No need for you to remember to buy candy for your trick-or-treaters, we will be putting together bundles of candy for you to hand out this Halloween to all the goblins and ghouls that visit your house with a special offer for new students. 

Please sign up on the kickwall with how many bundles of candy you would like to hand out. The bundles will be distributed to you 10/14 through 10/25 so you have them in plenty of time to hand out at your door!

Photo Release Form
We are in the process of updating our files, and collecting Photo/Video release forms for all of our students. If you have not already completed a Photo/Video release form in the past few weeks, please print and complete THIS PDF and return to Kyoshi or Amanda. If you have more than one student, you can list each of their names on the "Named above" line rather than fill out multiple consent forms. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
