Room 9 news

November 20, 2019

Dear Parents of Room 9,


Can you believe it's already the middle of November? We had a wonderful time at Hidden Villa last week. THANK YOU to Alaa, Ana, Anair, and Sasha for joining us on the field trip! If you are hoping to join us as a chaperone on our next (and last) field trip of the year, please make sure you get fingerprinted. You have until April/May to get it done, but waiting until the last minute could be problematic. That field trip will be to the Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose, and we usually go in May.

This week we will have Art in Action Friday morning. Please sign up on the Shutterfly site if you would like to join us!

And if you haven't taken a look at the school calendar in a while, I suggest that you catch up on the upcoming holidays and Winter Break. If you are planning to miss any school days for Winter Break, please let me know.

Hope you are all well and staying healthy!


Mrs. Otsuji
