OCTOBER LUNCH MENU

LOST & FOUND

Is your student missing a jacket or other item? Please check our Lost & Found, which is by the back entrance to the gym, for their misplaced items. With the cold weather in the morning and the nice temperatures at recess, students are taking them off and forgetting them.

Did you know if you read just one book a day to your child, they will have been read 1,825 books by their 5th birthday? The more a child is read to in their early years, the better reader they become when they start school.

PICTURE RETAKES & CLASS GROUP PHOTOS

October 25 will be Lifetouch picture retakes and class group photos.

BOX TOPS

There will be a Box Top contest in October. Save your Box Tops and bring them to your teacher in October.
