Monday AM Notes, December 16

Good Morning!
The week has arrived–5 days until vacation! It’s been a bit of wild few weeks since Thanksgiving and I’m hoping this week goes great for everyone! Make sure to have fun with your kiddos this week!

A little Christmas humor:
Q. What’s a sheep’s favorite Christmas song?
A. “Fleece Navidad”!

A few notes to get you going:
1) As I have done for the last few years during the holidays I have made a donation to the Deschutes Children’s Foundations on behalf of the Amity staff. Want to know more about the work the foundation does? https://www.deschuteschildrensfoundation.org

2) Monday: Antarctica slide show with David Marchi, Talus’ dad at 8:30am today.

3) Wednesday: Quinn and Griffin’s grandfather will be doing a little entertaining—singing and playing music—on Wednesday at 12:30.  He performed last year and the kids loved it and he’s offering to return.  I’m hoping everyone can join.

4) Staff Appreciation Breakfast on Tuesday at 7:15. Hosted by district administration. Come hungry!

5) Staff meeting on Tuesday at 3pm. Let’s meet in Sara’s room.

6) SIW this week is teacher directed. Please discuss with each other how you’d like to use the time.

7) Please continue to think about End of Year Celebrations. We’ve agreed we want to try something new this year and I think it’s important to keep the conversation open and continuous. I will be sending you a copy of the Amity manifesto in a separate email.

8) PE/Music and Art continue as usual this week.

9) Any Friday theme ideas? Wild hat day?

10) After the break we honor Martin Luther King, Jr on January 20 (his birthday is on Jan 15) this year.  I am hoping that you will spend some time honoring MLK with your classes–I think it is really important to keep the memory of King alive and to share his message of love and courage each and every year.  If you are looking for ideas here are a few (of many!) links:
