Newsletter 11/30/11

Thursday, November 30, 2011


  • Winter Potluck: Parents and guardians are invited to attend our annual Winter Potluck which will take place on Friday, December 16th at noon. Please bring the following dishes to share with the class:
          • 4th Years: Side Dishes (Macaroni and Cheese, Rice Pilaf, Mashed Potatoes)
          • 5th Years: Cheese, Meat, Bread, and Crackers
          • 6th Years: Desserts
  • Secret Pal Gift-Giving: Every year the UE students participate in a gift-giving activity before Winter Break. During this activity each student will randomly pick another student's name out of a hat and will be responsible for getting a gift for that student. There is $5.00 limit, but homemade and recycled items are encouraged. The gifts will be handed out at the Winter Potluck where each student will guess who their gift is from. Gifts should be wrapped but should not be marked with who the gift is from.
  • Mandatory 6th Grade Trip Meeting: There will be a mandatory 6th Grade Trip meeting on Wednesday, January 18th at 5:00pm in the UE classroom.
  • Tutoring Late Fee: We, SEDONA CHARTER SCHOOL, will charge a $20.00 late fee for each student picked up from tutoring after 4:30pm.
  • Local/Global Communities After School Club: Jacki will oversee UE and MS students in a new after school club focusing on promoting the welfare of our community as well as other communities across the globe. The group will meet each Friday from 3:30-4:30 in the UE classroom. The group will be working in partnership with New Global Citizens, a non-profit organization based in Phoenix and the Sedona Time Bank, a local non-profit organization.
