Requests and Reminders:
*This Wednesday, we will attend the music field trip. Your child needs to wear their blue field trip shirt and jeans. Please pack a sack lunch and drink for your child. The bus will leave school around 9:30 and return around 11:30.
*For our Christmas outreach, 2nd grade will be collecting items for Oceanside Nursing Home. This is a government funded home where residents typically do not have any family. It is located on Tybee so during the Christmas season while other homes are often flooded with songs, performances, and gifts, this one is often forgotten. Currently, we are the only ones who are bringing them items. By Friday, the 19th, could you please send in one of the following items: non slip socks, men's white t-shirts, small throw blankets, and lotion. They are incredibly appreciative!! This is in lieu of students exchanging gifts with each other.
