Sunday Night Memo, 12/2

December 2, 2018

Happy December!  The newly acquired advent calendar allows Charlotte to remind us of how many days are left until Christmas.  More importantly for us, we are in the 3 week stretch until we get to winter break!  I hope you find time to breath and take a minute for yourself as the days will begin to fly.

Today was a brisk, sometimes cloudy yet beautiful day for the PTO’s Webster Holiday House Tour.  I don’t have final numbers but judging from the lines at the house I was at this morning, there were a ton of people who came through the tour.  THANK YOU to all the teachers who carved out time today to serve as a house host at the Siebert’s home.  It is much appreciated! 

Self Care Monday, 12/3
On Monday we will meet in the library with time set aside to organize yourself for the holidays.  Would you like to share some of your favorite recipes with your Hixson Family? Bring them!  Do you need to write out your holiday cards? Bring them!  Do you want to get some gifts wrapped? Bring them (and your wrapping paper)! See you then!  Oh and don't forget to bring your holiday cheer!

Retirement Session w/Lanita, 12/3
On Monday, Lanita and Carl from HR, along with a financial rep will be in the faculty lounge from 2:30-4:00pm to meet with anyone with questions about retirement.

Lion’s Choice Fundraiser, 12/6
The monthly Lion’s Choice Fundraiser will be on Thursday, 12/6 from 4-8pm.  Stop by and grab dinner for yourself or family and tell them you are supporting Hixson Middle School.  We get back 20% which supports student activities, teacher supplies, etc.

Hixson Choir Tour, 12/7

Hour of Code, 12/21
