Although gratitude never goes out of style, it seems with Thanksgiving in November, that this is the month we really focus on thanks-giving and being grateful! Thank you for taking your time to join us at parent-teacher conferences last month. Thank you, too, for sharing your children with us each day!
Our first through fifth graders are attending the NIU game on November 5th. EVERYONE (including kindergarten) will need a sack lunch and a drink on this day, as our kitchen will not be open. First through fifth grade students will also need $2. Thanks to our PTO for funding the additional $2 a person to help us attend. It's always fun to showcase a college campus and practice good sportsmanship!
We have our November Book Fair coinciding with Family Math and Reading Night again this year. Please join us to peruse books, and learn fun reading and math games as a family! The theme for this year is "Lights, Camera, Learn!"
Just a quick reminder, we go outside if the weather is 10 degrees or warmer (including the windchill.) Please have your students dress warmly for being outside and call if you have any questions.
We end the month with some time off for Thanksgiving Break! From all of us here at Tilton, we wish you all a thank-filled and restful break!
