Dear Parents,

Tomorrow is the last day for students to bring in money for those less fortunate at Vision. Student government is supplying warm coats, hats and gloves with the money collected. I am so proud of many of my students that brought in their own money to share!

The food part of our party will be at 9:45 in the morning on Thursday. I know that is a weird time, but this is when my class is hungry, right between breakfast and lunch! Thank you so the many families that have offered to bring food!

We will be watching Prancer II after lunch.

Thank you so much for sharing your children with me this year. I absolutely love this class and enjoy your children! 

Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
