I can't believe its November already! We have lots planned this month as you can see below. We will learn about the brave heroes we call Veterans. If you are a Veteran, we thank you for your service. If you have anything you would like to share with our class, please let me know.
We will learn about Pilgrims and Native Americans and the roles they played in building our country. One project we will enjoy is creating a Native American outfit. Students will design/decorate a khaki color t-shirt to wear at our Pilgrimage on November 17th. I can get shirts for $3.00. I will place the order on November 3rd. If you would like for me to include your child in the order, I need your $3 no later than Friday, November 3. Your child will keep the shirt to wear it home on the 17th. If you have any old t-shirt paint you no longer need/use, we will gladly accept the donation. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.
