We started out the month with classroom observations and parent/teacher conferences. If any parent has not had a conference with their child's teacher and would like to please speak with your child's teacher.
Our Thanksgiving Feast was held on Monday 12/1 due to the inclement weather on 11/26. The children enjoyed the sandwiches and extra treats that the parents donated - thank you to all who contributed and helped.
Carol Robbins from New Hope Pantry came to collect all of the food donations that our families collected. She went around to the classrooms to thank the children.
Mr. Chris went over the musical story of "Peter and the Wolf". He explained all of the instruments that played the characters. Mr. Chris is expanding, Mr. Kevin has joined him for our music lessons. Some weeks Mr. Kevin will come to our school instead of Mr. Chris. In our B Fit Kids international dance class for November we learned about Africa and did a tribal dance.
