WONDER MOVIE

Mrs. Schirmer and I just want to let you know about an upcoming opportunity. Many of your children have read the book Wonder. If they haven't yet, I highly recommend you read it with them. It contains so many powerful messages that our kids need to hear... And really, we adults need to be reminded of these messages too. You can watch the trailer here. The book has been turned into a movie. Mrs. Schirmer and I would love to invite you and your kids to watch Wonder with us at the AMC on Cobb Parkway on Saturday, December 2nd. Once times become available, we will send out an email, likely on Wednesday or Thursday. We look forward to seeing you!

JEKYLL ISLAND FIELD TRIP

This year 5th grade students will have the opportunity to go on a 3-day field trip to Jekyll Island in February. Students received information regarding this trip a few weeks ago. Please be sure to complete and return the forms along with the fees for the trip as soon as possible. Thank you.
