We made it to the final week of school for 2015! Woohoo! Important reminder: Thursday is the last day of the trimester and also the last day to turn in missing work or Correction Forms to be counted toward report cards. It was great to hear the 5th graders sing last Friday at the Christmas Concert. We will be celebrating Christmas in our classroom on Thursday with a party, but not before a whole lot of hard work leading up to it! Make it a great week, everyone!

Quick Note About Christmas Gifts For Mr. RiedlEvery year I am overwhelmed with the love from the West Hills families in the form of Christmas gifts. Although it is wonderful that my families want to give me gifts, I was hoping that this year we could do something a little different... My sister, Mrs. Anna Isbell, teaches a bilingual Kindergarten class at Riverside Elementary School in Milwaukie (a high poverty school), and she is in need of support. She wants to buy school supplies for her students, and she has created a DonorsChoose.org site to raise the money for the items. It would be such a wonderful gift to me if my students would go visit my sister's site and donate money to her students rather than buying anything for me. Then maybe my students would want to write me a card to tell me that they helped support other kids in other schools. :-) I would love that!!! This is just a suggestion-- thanks for being open to exploring other ways to show Jesus' love during the Christmas season!
