Grinch Party and White Elephant Gift Exchange

On Friday, December 14th, the third grade will be having a Grinch Party.  We will be watching the movie, How The Grinch Stole Christmas as a grade.  We will be serving “Grinch Popcorn” (sugared popcorn colored green) during the party.  Please let us know if you have a problem with your child eating this.  Since this day is a Free Dress Down day, we thought it would be fun for the students to dress up like the Grinch or a Who from the story/movie.  Any child that would like to do that sure can.  It will add to the fun for sure!

Our class will also be doing a White Elephant gift exchange party. Please send your child with a wrapped present on or before the 14th.  This can be something from around your house, a Dollar Store purchase, a toy you have lying around, something funny to make us laugh (Those are my favorite.), etc.  Please DO NOT go out and spend a bunch of money on this gift.  That will not be necessary.  Let me know if you need me to have a gift ready for your child.

A Letter From Our Librarian

Oops! Here is the google doc for you submission!
https://goo.gl/forms/joBX89AIiAQJN5t72

What is our Global Community?

Each year in the Q1 library, we like to encourage students to share their family’s heritage during our Global Literacy week. In year’s past we’ve done a Diversity Quilt, which showed family traditions & flags representing the family’s origins. We’ve also done a “Peace” wall to show the different languages in which our diverse population of students would say the word Peace. This year I would like to display on a map where our students come from. Show them a visual of our “Global Community” here at Quest. By doing this we would like to know what State or Country your student was born, or if your student would prefer, where their family originates from. We will then put their name on a “sticky” arrow & place them on the map. I think this will be a fun way to show how diverse our student population is here in West haven, Utah.

For responding, your students name will also be entered into a drawing to win a small prize here in the library. There will be one winner per class.

It really is fun to see where we all originate from & have the students start thinking a little more Globally. Also possibly finding a kinship with students from the same areas of the world. 

Thank you for participating!
 Mrs. Anderson
