Next week Willard East will be home to Jenny’s Penguin Patch, a holiday store. Our class will have time to shop on Tuesday morning from 10:30-11:00. An envelope and additional information came home on Wednesday. PLEASE fill out the envelope and include the money if you would like your child to shop on Tuesday. Gifts will range from .25 to $12.00 each but the majority of items are between $1 and $4. The store will also be open on Thursday evening from 5:30-7:30 for family shopping time.
This might get a little confusing! Each year the first grade students do an economics unit in December. Students have already been working hard to earn tickets in our classroom. We will have our OWN store on Thursday, December 18th and students will have the opportunity to purchase items with the tickets they have earned. The first grade classrooms are currently collecting items for our store. These do not have to be new! Maybe you have a drawer full of happy meal type toys you would like to get rid of, or extra art supplies—this is the perfect time to donate those! We will happily use them as part of our class store.We have never had the Holiday Store at Willard East, so we are trying to make sure that all students understand the difference between it and our class store.
Our class winter party will be on Thursday, December 18th at 9:00 AM. Students will enjoy breakfast so they do not need to eat prior to school on this day.
On Tuesday, December 16th the first grade students will all meet the gym together for some holiday fun from 9:00-10:30AM.
