Weekly Update -- November 3, 2017
Dear Parents,
It's been a busy week here in the media center. Father Kevin recently secured $8500 in donations for technology and we were able to purchase 2 class sets of OZOBOTS, a 3-D printer, and15 iPad mini's. We also bought 32 new Chrome books to replace our lab computers which will be distributed to the teachers and placed in classrooms. It's exciting to move forward in the area of technology.

Thank you to Mrs. Zilhaver who has embraced everything and is helping our students enjoy the changes to our media center. If you have any old legos, crafting items, or other gadgets (old phones, etc.) that you would like to donate please let Mrs. Z. know - we are trying to stock up our Maker Space.

Have a blessed weekend!
Mrs. Bogataj
I watched the first graders learning about coding while working with the OZOBOTS. It's pretty amazing to me how quickly they pick it up.
Updates and Reminders
**The December lunch menu is posted at the bottom of this message. We have tried to include classes that will miss lunch for various reasons but may have missed some. We were informed just this week about the 4th - 8th grade students missing lunch on Mon. Nov. 27th. If your child purchased lunch for that day please feel free to take a credit in December.

**We made it through another Festival. I am sure that the crummy weather on Saturday took a toll on our profit margin, but we are all hopeful for good results. When we have figures we will let you know. Thank you again to Michelle Kline and Jason Kramer for all of their time and efforts!!

**Parents of students in 3rd - 8th grade please take a moment to read the letter below that outlines a change to our handbook that will go into affect on Monday, Nov. 6th. The change is regarding students receiving 0's instead of 50's. Change to Handbook
