Due to some issues with the beads used for the new passes, there's been a delay in the creation of all of the passes for the classrooms.
2 bathroom passes will be handed out to each class on Monday morning. The bathroom passes will be on blue strings and have the name of the class in beads.
There are not yet bathroom passes for music and sustainability, but they should be coming shortly once some more beads arrive.
2 non-bathroom passes for the hallways will be given to each class soon. The non-bathroom passes will have the classroom name and be on brown laces.
Staff Happy Hour
Monday, April 18th, 5-7pm
733 Fulton Street
We will go to Black Forest on Fulton around 5:00 PM. Partners/significant others/kids are invited as well.
Spirit Week is Coming
Kids are voting on themes for Spirit Week at lunch time on Monday. Some of the themes to vote on are costume day, favorite color day, dress up (fancy) day, career day, and pajama day. By Tuesday, we will let you know the final themes so that you can help kids with costumes and begin planning your own outfits.
During exploration this week, it would be great to set up a "Spirit Week Crafting" station so that kids can make theme-related outfits and/or accessories. We will gather some materials to have available to classes once the themes are decided and distribute as well.
During Spirit Week, kids are not required to wear Compass shirts, but are still required to have appropriate footwear and wear clothing choices that allow movement.
