Dear 8th Grade Families,
Can you believe it's almost the end of the First Trimester? The time is flying by and soon enough it will be Christmas. We have a busy month before Christmas break, however. 8th and 1st Grade Prayer buddies will be having a gift exchange during our Christmas party. Miss Bryan and I are asking that the students spend no more than $5.00 on their gift for their buddies.
We will also be working on our class's Christmas ornaments for the school tree Wednesday, November 30. I've asked students to bring in clean, used k-cups if they have them and items they would like to decorate their ornament with. We will be creating a snowman hat ornament, and since the job requires hot glue guns I would like to have one or two parents around to help with it. We will be working on them during first period (8:40-9:20) probably leaking a little into second period as well. If you are available to help with the activity, please let me know.
Here are some of the other activities scheduled until Christmas break:
November 27 - Advent begins
