If you did not like your child’s individual photos, we have schedule the “photo retake day” for Dec. 12. Please return your packet the week of December 8-12 to your classroom teacher with a note to add them to the retake list. Have your child dress for success on the morning of the 12th and a new photo will be taken. Please note that the class photos are not retaken. Keep your class photo from your order packet.
For those students who were out sick or absent on regular “Photo Day” and have already placed an order with Irvin Simon, we should already have your order forms. Please send a note reminding your teacher that you need a photo so that they will send your child down to the auditorium for their photo.
Finally, if anyone would like to help Gina on Retake Day please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org

International Night is coming up on Thursday, January 22nd
We are looking for volunteers to help us kick off our annual celebration of cultures and traditions from around the world! Do you like to perform or know of any performers of international folkloric dance?? In previous years we have had Korean fan dance performers, Armenian dancers, Aztec dancers, Japanese sword performers, Capoeira artists, and many, many more! Do you like to cook or know amazing crafts you’d like to share? It takes a “global” village to get this party started! The world is our oyster. Please contact Marta Molina Seal at email@example.com.
Parents in 1-141 go to Gym first
Parents in 1-103 go to classroom first
during second period classrooms will swap!
I hope this year finds everyone happy, healthy, and feel musical. I am excited to announce that this January I will be opening the doors to the music room for you to participate in a class with your child! Each week I hear the children expand their musical knowledge and repertoire and watch them build our musical community. I want to extend an invitation to you to share in these wondrous developments.
Below is a save-the-date in the hopes that many of you can make arrangements with work and childcare (I ask that only adults attend this event as to minimize distractions). Siblings will be welcome at the Spring Sing, of course!
Wednesday, January 14:
Period 1: Sarah’s class (Parents visit from 8:30-9:00)
Period 2: Justin’s class (Parents visit from 9:30-10:00)
Period 5: Kristin’s class (Parents visit from 12:15-12:45)
Wednesday, January 21:
Period 1: Liz’s class (Parents visit from 8:30-9:00)
Period 2: Allison’s class (Parents visit from 9:30-10:00)
Period 5: Donna’s class (Parents visit from 12:15-12:45)
On the day of your visitation please check in with security who will send each group up to the music room at the designated time. Some seating will be available, but I encourage you to wear comfortable clothing, as most of the seating will be on the floor with the children. This makes the experience all the more authentic!
I’m looking forward to seeing you all in my classroom in January. Thank you in advance for supporting this new opportunity and for all you do to bring music to the lives of the students here!
