Impact Aid Form

Students are bringing home the Impact Aid form this week (look for a cream-colored form.) This information is the basis for payment to our school district of federal funds. All forms MUST BE SIGNED AND DATED by a parent or legal guardian. If a parent is in a uniformed service, the BRANCH OR SERVICE AND THE RANK are also required. Thank you for your prompt attention to this form!

Save the Date!

What: Grade 1-2 music concert. This concert series will be in honor of our fallen PWC police officers.

When: November 19, 2015. Grade 1 begins singing at 7:00pm. Grade 2 begins at 7:30pm. Second graders should meet their teachers in the classroom between 6:50-7:00p.m. If you arrive early, students must stay with you in the dining hall until 6:50p.m. This is a special night and we encourage all family members to come. Siblings must stay with parents.

Attire: Students may wear their nicest school uniform or a fancy outfit-no play clothes! Please avoid high heels as they can be dangerous while on the chorus riser steps.

Poem of the Month-October

Autumn Leaves Are Falling


Autumn leaves

Falling, falling

Autumn leaves are

Falling down.

Red and green,

Gold and brown,

Autumn leaves

On the ground.

Autumn leaves

Red and green,

Gold and brown

Falling all around.

Autumn leaves

Falling, falling

Autumn leaves are

Falling down.
