Mary's Weekly Update 12-1-17

posted Dec 1, 2017, 10:23 AM by Cynthia Friedman


We have a lot of material to cover this year, so it is very important that we can move forward in a timely manner.  Therefore, I will be giving each student a regular list of work not yet completed (if any).  Please help ensure that they are bringing this work home to complete as homework.  Also, please remind your student to bring the work back to the classroom!  Completing all work assigned is a critical part of their success.  

Art Project - Empty Bottle Needed

We will be doing another clay project before Winter Break, so everyone will need to bring in an empty bottle such as a water bottle, a small cleaning fluid bottle, or a large spice bottle.  The bottle will be a permanent part of the interior structure of a clay figure.

Towels, please!

We would like to add some sound absorption to our classroom.  To that end, I am putting out a call for old bath towels - any color, any size above washcloth.  I will be putting them into a wooden frame which will then be mounted on the wall.  According to some YouTube sources, six layers of bath towels works better than professional acoustic foam.

The Marketplace Event

The upcoming Marketplace Event on the 2nd of December is going to be enormous!  They are putting out the call for lots of volunteers.  Please contact the office to sign up to help.

Birthday Bash

December's Birthday Bash will be held on Friday, December 15th.  Please feel free to send a snack to share to the classroom on that day.  

PS:  Please return the Friday Folder to the classroom on Monday!
