From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

Thank you to all who volunteered at our Halloween parties, made donations, came for our parade, and helped your children pick out costumes! I know the weather wasn't ideal for the outdoor parade, but we were glad we made it happen so you could join us. For those that weren't able to be there, here is a video of the parade courtesy of Mrs. Ignoffo. We had a wonderful time celebrating Halloween!


Our lunch room is still in need of supervisors and they also need additional kitchen staff. If you are interested in part-time employment during the school day, this could be the position for you! Please contact Patricia Burton at 331-228-5242 or patricia.burton@d303.org for more information.


We are in need of clothing donations for the nurses office. Please sign up here if you are able to donate any boys clothing.


Frindle books and bookmarks came home yesterday for One School One Book. Each family should have received one copy of the book. If you received an extra, please send it back to school. If your family did not receive a copy, please let us know. We will be sure to get you one! Check out the flyer below for the details. Also, be on the lookout for an email with links to guest readers. Ferson staff members will be sharing recorded chapters of Frindle throughout the next three weeks.


Have a wonderful weekend!
