What's up in D121?

Open House 6:00-7:30

I look forward to seeing as many of you tomorrow night as possible! At 6:00 there will be a brief meeting about technology in the media center. Then you are welcome to wonder down towards the classroom. There will be a scavenger hunt for you and your child to complete together all about our classroom. We also have a created masterpiece on the IPad they will be excited to share.


We will offer 1 large slice (pepperoni or cheese) served hot with a bottled water for $3.00 and we will also offer family size cold pizzas for families to purchase to take home. A family sized pepperoni will be $11.00 and a family sized cheese will be $10.00. THEY WILL DONATE 40% of sales to India Hook.

**Remember NO SCHOOL October 26th and 29th!**
