Outdoor Ed.- Always an enriching experience for our students...

We could not have had two better days of weather for our 5th graders enjoyed time on the shores of Lake Geneva, at Covenant Harbor Camp. A huge "THANK YOU" to Lesley and Melody for their planning and preparation time, to make sure that all went well. Brian also helped to keep things run smoothly while our students took part in many "firsts," such as sleeping away from home and family, fishing, archery, S'mores bonfire, and climbing on the high ropes course. Our parent chaperones were also incredibly upbeat during the long days and night, and I think had as much fun as the kids. ;)

Remember- we are not following the regular PLC schedule this week.

Preschool Screening at Edgewood on Tuesday, Oct. 13

On Tuesday, preschool screening will be taking place on the lower level, just outside Martha and Sonia's rooms. Room 17 will also be in use. The parents bringing in their little ones will enter the building through the courtyard doors.

It will help greatly if all student "traffic" moving from the upper level to the lower level occurred only on the north staircase. (Lori- you can still bring your students in through the courtyard doors.) Please avoid using the center stairwell. The only exception will be for small groups of students with adults going to Room 9, and staff going to the Lounge. I will post signs as a reminder. Thank you for your help!
