In our classrooms, we have been asking the students about what makes them thankful.
Some talked about friends and playing with the people they care about.
Others talked about special toys given to them by special people.
Lots of children talked about with their family and all the love and affection they give and receive.
We are enjoying learning more about our students and the ways they think and feel. We are also grateful for the chance to work with such an exciting and unique group of children.
Another upcoming event that we are thankful for is our exciting trip to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science! Our students are so happy to have the opportunity to experience the museum with their friends and classmates.
On Friday, students will need to be at school by 8:00 AM because we will need to be on the bus and leaving for Denver at 8:15. They will need to be wearing their purple Rivendell shirts, with a fully disposable lunch. If you did not receive a purple Rivendell shirt we will be supplying purple summer shirts.
We are also thankful for our changing seasons! Colorado is always exciting when it comes to the weather. Just as a reminder, students should be have a pair of snow boots AND a pair of inside shoes (sneakers, crocs, slippers with a rubber bottom). We do not allow students to wear their boots into the classroom because it leaves our carpet dirty or wet.
Finally! We are most thankful to the wonderful parents and families of our students. This year we have had tons of families come in to read, and help, and share with our classes. And even if you have not had a chance to come and be apart of the classroom, we still appreciate all the time, effort, and work that you do to make your kids the independent and capable kiddos they are.
