Dear Edison Families,
We were so proud of how hard the students ran in the Jog-a-thon last Friday!! It was great having several of you there supporting the runners and we even had one mom who ran the entire 45 minutes with the kids! Please finish collecting the money from friends and family and return it to school by next Friday, November 21st. Thank you so much for your support of the Mayo foundation!
Please find attached the reservation form for Thanksgiving Lunch which will be on Tuesday, November 25th. It is important to remember that if you plan on joining us for lunch, you must fill out the reservation form and prepay. This day is also a Community Day at Mayo which means your child will spend most of the day with their Mayo family doing various activities related to pumpkins and Thanksgiving. We will also be eating lunch with our family groups.
Important repeat information:
As you probably know, we have been researching inventors during our literacy time. Almost every child has finished two different inventors! If you were at Back to School Night, you will remember that we told you that the Edisons will be dressing up and presenting information about one of the inventors that they researched. We have set a date for this Living Museum. December 8th will be when we present for the other instructional areas and for parents and friends. We know this is a little while away but we want to give you plenty of time to look at pictures on the internet or in books and scrounge around the house and/or thrift stores for your child's costume. The costumes are due at school on Wednesday, December 3rd. We will be presenting for our homebase groups on Friday, December 5th and don't want anyone to forget their costume. We are working with the students on who they will be portraying and they should know by tomorrow.
We have scheduled some Field Studies and wanted to share the dates with you.
