    Newsletter- December, 2021


    Dear Varieur Families, 

    I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends.  Time is flying by and we are already half way through our marking period.  Parent teacher conferences are Thursday, December 16, 2021.   Appointment letters have been sent home with your child.  We are offering in-person or virtual appointments.  Please make this a priority as it is important that you know how your child is doing so far this year.  

    We are looking forward to our Hasbro Day of Joy.  The children get very excited to see the Hasbro Elves come and bring them a surprise on the Global Day of Joy.  

    Our book fair was a big success.  The children were able to purchase books of their liking and even purchased books for family members this year.  

    Many children are working very hard to earn their Accelerated Reader point club ribbon.  We announce these on Fridays.  

    Also, once a month, we have been announcing two winners that have earned a kindness and or good behavior ticket.  These children have won prizes such as basketballs, footballs, do-it-yourself craft kits and gift cards to AMAZON.  

    A reminder, we run our school store on Fridays.  We sell Smencils for $1.00 and smelly crayons.  This money goes to special treats for the children, new books, and many other items that children would like to see in the classroom.  

    It is imperative that children be to school on time and every day.  Please make sure your child is wearing a mask and is free of any cold, flu, or COVID-like symptoms.  We want to continue to keep children and staff healthy. 

    In the spirit of giving and the holidays, many families ask what they can do for the students  Varieur.  We will always welcome the donation of new hats, gloves, and socks.  These items are always needed and make a tremendous difference for our students throughout the winter months

    I would like to wish you and your family a very special holiday and Happy New Year!

    Be Well and Be Safe .

    Ms. Boucher
