Looking ahead

We will be celebrating Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights. Our students will hear stories and participate in crafts as a school.

Wednesday, October 30 is our second session of the Nutrition Series. Please email Jainnie Hackman to let her know you'll be coming. We would love to have at least 10 parents attend on a weekly basis. If we cannot guarantee 10 participants for each session, our facilitator will need to cancel the series prematurely. Invite family members and friends to attend with you!

Thursday, October 31 is our annual Harvest Costume Parade which starts at 9AM at the main entrance. A letter was sent home detailing the route we will be taking. Please make sure you send back the permission slip. The PTA will also be holding a Bake Sale during that time so please be sure to have cash with you. Help support our community while enjoying delicious treats!

Thank you for your patience as we solidified the Class Parent list. You should be hearing from your Class Parents this week. Have a great week!
