Elf and Myself

Hello, St. Thomas More families! I want to take a chance to introduce Myself! I’m not really like all of the other elves who don’t like to be held or taken places,  NO, I’m making it your job to take me places and have a ton of fun with me. I want to do whatever you are doing for the evening and that could as little as homework and dinner with the family or maybe I'll be going home with you on a night that you are going to see my good buddy Santa at the mall. Whatever we do, we are going to write about it in my journal so all of Ms. Mulvey’s class knows about the very cool things we got to do the night before. We can even take an “Elfie” with your parents phone and send it in an email to Mrs. Mulvey, so she can print it and put it in the book. Now I know a lot of the parents are really busy this time of the year and I don’t want them to have to plan anything special for my trip to your house, but I do need them to take about 5-10 minutes to help us write out all the great things we did when I got to come spend the night with you. No Worries, Ms. Mulvey did and example Letter, so nobody gets confused! Also, I came from the North Pole with a schedule, so please don’t get mad at me or Ms. Mulvey if you have to wait patiently for your turn, There are a ton of you guys, so not everyone will have their turn before Christmas, BUT everyone will get a turn. Here’s the list and please remember that I can only travel in my red bag and all notes get written in the notebook for Ms. Mulvey to read to all of us after Jesse Tree every morning! I can’t wait to see where you all live and to see if you do anything special for Christmas that I have never seen.

  • No More shorts: Thursday November 1st.
  • Gloves and Hats: I really try to remind the students to put their gloves and hats in their sleeves when they take them off. That way when they put their coat on they automatically find them! Please remind them whenever you think about it to do this when they are not at school!
  • Halloween Candy: Please be sure that your child is not bringing a bunch of Halloween candy in their lunch.


Language Arts

Sight Words: Our old sight words are basically accomplished and almost everyone is getting the hang of bringing books home and reading with Mom, Dad, The Dog or The Frog and returning the “Book Buddy” bags the next day for a key! If your child brings home a reading bag, please be sure it comes back signed the very next school day, so they can get a key!


This is a list of our 2nd set of sight words. These will come home on cards after Thanksgiving break!
