A Message from the Principal
Let the fun begin! The Red Eagle is so excited to kick off this weekend of "scares" with you at our BOO BASH!!! I hope to see you this evening for some fun. Thank you, Christy Gernhofer, the Boo Bash committee and the APT for your hard work putting this spooktacular evening together. I hope you spend some extra time with your families this weekend.

We are excited to bring back costumes and our Halloween parade on Monday, October 31 at 9:45am. Students will be doing a loop around the field and showing off their amazing costumes. We hope you will join us! Please remember these costume parameters::
No gore or blood
Children must be able to sit down
Costumes must not be distracting to learning (we reserve the right to ask a child to take off a costume if it is districting the learning of themselves or others)
All fall school pictures taken are now available for families to view online.
Last chance to choose your Yearbook/Composite Class Picture
Families - View your School Portraits, and select your yearbook/class picture* before the deadline:
To view your school portraits look for an email sent to you by “Visual Image Photography”, or go to vipis.com (student ID number may be required)
Selection Deadline: 11/3/2022
After the final deadline, VIP will choose a yearbook image for you.
There is no deadline to order pictures. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Absenteeism and Tardies
Be on the lookout for an email coming soon to let you know your child's number of days absent and tardy compared to the grade level average. As attendance at school is directly correlated with academic success, this is a priority for me. Please also note that students need to be in their seats by 8:00am so consider arriving at least by 7:55am to ensure they are not being marked tardy. Thank you!

- It's getting chilly so don't forget your warmer jackets, hats and mittens
