Fall Festival - Saturday, October 27th

We look forward to seeing you at our Fall Festival tomorrow morning! It will be held from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. This is a fantastic family event full of wonderful and safe family fun! Children are welcome to wear costumes to this event if they want.


Enjoy carnival style games, cake walk, visit from the Fire Department, face painting, snacks, and much more! This is a completely free event for all families. We appreciate any donations of candy, small prizes, cakes/baked goods for cake walk, and any donations for our raffle table. Raffle tickets will be sold for $2/ticket - cash only please. We will also have Kona Ice available for sale.


We are still accepting candy and baked goods donations.


We hope that everyone plans to attend this fun day, and we appreciate your support with your donations!


As a reminder, students will not be permitted to wear costumes to school on October 31st.

Fall Fundraiser Delivery

Our fundraiser products will be delivered Thursday, November 15th. Please mark your calendar and plan to pick up your items that day. Thank you again for your support!

Original Works Orders Due 11/5

As a reminder, your student has brought home their Original Works project and order form. These make great holiday gifts for family and friends! What grandparent does not want a coffee mug, pot holders, etc. with their little person's artwork?? You are able to order many different types of items with your child's work on it - including mugs, coasters, ornaments, cards, and much more! These make great holiday gifts for friends and family! Orders will be due by Monday, November 5th and will be back in time for the holidays. Please leave your child's artwork in the package when you return it.

Friday Lunch Order Forms

Students will bring home Friday lunch order forms today for November lunches. We just realized that there is a small error on the form, as the dates are listed for the "week of." The lunches are still served on Friday each week.


We are also excited to announce that we are trying a new vendor this month. Dickey's Barbeque will be added as an option and will be available for next Friday's lunch. Lunch orders are due by Wednesday, October 31st at 10:00 a.m.

Parenting Resources - Halloween Safety

Halloween is next Wednesday, October 31st. Many children will be doing plenty of activities to celebrate, and we want to help make sure that their safety is our #1 priority! We hope that you will join us at our safe Fall Festival tomorrow!
