Dear Parents,

I hope you have an opportunity to see the Winter Program tonight, it is going to be exciting. The schedule for the program is below. Special thanks to Ms. Bailey who has coordinated the activities. Please notice the wonderful headpieces that Room 16 is wearing. The Target Store at Westwood Village donated $50 to help with the purchase of these items. Thank you Target!

There has been a lot of maintenance activity in our building the past two weeks. The mold/mildew odor has subsided, but we are continuing to work with the district to totally eliminate it by January 3rd. I want to thank staff and parents for their support and contributions to our efforts to accelerate a solution. We are also looking into other avenues that may allow us to upgrade certain needy areas of our building in the near future.

The Arbor Heights' staff wishes everyone a joyous, safe holiday season. In this season of peace and love we want to extend to you and your loved ones, a year round gift of happiness and prosperity.

In the words of Mr. Wilkie, "Have an Awesome Winter Break".

Barry S. Dorsey

Winter Program
Tonight is the Winter Program. The first session (for students in Rooms 3, 4, 1, 19, 18, 14 and 16) will begin at 6:30. Students need to be in their classroom at 6:15. The second session (for students in the remaining classrooms) will begin at 7:30. Those students need to be in their classrooms at 7:15. Please see the invitation that went home last Monday, December 6th for more information. The students and staff have worked very hard to put this program together and we hope you will be able to attend.

A huge thank you to each and every student who made stars and birds for our Winter Program. Your creativity and enthusiasm have truly brought beauty and brightness to Arbor Heights this season. A special thanks to Debbie Taylor for paper, to 007 Keegan for the inspiration, to Nonny J for origami assistance and to Marie Mentor for help in hanging all our stars. A BIG thanks to the patient Lynn Barnicle-Moy for spending many hours at school teaching students (and staff) how to fold and heading the decorating committee. And, again, special thanks to Barbara Bailey, our talented music teacher, for her work to make this a memorable Winter Program.

Lost and Found
While at the Winter Program tonight, please take a moment to look through the Lost and Found closet in the front hall. As we have been announcing, all items left in the Lost and Found will be donated to a Homeless Shelter tomorrow, Friday, December 17th.
