In the Know!

The smile fund is pretty low, we only have around 10 out of 30 staff that has paid. The envelope is in my mailbox, please write your name on the back so I know who paid. $20 for teachers and $10 for paras and office staff or whatever you can do. You can write a check just make it payable to me and I will cash it at lunch and put it back in there.

If you want to eat lunch outside we now have picnic tables under the pavilion!!! If you go out take a walkie in case you are needed or have a phone call, etc.

Don't forget about the adult bonfire at Jen McRae's house on Oct. 22nd at 6pm.

We need help at 12:55 bring students in.

Something To Quack About....

Jamey- We appreciate the example you are setting for our students. Mrs. McRae's class said that if you are in their room when they are saying the Pledge, you stop what you are doing and says it with them. Thanks for helping show respect to the kids.

Holly- Thanks for stepping in and taking on your class while Amanda is out! You are doing an excellent job!

Danielle- You are doing wonderful. You are dealing well with some challenging parents and students. You are a great addition to our team.

Guess Who, What or Where?
