This Month's Menu:
We've had several events since the last newsletter, the Sport-A-Thon was held on Friday, October 5th where over $10,000 was raised to support our programs for students! Through these donation dollars we are able to bring assemblies into the school. Our first and most recent took place on October 17th. We had a performance by "The Zaniac". He performed science tricks and talked about science concepts with our students; we even had a special dance performance by our new Superintendent, Dr. Mary Templeton. The Halloween Hop was Friday, October 26 - it was great to see families coming together for a fun evening. So, here we are at Parent-Teacher Conferences the end of October! This month has flown by! We're looking forward to what November holds with our first musical performance under the direction of Dr. Frank Zahn. The fifth grade classes will be performing to honor our Veterans on Friday, November 9th. I have included important dates for the month of November in this newsletter. As other news and events arise throughout the month, I will keep you updated through Skyward. This seems like the perfect month to let you know how thankful I am for our students, families and the Gause staff!
