I now have a new e-mail address this year. Most of the time, it is easiest to contact me by e-mail. The office doesn't call me from the classroom for phone calls, so sometimes I don't get your message immediately. I do try to check e-mail before school, over my lunch break, and after school. My new e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Special thanks to Stephanie Goff and Jack Woods for contacting Santa. They arranged for Santa to drop in on the morning class. Due to Santa's busy schedule this time of year, he didn't make it back to the afternoon class, but we had other fun activities instead. Children were in complete awe when Santa walked into our classroom. The children were able to talk with Santa. They later watched a Christmas movie, opened gifts, and enjoyed yummy treats provided by parents. We thank the WEE-PATS group for donating the gifts and parents for bringing in party treats. The children (and staff) enjoyed both parties.
We had a fun filled afternoon. We sang Christmas songs. The children watched a movie--with popcorn. This was a real treat since we rarely watch television in preschool. We prefer to stay active during our short amount of time together each day. The children opened gifts that were provided by the WEE-PATS group (thanks so much families). We concluded our day with the class party.
