WELCOME BACK

Welcome Back Parents! 

I cannot believe it is almost December. Time is flying! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday break. I was fairly heartbroken because my oldest was unable to come home because of his duties as a filmer for the football team. They keep winning, so he had to stay! Unfortunately, this was my Thanksgiving picture of my kids! :(
However, I am very thankful everyone is happy and healthy, and hopefully he will be home for the winter break. :)

**Just a few reminders as we move into December:

Tomorrow is our next Gumball Math Test!
December 1 - Texas Roadhouse Night
December 5 - PTA Holiday Shoppe - 8:00AM - 11:30AM! I will be reading Holiday stories!
December 7 - Landform projects are due
December 8 - Zazby's Night
December 10 - First Grade performance!
December 18 - Book Exchange and Holiday Party!

**If your child completed the reading and/or math challenge over the break, please return by Wednesday.
**If you would like to volunteer to help decorate the stage for the First Grade performance, let me know.

Just a couple of reminders from our nurse:



LiceIf a student is out for lice, when they return the student must come to me to be checked before going to class. Parents must sent in proof of treatment.  That can be box from treatment, receipt from store where they bought it or a letter/receipt from commercial lice treatment.  Addison is a nit free school.  All nits must be combed out of hair before returning to school.

Cough drops - Cough drops may be carried by elementary school students.  However, parents must bring them in, in original container, fill out “Authorization to carry over the counter medication” form. They must come into the clinic with cough drops and form.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
