Happy Fall!

We have several days of early dismissal for parent teacher conferences and a few days where we have no school at all this month. So please check the important dates section above and mark your calendars. We look forward to formally partnering with you during parent-teacher conferences at the end of this month. Information will be shared that will hopefully provide some insight for you on what your students have been learning thus far, as well as goals for them to achieve by the end of the year. Be sure to ask questions, and we hope to see you on one of those evenings!

What used to be Red Ribbon Week is now Unity Week celebrating kindness and respect for differences! The following theme days are happening the week of October 21-24th: Monday 10/21 It's OK to be different-wear mismatched clothes; 10/22 Caps for Connections-wear your favorite hat; 10/23 Unity Day-wear orange; 10/24 We are all on the same team! Wear spirit wear or your favorite team apparel.

Individual classrooms celebrate Halloween with a little party before our parade at 2:20 pm. Weather permitting we will parade around the building in our Halloween costumes. Please remember to save anything resembling a weapon and gory/scary costumes for trick-or-treating in the evening! Our goal is to have fun rather than scare any of our younger students. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call.


Warmest,
Ms. Derricks
