Stone Soup- Friday, November 17 First graders will spend time in November listening to several versions of the story Stone Soup. Students then have the opportunity to bring something to contribute to our community soup.   A letter explaining the activity and asking for parent help will be coming home shortly.   We will need a few parents to assemble the soup (open cans, dice vegetables…) @8:15 that morning and another group of parents @1:15 to set tables, serve soup, and help clean up.  This has become an annual first grade tradition here at Roper and we hope you’ll consider helping us celebrate.
