Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
On Friday, October 30, 2015, we will be having a “scary story happening”. Students will share original stories they have written this month. I encourage students to bring flashlights, so when they read their story to the class they can turn out the lights and use the flashlight to make it even more special. I will also be making hot chocolate that day. If you would like to donate hot chocolate (packets), spoons, napkins, hot cups, marshmallows or cookies it would be greatly appreciated!
Also on that day, in the morning we have our annual character parade. This is an optional event. I will pass out the permission slips this week. If interested I will give you a book report form. You may dress up as a character from a book and march in the parade on campus.
PTO is putting on a fall festival on Thursday, November 5, 2015. It takes place from 5-7 pm. Fourth grade is having a bake sale! If you are able to donate a baked good, we would love it! The fourth-grade teachers will be selling items at the table. If you would like to volunteer for a half hour or more, let me know!
Let’s have an awesome week!
