Hello CBA Families!


Happy October! The month of October brings a lot of amazing events and activities for our students and families. Be sure to review the October calendar below to stay up to date.


I wanted to take a minute to spotlight one of our favorite events of the year.... the Parade of Pumpkins, benefiting Bringing Home Home! Our 3rd grade students take the lead, and put together a spooktacular event for our entire school community. We will need your help! We ask that each family purchase a pumpkin from our 3rd grade students, carve it into a jack-o-lantern, and return it to school on Friday 10/15, to be displayed in the pumpkin parade! Families are invited to attend, enjoy some treats and help support an amazing, local organization, Bringing Hope Home. The event runs from 5:30 to 8:30pm on 10/15. We look forward to our first get together in a long time!

The Cardboard Box Challenge, and National Day of Play are also highly anticipated events in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. Inspired by Caine's Arcade, and Imagination.org, students are challenged to bring their imaginations to life, using cardboard! We have seen pinball games, claw games, furniture, makeshift libraries, and more! The students always blow us away with their creations.


Also coming up this month are Parent/Teacher conferences. They are being held on Tuesday, 10/5, and Thursday, 10/7. These early conferences are designed to help us learn more about your child, and are an opportunity for us to set goals for the first trimester. We hope that you are able to attend. You should have received an email from your child's teacher, with a link to sign up.


As a reminder, school is closed on Monday, 10/11, for a professional development day.


Thank you for another amazing week at CBA!
