Hello Ghosts and Ghouls,

I had so much fun learning with you today!  There is no homework for any of the classes tonight, but I do want to make sure you are ready to roll tomorrow.

Social Studies:  Make sure you have Warm Up #11 and some colored pens or highlighters.  We are going to continue to work with the documents about the Treaty of Versailles, and I want to make sure you are able to make the best use of your time.

Math: Make sure you have your MSG and a colored pen, pencil, or highlighter.  Bring your dry erase marker too, if we have time we will practice on the desks and white boards.

Homeroom: We kicked off the THANKS FOR GIVING food drive today like champs!  Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity.  We are collecting non-perishable food items from now until November 15th, so please keep sending in what you can.  Your donations go directly to support local families, so this is a great way to support our wonderful community.

4th Block: Remember to get those COLOR BATTLE donations in!  The funds raised go directly to our school for technology and building advancements.  Thank you if you have already donated!  

See you tomorrow, kiddos.  Remember that Butterfinger candy bars are extremely “toxic” to young children.  You can bring them to me for safe “disposal.” 🙂
