UMAC Newsletter- November 13, 2015

Dear UMAC Families,

On Wednesday, Woods Creek had a special Veteran’s Day Assembly. Our school invited veterans to be honored at a special assembly! Each grade level gave a short presentation, several veterans shared moments from their years of services, and Mr. Muehling led our school in a variety of patriotic songs. Our students were able to learn something new while giving thanks to our special guests. Please check out our Homeroom App for pictures!!

We’d also like to remind you that classroom donations for the winter surprise your children are making is due on Wednesday, November 18. Any donations are greatly appreciated!

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
