Week of October 16 – 20, 2017

The upcoming week promises to be a very busy one as we prepare for Fall Fest 2017: Saturday, October 21st, 11 – 3 pm!

I would like to encourage everyone to participate in any way they can from giving of your time to making a donation – big or small. Thank you to our students, staff, and families who have been working so hard to get ready for this important fundraising event that supports student programming through field trips, music education, and technology in the school and so much more!

Other reminders for this week & next:

Tuesday, October 17th: Individual Education Plans (IEPs) will be sent home. Please sign and return page 5. If you have any questions, speak to your child’s teacher. The IEP is a working document and can be adjusted to meet each student’s needs.

Friday, October 20th: X-country East Meet.

Building on the amazing performance of students in this past week’s qualifier, the Broncos will be the team to beat. Congratulations to all of the students who participated in the meet this past week – Ms. Gillan loved cheering you on. We had 5 runners in different grades finish first! The teams did amazingly well. Please see Ms. Robertson’s blog for additional results and details about upcoming training.
