Dear Parents,

     Buffalo Basket donations are now being accepted.  Oct. 23rd is the final day for those donations.  Our basket theme is family fun night.  Donations of board games, books, gift cards for movies or family fun restaurants would be perfect. Thank you so much for the generous donations we have received thus far.  Our basket is coming together beautifully!  Thank you so very much for your generosity.

Book - O - Ween is Friday, October 31. Students are invited to dress as a favorite storybook character that day as we celebrate our love of reading and books!  Please help your child choose an outfit to represent their character and to brink the book that matches their outfit to the parade.  Our parade will be at 8:30 A.M.  If there is a family that would like to donate a special treat for our after Book-O-Ween treat, please let me know.

Important Reminders:

Please sign your child's AR Tracking Sheet that is located in the plastic sleeve of your child's green take home folder. It is the first week for the 2ndst 9 weeks AR Goal.  Let's get off to a powerful start!

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. 

                                                                         

Helpful Hints:

Our lunch is every day from 12:08-12:33 in Cafeteria 1.

 PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you for all of your help and support. I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home!
