PTO's FAMILY READING NIGHT

Our first Family Reading Night was a hit! The event was well attended, informative, and lots of fun for all. Special thanks to Ms. Alfreda Moore and her wonderful crew of PTO volunteers, staff members who came out to give their support, and to special guests Ms. Belinda Manning and Ms. Karen Johnson. Staff members are encouraged to reach out to our PTO- we're all in this together. :)

MORNING DROP-OFF

We are exploring the possibility of creating a drop-off lane which would extend from Leeds Ave through the back of the building and back out to the street to alleviate the morning traffic. To that end, there might be workers on the grounds in the coming weeks surveying the area.

CHERRYDALE FUNDRAISER CONTINUES THROUGH OCT. 15TH

Please remind your students to sell, sell, sell!

PARADE OF HEROES- GRADES PK-2 OCT. 30th

Get your creative juices flowing, staff! Who's going to give Ms. Khullar a run for her money this year?

On a more serious note, please encourage your students to choose costumes with positive themes, and to leave any questionable accessories at home.
