Happy Holidays 2005
New parent introduction:
No new parents this month.
Guest Speaker from After School Connection:
Jennifer Slater made a presentation about a program called, "Make
Parenting a Pleasure". The curriculum is from Birth To Three. Jennifer would
like to offer this program but she needs two volunteers to be the
facilitators. They would receive two days of free training in Eugene that
includes lunch on January 12th and 13th, 2006. Jennifer offers 8 week
sessions at Laurel and would like to see the same at Territorial.
Participants get free dinner and free childcare during the classes. Jennifer
will work with us to make that happen at Territorial also if we can get the
volunteers. Jennifer thinks this is an excellent program and hopes we can
generate some interest at Territorial.
Alan reported that teachers worked on progress reports yesterday. Everything
is on computer this year to make things easier on everyone. Report
cards go home December 15th. Alan explained revised progress report form
and the strategies used in evaluating students.
Computer lab will grow by 4 or 5 new computers next month.
Scandinavian Dance going very well. There will be a performance on
Friday, Dec. 16th for all to enjoy.
Alan went before the school board re: meeting standards. He showed the
Territorial Tattler and other impressive things our school has been

drawings. $53.00 reimbursed Jennifer Carr for prize baskets.

Holiday Bazaar is going very well. We're getting lots of donations from

Preschoolers will team up with 4th graders on Tuesday to make things go
smoother for the little ones. This is just a trial to see if it works.
