Week of October 15th

Happy Fall!  It finally feels a little less like summer and a little more like fall!  With the fluctuating weather patterns, you may want to consider sending your child to school with a sweatshirt or light jacket each day.  Our recess time is in the morning, so can often be chilly.

This week is Conference week.  I’m looking forward to meeting with you to discuss the progress your child has made thus far.  Due to conferences, school will dismiss at 12:30pm each day.  If you have alternate dismissal plans, please send a note in writing.
