- School Trip: Friday, December 11th @10:15 am
We are seeing a winter classic - one of the all-time favourite timeless ballets and definitely the most popular ballet among children - The Nutcracker, accompanied by Tchaikovsky's famous score. The performance is complete with narration so even the youngest members of the audience can follow along.

LaGuardia Performing Arts Center website: "Clara travels with the help of music and dance and imagination. Her godfather, the mystical clock maker, Herr Drosselmeyer, is the one responsible for sending Clara on this exotic trip across time with the Nutcracker Prince. Get an injection of holiday cheer, as Clara, Old Drosselmeyer, and the Nutcracker Prince take a frolicking musical journey that happens only once a year."

All chaperones must be at school by 10:15 am, the show begins at 11:30 am. We will be getting to the show a 1/2 hour early and will be having lunch at the theatre. If you cannot provide a bag lunch for your child, let the teacher know so she can have the school provide a bag lunch.

- This weeks sight words are: NOT, JUST, OFF, I'M, BY - please practice these words daily with your child in addition to their assigned homework. Children will have a sight word test on Friday.
