Note from the Principal
As the leaves change, we look forward to an eventful fall! This month we have two big events. On October 15th, we have our Fourth Annual Trunk o’ Treat from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. This is our fun and safe trick or treating event that we hold in our parking lot. Our parent volunteers decorate their trunks and hand out peanut/tree nut free candy and goodies to participants. It is truly one of our favorite events each year!Another event this month is our Halloween Parade and Class Parties on October 31st starting at 3:45 pm. Our parade will start promptly at 3:45 pm on our playground and then our class parties will follow.
Throughout this month our students will be focusing on the season changing, fire safety, Pablo Picasso and make believe through their Author Studies in their classrooms. We look forward to the enriching activities they will participate in while they study these topics.
As always, we look forward to an exciting month and please see either myself or Ms. Diana should you have any questions.
