Conference Thank You!

Thank you to all the families who attended conferences. The positive home to school connection is critical to student success! Special thank you to the PTO for the delicious meals throughout conferences. We are so thankful to all who donated!

Office News!

We hope this newsletter finds you all well and looking forward to enjoying time together with family and friends for Thanksgiving. At Purdy, the Leadership trait we have been exploring is GRATITUDE. We have discussed how to show gratitude and thankfulness. Students have been sharing gratitude with others as well as writing cards to send to those they are thankful for.

The month of December brings us the leadership trait of RESPONSIBILITY! We will talk about what it means to be to be responsible (see below)!

Orchestra News!

Band and Orchestra News:

The first formal fifth grade band and orchestra concert is Thursday, December 15! The concert will begin promptly at 6pm at Fort Atkinson High School Auditorium. Students need to arrive at 5:45 and meet in the music pod. Dress is more formal: think dress pants or skirt and a collared shirt. A nice dress is fine as well. Please avoid athletic shoes, wear dress shoes if possible. This concert is separate from the winter sing and only involves band and orchestra students.

Safety Drill

Our safety drill was held on November 22nd and the students did outstanding. We discussed that this drill is one way we keep ourselves safe-above all else. Knowing where to go, listening to the teacher, and understanding options for safety is the most important.

Veterans Day

We had a wonderful tribute to our Veterans on November 11th.
