December 2, 2014 - Winter concert date change included

Happy December,

The first thing I would like to call your attention to is a date change we made to the Winter Concert. We have changed the date and time to - THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2014 @ 6PM.

This is a K-6 concert so that means everyone is invited. Come a little early please. The kids need to be here at 5:45. It is likely the parking lot will be kind of full, so early is better than sliding in at 5:45.

This Saturday, December 6th, from 6pm to 8pm, is our Cash Raffle. If you bought a ticket or even if you didn't, please come to school for the drawing. The top prize is $2500, which should make someone's Christmas a little more exciting.

In a few short weeks, the students will be finishing the second quarter with assessments and projects. Before then, the intermediate students will be competing in the building level Spelling Bee (Dec. 12th at 1:30). and Geography Bee (Dec. 16th at 1:45). If your student is participating in either of them, it is okay (very okay) to help them prepare. Parents are also welcome to attend.

Hope to see you at our December events.

Doug Hayman
