Please don't forget our conferences scheduled for next week. I will be sending home the conference schedule as a reminder of your conference day and time.

Please Note: I have a conflict on Monday, so if you have a Monday conference, I will be in contact with you to reschedule. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

AdvanceED Survey

I am sending a survey home today in the SOAR folder. Please fill it out and send it back as soon as possible. This is in preparation for our AdvanceEd visit this January. Thanks so much for doing this

Kindergarten Bake Sale

Kindergarten is hosting several bake sales. Please consider supporting these bake sales by sending in items to sell or purchasing bake sale items. All proceeds go directly to the kindergarten team to help defer the cost of our next field trip.

Items to sell: If you would like to send in baked items to sell, prepackaged, store-bought items (like Little Debbie snack cakes) are very popular.

Dates of Bake Sale:

  • Friday, October 16th
  • Friday, October 23rd

Every item will be .50

If you would like to help out with the Bake Sale, please let me know
