Thanksgiving is over and we hope that everyone had a happy and healthy break. December is always an exciting time at school with all the activities. Just three weeks left until Christmas!
BAD WEATHER - The cold mornings reminds us that we need to be prepared in the event that school will be cancelled due to inclement weather. Closings will be announced on WTAP-TV and radio WXIL, WMOA/WJAW, and WNUS. You may also check the internet at www.wtap.com. Closings are listed on WTAP-TV beginning at 5:00 a.m. Rarely we may be dismissed early in the day due to severe weather. Please make an alternate plan with your children if this should happen. The phone lines are tied up and we cannot contact parents. Again, listen to your radio in this event.
NUTCRACKER - Grades 1 and 2 will be going to Marietta High School on Friday, December 11 to see a presentation of 'The Nutcracker'. They will be leaving school at 9:45 and will return around 12:00 noon. They will have a box lunch.
- *After school Christmas Concert rehearsals have been scheduled.
The location of these rehearsals are subject to change! Christmas
Band rehearsals: December 1, 3, 8, 10, 15, 16. *These rehearsals will
be at the high school, and are from 3:30-no later than 5:00. This
is the only way we can rehearse this music as a group due to scheduling
conflicts. These rehearsals are not mandatory but STRONGLY recommended.
