October is almost over! It was a whirlwind of special events and I hope you’ve been checking out all of the fun on our classroom Twitter page! We will end the month with our Halloween Parade and Party and we are so grateful to our amazing Parent Volunteers who make all of the fun possible. Just a reminder that if students are not going home at lunch to change, that they must wear regular clothes to school on Wednesday morning and then they will have time to change during Lunch and Recess.
Our class will meet our high school intern from Buffalo Grove on Monday! Mr. Gross will be with our class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons as he learns more about the teaching profession. We are very excited to welcome a former Gator back to the pond! Looking forward to another fun-filled week at Greenbrier!
