December Events

We may not be covered in snow down here in good old Mesa, AZ…but we are now in December and the cold is upon us…the afternoons may be amazing but the mornings are sure cold!  So we have a couple events that may warm you and the kids up.  But before I get to that…we have updated our Teacher Favorites.  So don’t forget to take a look and see what your teacher would like.  If you are shopping online at Amazon Smile, make sure to use our link Las Sendas Amazon Smile.

December Events

Donation Drive/Candy Cane Chase (December 9th) – As you’ve seen we are doing a Donation Drive to help earn some money to install the projectors into the classroom ceilings.  As you can see from the picture, shadows/students (or teachers)/projectors on tables…do not mix.  This Donation Drive will help us to get the projectors installed into the ceilings of the classroom so the teachers and the students can use the smart boards the way they were intended to.  All it takes is $60.00 per family to help out.  We’ve already had such a great turn out.  We honestly do have the best parents!!  So thank you to all who have given and to those who give of themselves on a daily basis!!

In order to celebrate this achievement, we will be having a celebration on December 9th.  There will be candy canes, kids, bells, and an Elf to chase.  So come on out and watch your kids enjoy their run and the chase of a very popular Elf.  The schedule for the run is:

Student Council Spirit Day – Polar Express Pajama Day, December 11th – We all know it can be hard to get your kiddos out of bed this time of year (since it is still dark outside) and ready for school…but what better way to combat that, then with a Polar Express Pajama Day?!  It sounds like a win-win.  Can’t wait to see the kids dressed in their warm and comfy PJ’S!!
