LAST CHANCE FOR FOOD DRIVE CONTRIBUTIONS
Student Council will wrap up its food drive on Monday. If you haven’t yet contributed cans or other nonperishable items please send them tomorrow. A huge thank you to Kristen Ward for helping to coordinate this important community service project and for driving all the food to the food bank.
Please go to the Winter Faire web site and consider how you might help make simple crafted items to donate to the fairy room. Ideas and details are here: http://www.mountainsage.org/winter-faire.html The festival committee is encouraging every family to donate 12 items, and this could be a fun Thanksgiving break project. Also look for a sign-up genius coming soon for volunteering the day of the fair.
ROUGH DRAFTS OF DISEASE/ILLNESS/SUBSTANCE ABUSE REPORTS
Students will be turning in the rough drafts of their reports, which should be at least three substantive paragraphs on Tuesday. A 2-source Works Cited page will be due with the final draft but if they can get that done by Tuesday too that’s great. Thank you for giving the rough drafts a read-over Monday night if possible so that your 7th grader can learn more from editing and revising alongside you.
READING OVER THE BREAK
The only homework over the break will be to continue reading “Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.” I hope this is an enjoyable continuation of their reading rhythm over a restful holiday. Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am filled with gratitude for each of your children and for each of you.
