TREA Newsletter: November 29th-December 3rd

Hello all! Welcome back from Thanksgiving break! We hope that you had a restful week with family and loved ones. We have a LOT happening over the next three weeks and before we break for Christmas. Make sure you’re checking Google Classroom to stay up to date on things happening in individual classes!

We have themed weeks every week from now until Christmas Break!

This coming week the theme is “favorite holiday shirt or sweater”–come ready to wear your funniest, cutest, or even ugliest holiday shirt or sweater!

Next week, December 6th-10th, is “favorite Christmas hat or headband”–track down your antler ears, silly Christmas tree hats, or create your own masterpiece!

December 13th-17th, come decked out head to toe in whatever Christmas themed items you’d like to wear! Have a favorite elf costume? Love cute Christmas leggings? You can wear it all!

Blessing Bags day is coming up! ALL campuses, all students and their families, are invited to join us at the CPW campus on Thursday, December 9th from 12:00-2:30pm for a potluck soup lunch and to assemble bags to gift to the homeless in and around Austin. We have enough bags, but still need some supplies!

We are still gathering supplies for Blessing Bags Day! We have enough bags for the day, but we still need non-perishable food items, gloves, warm blankets, hand-warmers, and toiletries. It would be amazing if each family purchased items to assemble their own bag to gift and a couple extra items to share. Complete list of needed items can be found on our Blessing Bags information page!

Over the next few weeks, teachers will be doing various things to celebrate the Christmas holidays. We will post in the Newsletter reminders, but make sure to check your student’s google classroom just in case something is missed. Here’s a list of known events:

  • Round Rock Art needs shoeboxes for tomorrow, building materials for 12/6, and donations for graham cracker houses for the 12/13–make sure to find more details on Google!
  • Round Rock and CPW Spanish will be doing a fruit salad party the week of 12/13 and 12/14 as part of their Christmas celebrations
  • Music at CPW will be hosting a Christmas performance from 11:30-12:00pm in the sanctuary on 12/14
  • Music at RR will be hosting a performance 12/13. More details to be added soon!
  • Most homeroom teachers will be doing something Christmas related with their students! I will add more details as I have them.

We are still looking for parent volunteers to supervise students during lunch and recess (12pm-1pm) on Monday 12/13, Tuesday 12/14, and Wednesday 12/15 so that teachers can have a short Christmas lunch together. Please text Mrs. Jay-Turner if you’d like to volunteer some time! 512.653.2323

We still have a few Christmas cards left for sale! All Christmas cards were created by TREA students and all purchases support The Rock Education Alliance–our nonprofit that supports our TREA families by providing scholarships for our families in need! For more information, go to our Holiday Cards page!

Have a wonderful week!
