Social Studies this week:

The students will be packing their bags and applying for a “passport”!  They’re about to embark on a fabulous journey around the world to learn how other countries celebrate Christmas and other winter holidays.  Our first stop….ITALY!!  We need some parent volunteers to help with ethnic food, crafts, and language.  If you can help this week, don’t worry, there is still an opportunity for you to help!  We will be visiting other countries each week, and I can provide you with a list of help needed!  If you have read this entire newsletter, please have your child bring a slip of paper with pickle written on it.
