A huge thank you to all who have ordered from Scholastic in the past, your orders have resulted in 176 points for our classroom. We will begin our December Book-It. Those Book-It forms will be due no later than December 20th, since we will be out for Christmas break. Once again, thank you to those who have been participating. We are still participating in a food drive from now until Dec. 16. Please feel free to bring in canned food items. If your child brings in 5 or more, they will be put in a drawing for a Walmart gift card and the class that brings in the most cans receives an ice cream party.

As always thank you for all you do!!
