Please write your name on your cans and send them in to your teacher by Thursday, October 13. Thank you!

Art Room
Got extra newspaper and/or unique items like bottle caps that may be used for art projects? Bring them to our Art Room #22. Have some spare time a couple of times per month to help in the Art Room? Stop by Room 22 and see Ms. Vorce to sign up!

It's Time for Annual Giving
Please make your fully tax deductible donation now to cover the cost of this year's programs. You can pay  online, drop off a check in the office with this form, or set up a monthly payment plan of $100 per student. Most large companies match donations. Ask your HR Department.

Sign up for Ralph's - again! All Ralph's charity sign-ups expired September 1. Please re-enroll online here. It won't cost you anything, except a few moments of your time. Last year with very few families participating, we raised almost $3,000. Imagine what we could raise if everyone signed up! Thank you!

Parking Lot Rules  
* No unattended parking in any of the three parking lanes from 2:00 - 3:00pm. 
* All three parking lanes are for immediate pick up only. 
* Stay in your car until your child comes out.
* Inform your child to come directly to the front of the school for 
pick up.
* If you go inside the school, park on the street or in the market parking  lot.
*The outermost drive through lane (the lane closest to the street) is for drive through only. Parking, waiting, or dropping off is never permissible in the drive through lane.
