I'm going to be out of the building on Monday. My youngest daughter, Chloe, is having her 3 month scans at the DeVos Children's Hospital. For those who don't know, Chloe was diagnosed with a stage III Wilm's Tumor, a rare childhood kidney cancer, when she was four years old. She went through a couple of surgeries and six months of chemotherapy, and is now doing well. She has to go in for tests every three months to make sure that all is well.
We will be having our first ticket auction of the year on Tuesday afternoon to reward those who have been earning and keeping our class bonus tickets. At each auction, students have the opportunity to bring in 1 or 2 items that they may be interested in auctioning off to the class. They will get to keep the tickets that the purchasing student pays for the item(s). Please limit the items to simple little toys, stuffed animals, etc. No electronics or anything that requires batteries. I will also have a variety of items that I have purchased to auction off.
No Assigned Homework over Thanksgiving Break
This year I’m not assigning any homework over Thanksgiving Break. It would be great if students still read something on their own each day (and will need to if submitting this month’s BookIt! Calendar), but they will not need to respond.
Swimming starts on Monday, Dec. 1st
Don’t forget to add it to the family calendar! Pathfinders will be swimming each day starting Monday, Dec. 1st at 10:00am. Please make sure your son or daughter has a separate bag (plastic grocery bag is fine) with a swimsuit, towel, and comb/brush.
