• Information for this week/coming up:    
    Reminder: I highly recommend packing a lunch on Wednesdays, this is the only day that students eat in the classroom. The lunch lines can get long and having to travel back to class takes time away from lunch, as well. Don't forget to continue to pack your child's water bottle, and snack for daily use. 
    Message from PTO: Santa is coming back in town to read with his favorite grizzly gang. Signups will begin next Monday, November 16, at grovespto.membershiptoolkit.com. The event will be on Dec 4 @ The Hearth from 4-7. When you reserve your spot for cookies and story time, you will choose a time slot, much like Trunk or Treat. We look forward to another night of socially distanced fun! Don’t forget, reservations are required!

    Take Home Readers: Book in a Bag begins! Please read the directions inside the book bag on what to do and how to help your child further their reading.
