Monday will be Day 4 in our specials rotation. This week our K-2 students will be taking their mid-year math benchmarks and our 3-5 students will be completing their mid-year iReady diagnostics. On Monday our 3rd graders will be traveling to the Andy Griffith Playhouse to see The Nutcracker. On Tuesday students who have returned their money and order forms will have their pictures made with Santa. It's not too late if you would like for your child to have their picture made, but please return the forms, along with $5 tomorrow. On Thursday afternoon our classroom spelling bee winners will compete in our school spelling bee. On Friday our 4th graders will be traveling to The Andy Griffith Playhouse to see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and to Nester Hosiery to tour. Please make sure that our 3rd and 4th graders have returned their permission forms for their field trips. Please remember that yearbooks are on sale now for $20. Once we return to school following our winter break, the price will increase to $25. Also, please consider downloading the Box Tops app. The new app allows you to scan your store receipts and instantly add the earnings to our online school account. This will prevent you from having to snip and send in Box Tops. If you are unable to download the app, we are still happy to accept labels as well. Looking ahead, school will dismiss at 1:00 on Friday, December 20th. There will be no after school daycare on this afternoon.
