Mrs. Harrison Weekly Letter

December 9, 2016
Dear Kiddos,
         We are officially only 5 days away from Christmas break, and I definitely feel the excitement in the air.  I think Elvin feels the excitement as well as he held your brownie point treats hostage for a day.  I’m super glad you all settled down and earned your cookies back yesterday!
         Speaking of Elvin, he has been traveling around the world to learn about Christmas traditions in other countries.  Tell me at least two facts or traditions you have learned and which country they belong. 
         We also started reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.  Can you write a simple summary of the book so far?  Remember what we have learned about summaries over the past couple weeks.  You are all doing such a fabulous job with your summaries. 
         I understand it is always harder to be a leader when it is close to a break from school.  However, it is important to be a leader all the time!  How have you shown leadership at NP this week?  What do you think you should improve on for next week? 
         I cannot wait to spend next week with you.  So many exciting things will be happening…service projects, Christmas programs, fun activities, and ice cream sundaes.  Remember, as always, you have to put first things first to participate in all the excitement!
