Jottings from late October and early November

Box Top and Label Contest

Our class took first place in the contest that took place school wide. We collected over 2,000 labels and receipts! We will be enjoying our root beer float party on Tuesday as a prize for winning this contest.

Outside Recess

All students will go outside every day. Please be sure your child is appropriately dressed for morning and noon recess. Wet feet and pants make for a very uncomfortable learning atmosphere.

Dragon Lunch Bunch (DLB)

DLB kicks off in November. This is a chance for students to pair up in small groups with a parent or community member every other week during a noontime book-club. This program runs November through March. DLB is short a few leaders. If you are able to help and could volunteer, please call the office.

Conference Time

Fall conferences are next week. Please take the time to look at the sign up sheet that is in the front hallway at Wagner near the office. If you haven't already signed up for a time and would like to do so, feel free to write a note in your child's planner with a few time slots that work for you. I can see if those times are still available and sign you up.
