December 2018


    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I can hardly believe it is the holiday season! As we focus on our theme of exploration, now is a good time to explore ways we can show compassion. There are ideas in our counselor section of this newsletter since this month our character of focus is compassion. I challenge you and our students to find ways to help others who may be in need or show kindness to others by paying it forward.


    The PTA is hosting Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 1st starting at 9:00am. If you have not attended before, this is a wonderful community event. Breakfast is served, and children can shop for family and friends in a store just for them.


    Arnold students in band, strings, and chorus are working hard to prepare for the Winter Concert on Monday, December 10th at 6:30pm at the Severn River Middle School cafeteria. We hope you can join us for this seasonal celebration.


    As we wrap up the calendar year, remember our last day of school for December will be Friday, December 21st.  We will return to school Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019.


    Wishing you and your family Happy Holidays!
