Let’s give Thanks!

Families and Friends,

Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving and Hanukkah?!? Or as we are calling it around here “Happy  Thanks-Givukkah!”  We’ve been quite busy preparing for all of the joyous occasions.

Last week alone, we had three birthdays.  Romy, Noam, and Nathan all turned the big five years old!  Happy Birthday!!!!

The past two weeks we’ve had wonderful Mystery Readers, both Max and Nathan’s moms surprised us with, reading two books each!! Max’s mom read “The Story of Ferdinand” and “If I Built a Car,” and Nathan’s mom read, “There Is a Bird on Your Head!” and “That Is Not a Good Idea!”  All of the students LOVED the read alouds and asked lots of questions! Thank you so much Max and Nathan’s moms for sharing your love of reading with us!!! 🙂
