Thank you to those who volunteered to chaperone for the field trip to the Chicago Children's International Film Festival on Wednesday, November 1st. I selected chaperones by inputting volunteer names in a random generator which then selects who is chosen. For future field trips, parent volunteers that have not been chosen will be given first priority.
The following students' parents have been chosen:
Chaperones- please be at Lenart by 10:50a. We expect to be back at Lenart by 2:00p.
LPCG's OktoberFest is coming up this Friday. For one of the activities, each class will be decorating pumpkins to be auctioned off on Friday night. Our class will be painting pumpkins tomorrow, Wednesday the 25th. We will be using tempera paint and everything will be washable, but please send your student with clothes (either already on or can change into) that they can get a little messy in.
Thank you so much and hope to see you all for OktoberFest!
CPS is recognizing 3rd and 5th graders for having perfect attendance. Several students in our class were invited to visit the Skydeck at Willis Tower on Thursday, October 26th. Ms. Wanders will be supervising the trip. If you are interested in chaperoning this field trip, please email Ms. Waders at firstname.lastname@example.org. TIckets were provided by CPS, therefore we have a limited number of chaperone tickets. Chaperones will be selected by first responses to Ms. Wanders.
If you have any general questions, please contact Mrs. Lee, email@example.com.
Hi! These are our mid-October announcements:
- Picture day is on Friday, October 20th.
- We will have a field trip to The Children's International Film Festival on Wednesday, November 1st. The cost is $6. Permission forms and money will be due on the 27th.
As part of the cultural aspect and global awareness of the language, students will be learning about “Día de los muertos” or Day of the Dead from October 16- November 2 during Spanish. We will be discussing the history, the purpose of the holiday and how it’s celebrated in many Latin American countries. Below is a website that provides more information on this yearly tradition. https://www.nationalgeographic.org/media/dia-de-los-muertos/
An “ofrenda” or offering will be placed on the 3rd floor by the Spanish room and you are welcome to stop by and see it (Oct 31- Nov 3). The “ofrenda” will represent elements necessary for life on Earth, different types of food, and pictures of deceased family members. If you’d like, please send a picture of a loved one who has passed away OR send a picture of a famous philosopher, singer, actor, astronomer etc. so that it’s placed on the “ofrenda.”
3rd grade will be doing a Day of the dead writing craftivity.
Many students are excited about this project and I hope that your child is able to participate. Learning about culture helps us understand other people’s perspectives, patterns of behavior, and contributions to the world at large. If you are not comfortable with your child participating in this cultural lesson, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name and grade. An alternative assignment will be provided.
Please send pictures with your child before October 27 or drop them in my mailbox with a name and grade for a safe return.
Thank you very much!
P.S. Don’t forget to stop by and see the OFRENDA in person. Last year our OFRENDA was highlighted on channel 66 UNIVISION. It is the first picture on the webpage below.
