And just like that we are in December and all the crazy and busy that comes along with it! Hard to believe we are just 2 1/2 weeks away from holidays. These next couple weeks will be full! We have started talking about Holidays Around the World and we learned that in the Netherlands children draw names and then make something for that person at school, and everyone enjoyed doing this for someone in our class. We enjoyed some hot chocolate, and did some writing to go along with it, while also warming us up on one of these really cold, windy days!

- Our annual food drive is set to begin on November 25th! This year our class has been paired up with the grade 4’s and our challenge is to bring in as many cans of tuna or canned meat as possible. Our team will be awarded 5 points for every can of tuna/meat brought in. All other food items will be given 1 point. If you prefer to send in money, each dollar will be awarded 5 points. December 18th will be the final day to donate. I love this fundraiser as it blesses children and families in our own communities!
- Our Primary Christmas Concert will be held on December 19th at 1pm. This year the Grade Twos will be dressing up as wisemen. We will wear crowns (I will provide) and each student needs to wear their uniform, and bring a scarf. The scarf will be worn diagonally over their uniform.
- for our buddy Christmas Party, I need each student to bring one full toilet paper roll
