Week of November 27th, 2022
Dear Page Hilltop Families:
Our annual Page Hilltop Turkey Trot was the best ever! The weather was warmer than usual and we were able to use the fantastic new ASRHS track facility.
The morning began with Mr. O'Brien coordinating a "challenge race" involving all of the K-5 mile run qualifiers AND members of the high school cross-country team. What a great way to start the day! Thanks to the high school administrators & cross-country coaches for allowing the high school runners to join us. It is always great to have them involved with our students!
All of our fourth-grade students then put on a "Mini-Macy's Balloon Parade", which was a culminating project from their science lessons. The balloons were as creative as anything you'd see in the actual Macy's parade.
The rest of the morning was spent with students, staff, and parents walking together around the track. We were thrilled to see so many parents and family members in attendance!
This was another awesome Page Hilltop school - family event!
Thanks, as always, for sharing your children with us!

WINTER TRADITIONS AROUND THE WORLD
At this time we welcome our families to share with us some of the "winter traditions" that are celebrated in various countries. We are not specifically speaking about just holiday traditions.

WINTER CHORUS CONCERTS
If any of our parents are unable to attend the evening performance, due to work commitments and/or childcare responsibilities, they are welcome to attend the morning performance.
WHEN WILL THE FIRST SNOW ARRIVE?
If you lived in Buffalo, this question would have already been answered. We are starting to see the return of cooler temperatures and snow won't be too far behind.
When do YOU think the first significant snowfall will arrive? All PH students are invited to submit their guesses and enter the "Annual Page Hilltop Snow Guessing Contest". All the children need to do is send a note to Mr. Deppe, including their NAME, TEACHER & DATE of the first snowfall.
To be considered "significant snowfall", there must be at least 1" of snow on the ground.
ALL guesses must be submitted BEFORE this actual snowfall arrives.
TEACHERS GO ON A TURKEY HUNT
Next Meeting - Thursday, December 1st @ 7:00 pm.
