Dear Parents,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

There will be no school this coming Friday, October 24th, since we are having our Student Led Conferences. In your child’s folder this MONDAY, Oct. 20th, I will be sending you the time to come to your conference. If you have any questions or problems, please contact me, so we can meet at another time.

All the parents are invited to stay and partake in the annual U.N. Day celebrations here at school starting at 8:30 a.m, on Wednesday, Oct. 29. This is a very fun and exciting day for all, where parents and children get together to learn about new cultures. The grade 1 students created a U.N. cartoon and wrote an informational piece about what they learned about the United Nations. They are displayed in the office, make sure to stop by and check it out. This is also a half day. All students will be going home at 11:45 a.m.

Your child must also be ready to present his/her costume and book to the class. Lower elementary will be having a costume parade starting at 8:15. We will also be Trick o treating on this day around our area. Each child needs to bring in one bag of candy. You can choose any hard or soft candy, chocolates, gummy bears, lollipops etc. but they need to come INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED.
