This year, your child will have the
opportunity to be the “Gold Star of the Week”!
While your child is the Star, each day of
the week will consist of an exciting event
or activity to honor him or her and to help
us get to know our special classmate.
The star student will be given a special
poster the week before, and will bring this
poster (filled out and colored) on Monday to
start off his or her special week to share
with the class at Morning Meeting.
The star student will come prepared to show off their talent to the class! Talent can be shown in form of a live demonstration, a short video clip, or any type of item that proves their talent.
Parents, you will write a letter to the
class telling us how special your child is
to you. Send the letter in a sealed
envelope to school with your child, and I
will read the letter to the class at Morning
Meeting. The content of the letter is up to
you, but you may want to choose from one of
the following ideas: describe special or
funny stories about your child for the class
to hear, write a silly or serious poem about
your child, tell us some neat things we may
not know about your child, send silly or
special pictures with a letter describing
the pictures, or write a short story with
your child as the main character.
Please help your child collect up to 5
special items from home and send them to
school with your child on Thursday to share
with his or her classmates during Morning
Meeting. Try to encourage your child to
choose items that have some sort of meaning
rather than just a collection of toys.
The star student will be presented with a
friendship book created by his or her
classmates. The book will include the
Star’s picture, followed by pages of compliments by each member of our class.
I will let you know the week before it's
your child's week to be the Gold Star
so that you can help him/her
prepare. If you have any questions, please
don’t hesitate to ask. I hope your child
enjoys his/her special week!
Mrs. Gold and Ms. Brown
