Week of October 30th

Parents,

Wow, did it get cold this weekend!  I’m ready for fall, but I’m not ready for winter.  Hopefully the forecast I read today is correct and this week will be warmer than the weekend.  We had cute costumes on Friday! The students had so much fun showing off.  Here are a few pictures:
