Dear Families,

What a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration our class shared with Mrs. Ferreira’s class! It was lovely to see both classes interacting so nicely. Hope you all enjoyed the holiday with your family and friends.

The weather is will be changing quickly! Please remember this information regarding Blizzard Bags:

  • ●  K-2 students are asked to complete 2 assignments from the bingo board on each Blizzard Bag Day.

  • ●  When the students return to school, they should bring their bingo board back, with the squares colored in for the activities they completed, and any related work.

  • ●  Students have 2 weeks after the Blizzard Bag Day to bring back their completed work.

  • ●  If students do not complete the Blizzard Bag work, they will be marked absent for the day.

  • ●  You can also access the boards in the Quicklinks section of the Chandler School website.

    This year we will have 2 reporting terms, and report cards will be published on the Aspen portal in January and June. In addition to parent conferences during each term, I will also be sending home a Term Check-in, which will give families information about their child's progress both academically and socially/emotionally. These less formal check-ins will come home this Friday, December 6th.

    On Saturday, December 7th, the PTA hold our annual Holiday Festival. It is a great family experience and I enjoyed seeing many of you for the short time I was there. I hope you don’t forget your cameras- Santa will be a big hit!

    During the holiday season, many cultures use light to celebrate or commemorate special occasions. Our class will be learning about some ways light is used during different holidays as well as how various holidays all over the world are celebrated. I hope you have a terrific month! Here are some events to look forward to:


We hope you are able to join us for our Family Visiting Day on Friday, the 13th of this month. We will be celebrating the holidays with fun Gingerbread themed games and activities. Families are invited to join us from 11:00-12:15 in our classroom. We hope each child will have an adult to join them on this special day! However, if you or another family member is unable to attend, please let me know and we will make plans for your child to have a special school helper. I will be sending out a SignUpGenius requesting donations soon.

On Friday, December 20th, we will have a small class party to celebrate the holidays. We will sing, dance, and have a gift exchange. Please send your child with a small wrapped unlabeled gift valued at $6.00 or less that would be appropriate for both a girl and a boy. The children are continuing to learn about kindness, giving, and being thankful.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to

contact me by email, note, or phone call.

Important Dates:

Warm regards,
Mrs. Smith,
Mrs. Powers, & Mrs. White
