DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
-LOCUST SCHOOL-

Hello Locust Families,

We had a very busy and successful November. I just want to start out by saying Thank You! Parent Teacher Conference- Thank you for taking the time out of your day to meet with your child's teacher. It is beneficial not only to you, but to the teacher as well. And to the parents that helped make our 50th Day of School so much fun and exciting! The students really enjoyed learning dances of this era, as well as participating in different actives associated with not only the 50’s, but the number 50 as well!

Report Cards

Be on the look out! Report cards will be coming home in the students backpacks on Friday December 1. You will receive two copies of the report card. One is for you to keep, the second is to be signed and sent back to school (in the envelope provided) with your child. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the report card, please be sure to reach out to your teacher.

Winter Festivals

With the month of December comes a lot of fun activities for our students. Each grade will be preforming a Winter Festival. This is where the students get to preform the songs they have been working so hard on in Music Class. After each performance the parents and family members are invited back to the classroom for a small celebration. See below for dates and times.
