The holiday season is here and I hope that you all have a wonderful time celebrating the season with friends and family. In the past many parents have gotten me Christmas gifts during this season. I truly have appreciated each and every gift. However, I would like to request that if you choose to do something this year I would like to suggest getting something for the classroom instead. Although I appreciate the recognition, I believe that getting something for the class instead of me will result in a life long investment for the students. This is totally optional and I do not want anyone to feel obligated to participate.
But if you would like to give us something for Christmas, here are some ideas: educational games for the classroom, books, art supplies, footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, gift cards to purchase items for the class, and Amazon gift cards to put toward purchasing a tablet for the classroom.
Thank you for your support.
