Dear Crusader Families,

It's hard to believe that we are half way through October!

Just a friendly reminder that the Parent Perspectives Survey will close on Friday, October 22. If you have not had a chance to complete the survey, please do so before Friday. We greatly appreciate your thoughts and insight!

If there are any questions, please contact the school office.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.

Every Friday in October, the students may wear Pink to show their solidarity for all who have struggled with this form of cancer.

If the students do not have anything Pink, then they can wear their Spirit Wear items or school uniform.

Possible Supply Shortage

The supply and demand situation could, possibly, affect the lunch program. There may be a time where the shipments do not come in and/or they are short on supplies. If this is the case, there may be a time during the school year where a brown bag lunch would need to be packed.

At this time, all is normal with the lunch program. We just want to stay transparent with our families.
