WEB Update

The October WEB lesson focused on our ability to work with others. Most of the time we do not get to pick the people we are asked to work with, play with or even live with. Having an understanding of how what you do and what you say impacts those around you drove our activities and discussions this month and helped 6th graders understand how important each member of a group truly is.

Fundraiser Update

The deadline for the school Fall Fundraiser has been extended to Monday, October 31. Every item purchased helps us reach our goal of $30,000 sales with the profit going towards supporting field trips and upgrading our auditorium by purchasing a drop down screen and projector and seating upgrade. Last year $6,500 was raised towards the projector and screen. This is a long-term project that will be done in stages.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
