Dear Families,

What an exciting week we have coming up!  Our annual Stone Soup lunch is a chance for our students to cook and serve lunch for their families.  Stone Soup lunches happen in many schools- I attended my very first one while student teaching at Marcy Open 27 years ago.  It is a very special tradition for me- I have made Stone Soup with my students every single year of teaching.

The story has so much power, especially in troubled times.  No one can save the world alone, but EVERYONE can do SOMETHING.  When we work together, big things happen.  6,7, 8 year olds can feed a whole army.  So send some vegetables!  Fresh, raw ones are the most fun to prepare, but frozen and canned veggies make wonderful additions to the soup.  We need all raw veggies to come by Wednesday (our scrubbing day) and will chop and cook on Thursday.  We will serve soup and corn muffins to all of YOU on Friday, November 29, from 11:30-12:30, and so hope you can come!

Book Clubs

Thanks for your prompt response and for reading your chapter books at home this weekend.  We will have our first book club lunch on Tuesday.  Dawn will lead Thomas Edison, Sara Johnson and Colleen Ueland will lead Despereaux and I get the Ramona kids. Michelle Pryce will be the reader for kids who need a school reader.  Thanks to everyone for supporting our Let it Shine bookclubs!

Wild Rumpus

So many books!  We have a big pile of wonderful books, thanks to all of your gifts.  What bounty!  The kids were so proud to bring them, and we are looking forward to reading all of them.  As Ellie said- “These new books are fantastic!”

Big Buddies

We are embarking on some service project work with our big buddies.  We are thinking about  what we can do for each other, for our school and for our community and the world!  We have done our brainstorming and are compiling data in order to select the best projects.

Raz Kids

As your students work with Raz kids at home, make sure they are only clicking on their own account.  Some students have had “vandalism” in their accounts.  I am looking into putting passwords in place- until that happens,  please monitor your kids!  We have many students enjoying reading with RAZ kids, and I am so proud of all of you!

Let it Shine!

Thanks,  Kristin
