P-4 Newsletter October 20, 2011 Dear Families, Halloween Update Reminder our school will be celebrating Halloween on Friday October 28th. Students will be allowed to wear their costumes to school but we will not be having a traditional Halloween party. Mrs. Davis and I have planned a super fun filled day that supports our literacy theme of the month: Famous People. Children are encouraged to dress up as a famous person. They can be living or dead, but not fictional. Mrs. Lindberg and I will be dressing up too! We are fortunate that the PTA is hosting a “Spooktacular” event that same evening from 6 to 8 pm. On the other side of this newsletter is an outline of our “Famous Person” celebration. We would love to have you as a part of our celebration however, because our classes are working together, we ask that you let us know when you are coming. This way we can let you know which room we will be in and how we can best use your help Treats Kids will be enjoying lots of treats at the PTA’s afterschool event. So, we are asking for healthy snacks to serve during the bingo game at 1:35. You can send in snack/drinks at any time during the day. Please email, send a note or give me a call if you are able to contribute food to help me plan for this event. Fashion Show All students in second grade will get to watch each other share their famous people costumes. Each student who chooses to dress up as a famous person will get the opportunity to share their costumes and tell about who they are. Tina McGann has offered to be our official photographer for this event. Many of our literacy groups have been studying famous people and they will get a chance to share what they have learned after the fashion show.
