Happy Monday Kate Mitchell Families,

To start off the week, we have a quick reminder from the wonderful nurses here at the building:

Lice Reminder: 
Parents/guardians should assume that head lice are in the community, as well as, school at all times of the year. Many research studies support parents/guardians perform weekly screenings of their child’s hair. I would recommend this practice as hopefully it would mean a mild case of head lice and be easier to treat. Please do not hesitate to call us here at school if you have any questions about treatment. 
Thank you, 
Nurse Kim and Jolene

Lost and Found: Please remind you children to check the lost and found for items that should be at your house that have disappeared. Labeling hats, gloves, coats and other winter weather items will also help us return them to their rightful home and keep you children nice and warm now that the winter weather has arrived and seems to be sticking around now. You are welcome to come check the lost and found for yourself too if you are suspicious about what hasn’t been coming back from school with your child. 

Today starts the Holiday Shoppe in the guidance room, room 410, next to our 2nd grade rooms. The gift giving season is upon us and the Kate Mitchell PTA is again offering The Holiday Shoppe.  The upcoming Holiday Shoppe invites your children to have a fun-filled time of shopping for family and friends. Your children will have the opportunity to shop secretly and experience the joy and excitement of holiday gift giving.  The Holiday Shoppe is set up and supervised by parents and teachers. Your young shoppers will have the opportunity to purchase gifts conveniently and inexpensively while learning to budget their money.  This year we are going to offer gifts ranging from $.50 to $5.00 for family members of all ages. Examples of some items may include : small toys, candles, blankets, puzzles, ornaments, mugs, flashlights, etc. You will need to create a budget and buying guide with your children.  Please fill out the shopping guide and include money in the attached envelope. The Holiday Shoppe will be open Monday, December 10th through Thursday, December 13th. Your child’s teacher will schedule a time for the class to shop during the school day. In addition, the Holiday Shoppe will be open after school from 3:30-4:00pm (Wednesday until 2:30).
