Show and Tell

Hello! I know that not all kids have done a show and tell. We had 9 kids from each class do one in September. About half of them didn’t bring one and I had a lot of complaints and concerns voiced about that. So, October’s show and tell is a make-up for those kids. Somehow word has gotten out that everyone who hasn’t done one yet gets to this Friday. I don’t know where that came from, but I have had now 9 emails in the last 2 days informing me that children are bringing unscheduled show and tells this Friday. Realistically, with adding this to the children who are actually scheduled for show and tell, we don’t have the time to do them all on Friday, especially in the PM class. Please don’t do a show and tell until you get an email specifically mentioning that it is your child’s turn. Kids are talking about it in class, so I think it is too late to tell them it’s not their turn this time. I will cancel art in PM and Spanish in AM if I need to, and we’ll get it handled this time.

I promise all kids will get a turn, it takes about 3 months to cycle through everyone, 4 months this time because of this month’s make-up. Here is what the schedule is for the next 2 months:

November – AM – Alex, Hadley, Abby, Mia, Marissa, MJ, Carson, Luke, Chloe. PM – Hudson, Jett, Emmy, Emma, Kailoni, Matthew, Malia, Ava, Ben
December – AM – Davis, Charlize, Jakson, Allison, Jakey, Zach, Austin, Dylan. PM – Dylan, Peyton, Caleb, Taylor, Greyson, Jaxson, Juliette

I will send home another reminder the week of your child’s show and tell. If your child brings one this week, I’ll adjust accordingly. Thank you!
