Penguins, Reindeer, and Wreaths Plus Canned Food Drive and Ukes



Rieley brought a seasonally appropriate book (The Polar Express) and a holiday-themed snack to school.

The snack consisted of penguins, reindeer, and wreaths:


A tasty little fellow....

Petey and Rudolph

the green wreath tastes something like a rice krispy treat
The principal, Mrs. Wilding, asked me to remind you here about our school's holiday canned food drive. The food will be donated to local food banks to serve the needy. Canned soup, canned beans, you know—hearty, easy-to-prepare, just warm it on up and chomp it on down—good food with a long shelf life.

The uke jar is beginning to bring in some money. It won't be too long, I hope, before I can make my first trip into People's Music for another classroom uke.

If you wish to donate a check or gift certificate, please use People's Music in Sebastopol. They know (and care about) ukuleles and are the most experienced and helpful store I know for getting ukes into classrooms. Ask for Bo. But Chris can help you, too.

Hi, Lynola. Two olives, a toothpick, carrot slice for foot, cream cheese. The beak is a little shaving of carrot.

Mr Gurney, do you want me to write a check out to Peoples Music instead of the one I left for you the other day?? Shari Moore

Hey, Shari-- not it's okay either way. I just thought some would prefer to have their check apply straight to the store. If you're okay with it made out to me, so I am.
