We are thankful for our families this month and all throughout the school year! One of the best ways to bring people together is through a meal. We invite you to join us for our annual Thanksgiving meal on November 15. If you choose to join us, please come during your child's assigned lunch time. Adults will be $4.50 and children are $2.50. Our cafeteria requests exact money. We do not have the ability to accept debit or credit cards. Please contact 381-3544 to RSVP the number attending. We hope to see you there!

We also want to remind families that if you are changing transportation for your student, we must have a written note to authorize the change. If you are a Car Rider Parent, you must pick up students in the Car Rider line each afternoon. We will not call students to the office, as this disrupts our dismissal procedure and causes last minute changes to our dismissal manifests. It is our goal to get your child home safely and we depend on accurate manifests to ensure their safe arrival home. If you have an appointment or situation that causes you to need your student (no matter the dismissal type) prior to 3:15 pm, please let us know ahead of time and we will help make arrangements for you. Thank you for your understanding!

We hope to see our families on Thursday, November 8 from 5:00 - 6:30 pm for Build A Book Buddy night! This was a great event last year and we are excited to offer it again. The Book Fair will be open and light snacks will be available.

Did You Know?
 Our Spanish Immersion students and teachers have been studying the traditional Latin American observance of “The Day of the Dead”.

“The Day of the Dead” is an important Latin American celebration, on November 1, to recall the departed loved ones in a happy environment. People create altars with their departed loved ones´ favorite food and things; decorate their tombs and gather together to celebrate.
