Dear Parents,

The end of the year is almost here! Many things happening for all of us and there is not much time to rest.

Please remember to take time with your children and breath! play a little game, unwind at the end of the day and feel the magic of the season and if possible go to bed early.

We are having a Holiday Party!! We just planned it with the class and we would like to all of you to come and be part of it!

Party Day is Tuesday December 17th from 11:30 am -1:00 pm.

The Party will be here in the classroom and we will have some surprises from some of the children and staff. We would also ask if any one of you would like to participate in the program that you can reach out to me and let me know. We are looking for someone that play an instrument or know magic tricks , singing etc.

The idea is to have hot cocoa with marshmallows , making individual gram crackers gingerbread houses to take home, a music and talent show and a game.

We will need some donations for the gingerbread houses and the hot cocoa. I will create an event in Track it Forward and you can go to sign up!

Since there is just a few more days for school just a friendly reminder that school will be out next week on the 20th and that they will be going home early (1:00 pm) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for Parent / Teacher Conferences.

I hope that you all can come and share with the class some ” holiday cheer” and continue on at home this holiday season.

I as the teacher and Mr Zoelan, we appreciate you and we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


Ms. Pat and Mr Zoelan.



Hello Dear Parents,

I hope that you had  fantastic Thanksgiving in the company of family and friends! I hope you were able to enjoy great food, rest and fun!

Now that we are coming back to our normal routine I wanted to touch base with you and give you a few reminders:

The cold has arrive and so is the snow. Please send your children dressed accordingly. The weather has to be below 20 degrees for them NOT to go outside. Other than that, they need to have the time to refresh for a long six hours in school.  Also please remember to  to send your children’s ” inside shoes” that helps to keep the classroom clean as we do a lot of work on the floor.

We are working more and also we are in the process of testing before the end of the term. Please have a normal routine for going to bed with your children. School age children needs a least 9-11 hrs of sleep per day. They also need a prep time of one hour before they go to bed off of any distractions like TV, Tablet, Computers , Video Games, Phones etc.  that can actually not allow them to have a more restful sleep. Please plan accordingly.

Also snacks are going to be low as we start the new week. I you would like to donate , please send me a message. Most of the perishable items were gone by the end of last week as we needed it to clean up the fridge. I will create a Track it Forward sheet for parents to sign up in the future.

Elementary Winter Concert in planned for Monday, the 9th at 5:30. The children have been practicing for it, they will be very happy for you to come and support them.

Please remember to sign up for Parent- Teacher Conference, they time will go fast!

We are hoping to have a Holiday Party before the end of the next break. I am thinking for December 19th from 11 am – 1:00 pm. I will have another sign up sheet with Track it Forward  for everyone to been able to participate. If you have any ideas of what to do please send me a note. I will love to see what are your ideas!

Again , thank you for your constant support to our classroom!
