Week of Dec. 7-11

Dear Parents,
This week we will be reviewing the vocabulary of the colors learned in this second quarter. Those colors are: purple, black, brown, gray and white. 

This week we will be focusing on an author study which will be about Lois Ehlert. Lois Ehlert is an amazing author of the books like the ones we will be studying this week. Her books are great to encourage reading skills, and learn about colors , ABC and so many more great lessons. The best of it is that she writes in a very fun and friendly way to get children engaged to her stories.

Some of the stories for this week are: 

This week we will be discussing Christmas. We will be making Christmas Crafts and reading a lot of stories related to this holiday. If you have any Christmas stories that we could borrow from you, we would appreciate if you send them over with your child to school. We will be returning them before the holiday.

Our annual Songfest will take place on Friday, December 11th at 6:30 p.m. Please mark this date and time on your calendar. Take into consideration that this is the time where traffic gets a little bit hectic in this city. We would really like to see all the children in school at 6:00 p.m. so we can go over last details with them. They are all very excited practicing their song every day with a lot of enthusiasm. Your child needs to come in dressed as village people. If you need help with the costume ideas please let us know as soon as possible! Thank you for your support. 

Santa Claus will be visiting the children for this Christmas Party!!! We are requesting for you to send a gift so Santa can give it to your child. If you have not sent the gift please do so as soon as possible. We are still missing a lot of presents. It would be very sad to see a child without a gift. The gift should not be more than 200 lps. Thanks in advance for your support!

Challenge at Home is a small activity assigned to do at home during the weekend with children. It could be a short story, a game, a song. Every Monday Morning we will discuss about this little challenge. The objective is to enjoy and to reinforce their learning and comprehension. We always appreciate your involvement with your children’s learning.

For this week, our first Challenge at Home will be practice the circle shape building. On the note book you will find a worksheet that they have to bring back to school on Monday to discuss how was their experience. Hope you have lots of fun with this activity.

SONG FEST – Please do not forget that this Friday, December 11 we will hold our Songfest. This year, the theme is the AWESOME 80’s, and our students have been working very hard in preparing their presentations for our school community. The show will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Since traffic tends to be very hectic at this time of the year, and especially on Fridays, we recommend you try to be here early. We are inviting you to come at 5:00 p.m. and enjoy the delicious food that will be sold by the DPTO, the drinks sold by the Seniors, and the tasty pastry sold by the Community Service, and do a little bit of Christmas shopping with selected vendors from the Xmas Bazaar.

NPH GIVING TREE- Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education.  Here in Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children.   While many children at the ranch have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit.  It is these children, whom we would like to provide for this Christmas.   On the second floor of the secondary building, a NPH Giving Tree will be set up.   If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes or socks.  Purchase the new item and return it to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Rm. 7) by Tuesday, December 8th, with the tree tag taped to it.  Thank you for giving this Christmas!
