On Tuesday, November 1st, students in kindergarten through 3rd grade will be participating in Every Kid Votes, a nation-wide mock election to promote citizenship and provide students with a fun hands-on voting experience. For the past three elections, Every Kid Votes' mock election has predicted the outcome of the official election on November 8th! We are very excited to give students a chance to use a polling booth, send them home with an "I Voted" sticker, and teach lessons that help to explain the voting process and our right as citizens to take part.

Pumpkin Book Report Project Information will be sent home today in student folders. These projects are due on November 1st for third graders. Happy Fall!
