Hi Reptile Families,
It's hard to believe we are getting close to the end of Quarter 1. I am so appreciative of all the support from all our families in helping to keep our campus safe. It takes all of us working together to make that happen.
We hope that each of you was able to stay safe during the recent storm and know that some of you have families/friends that may have been effected by the storm. The school district is working on a plan to show our support. We will send out more information as that plan develops further.
Thank you for the many families that joined us for Title I information meeting, PTO General Assembly, and Open House. We hope your family is able to join us for our annual Trunk or Treat event on October 28th.
Thank you for your continued support,

There will be no running club on October 31 due to costumes for the Character Parade. Students may not have more than 3 unexcused absences to stay in the Fun Run Club. Absences from school are excused.
Fine Arts Academies
Starting on Wednesday, October 26th, students will also be attending a Fine Arts Academy once a month. These 45 minute academies will enrich students' education and give them a deeper understanding of one aspect of the arts. Students chose from academies such as Acting, Dance, Clay & Ceramics, Papier-Mache, and Photography. Academies will meet eight times throughout the year and will present a culminating activity at our Extravaganza in April. We are looking forward to seeing our students' talent and creativity!
