SUPPORT FOR VETERANS
In honor of our veterans, we will be having an additional dress down day on Monday, November 11, 2019. All funds collected will be donated to Wreaths Across America, a non-profit organization that organizes the wreath laying at our Veterans' cemeteries across the nation. Our monies will be used to purchase wreaths to be placed at the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly.
This $1 dress down donation was not included in the yearly payment. Please send in $1, or more if you would like, with your child on Monday, November 11th. Additional donations may be dropped off in the office.
Thank you for helping us honor the memories of our heroes. Power of the Pack!
Did You Know...
Administration "Fun Facts":
- Ms. Kildee was born in Wales and immigrated to the U.S. when she was five. Upon arrival in Detroit she was most disappointed that she didn't see any cowboys and Indians (the only thing she knew about America)!
- Mr. Kander was a track star in high school, and even received a Varsity letter in his freshman year!
- Mrs. Potteiger has moved 12 times in her life and lived in five states!
- Ms. Burns adopted a two day old bobcat when she lived in Montana (and named it Montana); the bobcat was part of the Burns family for 10 years!
Happy Number Sense November! Check out the math calendar below! I am currently looking for parents or grandparents to share with our Huskies how they use math in their jobs. If you are interested in sharing, please contact Jen Potteiger at email@example.com.
