HIGH SCHOOL CHOICE PRINCIPAL’S COFFEES
The last Principal’s Coffee to discuss the High School Choice Process with 8th Grade parents will take place on 10/17 at 9:00 AM in the library. If you are able to attend and haven’t yet attended one of the last two coffees on this topic, please join us.
1/2 DAY OF SCHOOL ON THURSDAY, 10/18/18
Thursday, 10/18/18, is a half-day of school for teacher staff development. We will dismiss promptly at 11:30 AM.
There will be two Halloween dances in our cafe on Friday, 10/19/18. 4th and 5th graders will have their dance from 2:45–4:30 and 6th–8th graders will have their dance from 6:30–9:00. If 4th and 5th graders are wearing costumes to the dance, they cannot wear them to school during the day on Friday; they need to change at the end of the day. Please ensure all costumes worn in school for the dance are school-appropriate and safe (i.e. please leave sharp objects that might accompany costumes at home!).
