The Coyote Trail

All you need to know to find your way this week

Coyote Sighting!

I love getting to see our students show off their talents outside of school. This weekend was Celebrate the Arts and our Coyotes represented our school well. Our district choir members had a long practice day Friday and ended with an amazing show. The show also included our very own Mrs. To'Afa and her husband. Many, many students had art pieces chosen to be displayed all over the cafeteria. It was great to see our students work being celebrated. We also had a great third grade performance this week. The students worked hard to show their talent to their parents and family. I am always impressed by these presentations.

I want to give a great big shout out to Mrs. To'Afa, Mrs. Wilson and everyone else involved for their hard work in getting these events ready for our students and making the fine arts on our campus top notch! Please let them know how much you appreciate their hard work as well.

Circ de Relay~ Under the Big Top is this year's Relay for Life theme. This event is about remembering, honoring and celebrating those who's lives have been touched by cancer. Several of you have already joined the team. If you have not, please visit this link and join. The site is easy to use and fundraising is easy. I will be the team captain and organize our team activities and events. I would like to meet Tuesday after school for a quick discussion about fundraising ideas and dates. Thanks.

Dr. Truncale has asked that in lieu of a celebration party for her new position, that you would join the Relay team. I promise it will be a great time for everyone!

A few random reminders...

1. The Carnival tickets are on sale. $5 now or $6 at the door on Friday, April 10th. Please share this information with your parents. Also, make sure to work on gathering items for your class baskets.

2. Please clear the area in front of your lockers. We will be having a drill soon and you will need that space. This would be a good time to remind students of safety drill procedures.

3. Smile! It makes the world a better place. I love you all and I hope you have a great week!
