Don't forget that there is NO SCHOOL TOMORROW! Also, we look so forward to seeing all of our parents here next week for Parent/Teacher Conferences!

We hope you all can make it tomorrow night for our GRE Movie Night! Bring your chairs, blankets and whatever you need to be cozy while we watch a movie under the stars. We will get started at 6:30 and start the movie at dark. Feel free to bring snacks for your family. We will not have food trucks this year but will have some snacks for purchase by our PTO. We are still needing volunteers to make this event fabulous! Please consider clicking on the link to help out: Movie Night Sign-Up

2nd grade had a visit from Basehor City Hall and some high school students. Their project was designing a park! They were given a budget and a price list for each item and they had to determine the design of their park while staying in their budget of $99. They picked out the items for their park, paid for the park at the bank ran by City Hall and then drew their parks! So much fun had by all!

Red Ribbon Week is coming up Oct 24-28 so start planning your fun attire for the week!
