We are 1/4 through the school year!

Can you believe it? First semester is halfway over, meaning we are 1/4 of the way through the 2014-15 school year! This means you should be about 25% complete with your curriculum. First semester ends Thursday, January 28th.

In this edition:

  • Nov. Receipts due Dec. 1st
  • Writing Enrichment
  • Parent Facebook Page
  • Upcoming Event: Special Thanksgiving Study Hall 11/24
  • Upcoming Event: Parent Meeting 12/4

Please Turn In November Receipts by Dec. 1st!

Our accounts manager will be gone for most of December to be with her daughter and newborn granddaughter! If you want to receive reimbursement for November enrichment expenses in December, please get all receipts to Vicki no later than December 1st. Anything received after that date will not be processed until January.

Writing Enrichment

Because of icy weather Thursday, we cancelled our enrichment class. Next Thursday, 11/20, will be our third of four writing classes. Come join us in writing rough drafts of narratives!
