Dear Parents,

Thank you for a great short week! It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the first semester.  Report Cards will go out electronically next Friday, October 25, and we also have early dismissal at 1:15/1:30 pm.

Next week will be very busy with all of the Halloween activities and the Carnival on Friday. Special thanks to all of the PLUS volunteers for all of their hard work organizing the Take-a-chance baskets, ticket sales, and Halloween Carnival booths. 

Thank you for all your support! Have a wonderful weekend! 

Blessings, 
Dr. Kathleen Cox
