Week 10- October 15th-19th

Dear Parents,

Hope everyone had a relaxing long weekend!
A few parents have told us that some of the pages in our blog do not open. We looked into the problem and think it is fixed. Please let us know if any further problems arise.
The annual Parent Luncheon will be held Friday, October 19th. This is a day when parents can join their child for lunch. Pre-order menus will be going home soon. This is a fun day for both parents and students and we hope to see you that day!
'Book Character Day' is not too far away. We would like to remind you that your child will be encouraged to come dressed like his/her favorite book character on Wednesday, October 31st and be ready to present his/her costume and book to the class. There is a link to 'Country Living' that shows how to make homemade costumes under the 'Links' heading for the parents who are thinking of making a costume.
The Seniors will be having a cash raffle during the U.N. Day celebration, Thursday, October 25th. The first place prize will be L5,000, second place will be L3,000 and third place will be L2,000. Tickets will be L50 and all the money raised will go towards the Seniors community service.
