Did you know...

In our nation, Texas has five of the 10 fastest-growing cities? These cities are: Conroe, Frisco, McKinney, Georgetown, and New Braunfels.

Treats, not tricks...

Why didn't the ghost go to the Halloween party? Because he didn't have any body to go with him.

Why do mummies have trouble keeping friends? Because they're so wrapped up in themselves.

What kind of mistakes do ghosts make? Boo-boos.


Tongue Twister:

I wish to wish the wish you wish to wish,

But if you wish the wish the witch wishes,

I won't wish the wish you wish to wish.


Riddle: If you peel my skin off, I won't cry, but you will. What am I?

Answer: An onion


Hope everyone has a great week and a Happy Halloween! Just think, October 31st will be on a Saturday in 2020. Hang in there teachers...

Friendly Reminder

If your student is bringing home a school issued laptop (should only be grades 7-12), please make sure you have paid off their insurance.

Please be sure your student is returning library/teacher books or paying for books they have damaged. Taking care of their obligations allows the library to repurchase the book so others may enjoy them as well. (And they are needed for school assignments!)
