A Note From Our Principal
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and classroom celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and Trunk or Treat event is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions! This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with our community. As part of this focus we are busily preparing for our Holiday Giving campaign. This year we are looking to host two local families within our community and provide them with gifts and food for the holidays. We will provide you with more information as soon as we have it.
We are so excited about the new paint in our buildings and the other improvements that have been taking place to the buildings. We are very sorry if it caused a disruption to you in the morning or afternoon. It was my goal to have a minimal impact on the students and parents as possible.
Our upcoming Fall Festival on Saturday November 16th is sure to be a blast! We will be having a petting zoo, yummy treats, Willy Woo Woo, PTO 50/50 tickets, and lunch will be served. A new addition to this year’s event is the Art Auction. Each classroom has been working very hard on creating a collaborative art project within their room. We will have the pieces on display starting on Saturday November 16th. The art auction will run until Wednesday November 20th. The highest bidder will win the artwork. Bidding can be done in the classroom and needs to be completed in increments of $1.00. The classrooms whose project nets the most profit, will receive $100.00 in supplies of their choice. All proceeds will benefit the Holiday Show. We hope you like this new addition!

Illness Policy Reminder
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 3-5 minutes
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rash, including diaper rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
