Holiday Reader's Theatre

We had an excellent showing at our Holiday Reader's Theatre! We were excited to see so many families able to come! The students worked very hard and performed well. I was able to load the performances so you can watch them again.

Christmas Houses

Here are some pictures of the 
Christmas houses the students made in art. 
They look fantastic and the hallway smelled delicious!

Bookclub orders due Monday, Dec. 13

It has been a while since I sent home book orders. They are due Monday, December 13th. If you would like to order books online and pay with a credit card, below is the information for completing that. Or, you may choose to send orders with your students. The books usually take one week to return, therefore, these books should arrive in time for Christmas.

Dear Parent,

Now it’s easier than ever to find the perfect books for your child—shop our NEW online Book Clubs Web site. Choose from a much-wider selection of books than in the printed flyer. Plus, you can send your orders directly to me online and use your credit card to pay.

Best of all, we earn a FREE book for the classroom library every time a parent places an order online.

It’s so simple! Here’s how it works:
  • SIGN UP at On the parent page, click the “Register” button in the “First Time Here?” section. Register for your own user name and password. When prompted, enter the one-time Class Activation Code shown above. This unique code ensures that your order is sent to me.
  • SELECT the books you’d like to order—choose from thousands of titles—many more than in our monthly flyers.

  • SEND your order to me online by the due date and your child’s books will be delivered directly to my classroom.
Ordering online is fast, easy, and secure.

Of course, you can still order using the form from the printed flyer. But why not see for yourself how convenient it is to order online?

Thank you!

Group Band!

Group band begins this week for 5th grade! On Tuesday and Thursday, all band students will need to bring their instruments. Instead of the lunchroom study hall at 2:20, the students will now be going to group band. The band lesson schedule will continue as it has been. Some days, students will have a lesson plus group band, and other days they will have just group band.
