We're back into the full swing of things after a very relaxing MEA break! I've got several things to mention on this windy Tuesday!
Musical Instrument Family Project: I've had a couple questions about the instrument project. You are actually meant to build an instrument with your child. Please don't feel obligated to go out and buy materials--use whatever you have around the house! I've had students build drums, shakers, guitars, and xylophones before. Please help your child be creative with materials you already have at home!
Book Orders: October book orders are due this Friday! Please submit your online orders OR send in your order form with a check by Friday so I can submit the order over the weekend.
Marathon Service Project: On Friday, we will be cleaning the pews and straightening up the church from 1:00-2:00. If you are available to volunteer, please email me. PLEASE NOTE: you must have completed Virtus training in order to volunteer for this event!
Halloween: Halloween is already next Tuesday! Students are invited to bring their Halloween costumes to school on Tuesday. They MAY NOT wear the costume TO school--we will change into them before the party! They CAN wear black and orange to school on Halloween until they put their costumes on. They may also not have any weapons or gory costumes. The party will be 1:00-2:00 in the PAC. I am going to play this event by ear--it is a lot of kids and a lot of energy! If we are burning out or getting too rowdy/antsy, we do not have to stay the whole time. I will have them change back out of the costumes before they go home; I don't want anything to get ruined or spilled on during the commute back home! Parents are welcome to come but, as per Mrs. Doyle's request, you MUST be in costume! :) Please check in at the front desk if you come for the party. PLEASE DO NOT SEND HALLOWEEN CANDY TO SCHOOL. Thank you for your understanding :)
Winter Weather:It is getting cold! Please make sure your children are dressed appropriately for the weather. Coats, hats, and mittens are going to be necessary very soon, so it might be a good habit to send them to school with them every day to get them used to it, even if they might not wear them outside to recess.
School Pictures:We will be taking our school pictures next Thursday, November 2. Students may be out of uniform for picture day.
That was alot of info! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
