Happy Holidays!


Christmas Celebration
    On Wednesday, December 22nd, the Dragonflies will be having a Christmas Party!  We put a note in your child's folder regarding the book exchange.  Each child is asked to bring a book that costs $4.00 or less.  Your child was assigned a name of someone in their class.  If you are unable to participate, please let us know so no one gets left out.
    To help us celebrate during our holiday festivities, we are in need of a few volunteers.  We will need families to bring a special snack, help with crafts, and other things which may be needed.  Please let me know if you are able to help.

Weather
    Please be sure to dress your children warmly as the weather changes.  We will try to  hold some outdoor activity time as long as it is safe for us to be outside.
    For delays and cancellations, we will follow the Van Meter Schools.  They post this information on Channels 8 and 13. You can also check their website at:
 www.vmbulldogs.com
    If they delay school 1 hour, we will hold our school day beginning one hour later than usual. If school is canceled or delayed for 2 hours, our Pre-Kindergarten will not meet that day.

Don't forget to check
(and clean out)
backpacks each evening! 



Book Orders
    Book orders are due December 2. You can order online if you choose.  Go to www.scholastic.com/bookclubs and log in using your user name and password. If this is your first time ordering online, use our Class Activation Code of: GM3MQThere are several more flyers to choose from if you order online.
    You can also send in the paper flyer and we will take it from there. 
    If any books are for a surprise for your child, please let us know so we can make arrangements to get them to you without your child knowing. 


Labels for Education
Keep sending in those Labels for Education!  We are getting closer to our goal.  The past few years have added up to around 7,200 points.  We will need 8,500 to order a drying rack for our classroom.  If you need more sheets to attach your labels to, please let us know!

Snacks
    Please remember as you choose your beverage to send for snack, that it must be 100% Fruit Juice or 2% white or chocolate milk.  This is a requirement sent down from the State of Iowa.  Please look for the words on the juice label that say 100% Fruit Juice.
