I hope your children were as excited to be back at school this week as I was to see them. We had a great time back in the classroom. The preschool students are excited to find out who their buddies will be! Some of them seem to have already chosen their buddies! Friday in class I will be assigning buddies. I will send out an email with that information over the weekend.

We spent a great deal of time just getting to know each other these past two days. Next week we will be back to our normal schedule.

Please remember during these winter months to keep an eye/ear on the local news stations for weather related delays and cancelations. I also will keep you posted here on this webpage and on our facebook page as well. The school district website gives updates as well.

Next week we will be collecting food for the local food bank. Your child can donate cans of food in the classroom. This is a great way to teach your child how to give to others. I will also be collecting toys for our local Share and Care program. After adding up the years I have lived in Scappoose I realized this is the 24th year I have volunteered with Share and Care. This is such a great program that helps families right here in Scappoose. New, unwrapped gifts and canned food are all needed to help make Christmas  a little brighter for our local families.

Don't forget Santa will be here on December 19th at 6:30 pm

I was in Vegas this past week for a Career Technical Educators Conference. I learned a lot of things to help me fill my educators tool box. One thing I learned about is a great app for our Ipads that we will start using after the holidays. I will need to make sure that I have photo permission forms back from all of you in order for the high school students to use this app. If you happen to see a photo release form come home with your child please return it right away so you can start receiving some great photos of your child in action!

I hope all of you are staying warm. Please let me know if you have any questions, Robyn
