Weekly Newsletter for 12/5/13

Stonebrae Silent Auction Hula Hoops

Dear Room 4 Families,

We had a busy week due to our shortened schedule for parent-teacher conferences. If you were unable to attend your conference, please contact me to reschedule.

The picture above are the two hula hoops that I made and donated to the Stonebrae Silent Auction this Saturday, 12/7. This event is running concurrent with the PTA pancake breakfast and our Winter Concert. You can find out more details here. The two hula hoops includes a 45 minute lesson at a grassy location that will be negotiated with the winner (when the weather is nice).

There is NO SCHOOL tomorrow. Have a great 3-day weekend!
