11/11 Conferences Rescheduled for 11/13

Good afternoon,

In the interest of safety for our students, families, and teachers, parent teacher conferences for today (Monday, 11/11/19) are postponed.  We will make up these conferences on Wednesday, November 13th.  If you had an appointment for today, your appointment time will remain the same on Wednesday.  If that time will not work for you on Wednesday, please contact your child’s teacher to arrange an alternate conference time.

Again, there will be NO parent teacher conferences today and they will be made up on Wednesday 11/13/19.

Thank you,

Seth Woods

Heroes’ Day

Heroes’ Day is November 18th. We are celebrating veterans, grandparents and everyday heroes! The reason we combine these celebrations together is to make the day more inclusive for all families! K-2 is having an assembly from 9-9:30 and a classroom activity from 9:30-10. Families will also be able to visit the book fair. We would like all children to have a special adult visit on Heroes’ Day. It can be a grandparent, veteran, parent, family member or adult friend. All are welcome!

To prepare for Heroes’ Day, we made a Stars and Stripes quilt!

Each child made a square and we put the squares together to make a quilt.

Logan, a parent, decorated our door and it looks awesome!
