Odds and Ends

REMINDERS:

* Please plan to come out and watch the annual Fenton Quadrant Braggin' Rights basketball game tomorrow night at RSHS. This is an opportunity to cheer on Mrs. Thorne, Ms. Harrick, Mrs. Gilbert, Mrs. Lamatina, Miss Bowen, Mrs. S. Owens, Mrs. Ziegler and Mrs. Clark as they represent UV on the elementary team! The game starts at 7:00 p.m. In addition, Watch DOGS will be sponsoring a Turkey Festival before the game here at UV (5:00 -6:30) if you would like to check that out!


* Don’t forget to carry a pencil or pen with you when you leave your classrooms. There are many “thankful” signs with A LOT of messages, but a few do not have many. Take a few minutes over the next couple days to let your colleagues know why you are thankful for them.


* The progress report window closes at 4:00 pm on November 20th. They are due to administration on Monday, November 23rd. I will print the progress reports on November 23rd. Please send me your list of students that will need his/her progress report printed. They will go home on November 24th.
