Halloween Dress Up Day is on Friday, Nov. 1 and students are encouraged to get in the Halloween spirit by dressing up for the day. Please abide by the following guidelines:
* Weapons are not allowed.
* Masks can be worn during the parade but may not be worn in class.
* Blood and gore must be kept to a minimum.
* Costumes should not be a disruption to instruction.
Please join us on Friday the 1st for our annual Halloween Costume Parade. We will start at 9:10 on the blacktop. The staff is dressing in Disney theme.
Ms. Shelton's Boo Breakfast and Class Parties: The Boo Breakfast in Ms. Shelton's class will take place right after the costume parade. Please contact your child's teacher to find out about other class parties.
Ultra Fun Run: The fun run is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Please continue to work on pledges. The Bubble Run will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13th. We need volunteers to help with the run at 10:30 and with the Mega Jumpy Party from 12:30-2:30.
Parent Conference Week: Conference week is coming up. Conferences are scheduled for Nov. 18-22. School starts at 9:01 and ends at 1:15 all week, except Wednesday the 20th. Due to transportation issues, on Wednesday we will start at 10:00 and end at 1:15. We will still offer school lunch and have a regular lunch period. Your child's teacher will send home a conference sign up sheet.
Descanso Elementary AM/PM: We are looking forward to our flexible, fee based program. The program will start on November 4th. Ms. Elerie Stroud will join Mrs. Bryan in the after school program. This will help parents who are running late or stuck in town. We can send the students to the program for a $12 drop in fee or $5.00 per half hour. I would also like feedback on the fees, we may offer a low flat fee to encourage enrollment. Ask for an application if you are interested.
