Parent Newsletter 10/28/19

Welcome to term 2! Thank you for your support at our parent conferences. Your students are amazing and we LOVE having them at school with us each day.  

Halloween Parade & Class Parties, October 31stWe will continue our tradition of a costume parade in the school. The Halloween parade will be at approximately 9:15am. We kindly ask parents to line the gym/lunchroom and the main hallways as we will parade around the school for each other. Please note that students will be lining the hallways around the pods and their classroom doors to watch their peers as well. It does get a little cramped for space during this time so your patience is appreciated. As a reminder, no bloody, gross, disgusting costumes, or anything that displays violence, such as guns, knives, etc.  Also, no masks at all, not during the parade or at any time during the day.  Faces may be painted, but again, nothing bloody or gory.  Class parties will be scheduled through individual teachers and PTO Room Parents. If you have questions/concerns please contact your child’s teacher. 

Lost & Found: We encourage you to come check out the lost and found for any coats/jackets/lunch boxes, etc. that may be missing from your home. All unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the week. 

Expressions entries are due by November 4th. There are still entry packets available in the office.  There will be a participant party for all entries on November 15th. 

Thanksgiving Food Drive 11/4-8:  Tabitha’s Way has reached out and asked us to participate in their annual Thanksgiving basket food drive. The Salem area elementary schools have been tasked with collecting canned pumpkin and canned sweet potatoes. This collection will take place  Nov. 4-8 and will be a direct benefit to families in our own community. Your support is greatly appreciated. 

Book Fair Event: Nov. 18-22, watch for more information. Our parents and pastries event will be on 11/20 for your planning purposes.
