Lids, please

Mrs. Murray's class is collecting lids. Please save and clean your lids from jam, peanut butter, salsa, etc. and send them in with your child. They will be making something really cool...

Cinderella at Turnage Theater Dec 8

Please send $10 for your child to attend the play, Cinderella, at the Turnage Theater on Wednesday, December 8. I know it's early, but the teachers need to buy the tickets in advance. I'll ask for volunteers to drive and give more info sometime in November.

10th year celebration Nov 13 -- drinks, please

The 10th year anniversary celebration of the school has been planned for Saturday, November 13 from 12 - 3.

The 6 - 9 classes have been asked to bring cans of soda or juice boxes/pouches (Capri Sun, etc). If each child could bring a 10-pack or a 12-pack that would be appreciated and we'll be able to reach our goal of 250 beverages/class.

If it's easier for you to send in $2 - 5 in an envelope marked "10th year anniversary" I'd be happy to do the shopping. I'll ask the teachers to pass the envelopes on to me -- you can send in your money any time if you choose this option.

If you choose to drop off drinks you may do so the week of Nov. 8 - 12, and the teachers will graciously store them in their office.

Thank you so much for your help!

Volunteer Hours

Remember to log your volunteer hours! As you know each family needs to contribute at least 20 hours of volunteer hours a year, and many of our families contribute much more. If you forget to record something that day simply write it down in the office later. Sharon Main has a volunteer log in the office, and one of our parents, Ginger Gardiner records those hours. Having accurate records of volunteer time helps the school when writing various grants, so please don't be modest and stop recording after you reach your 20 hours!

Attending Community Meetings, volunteering for Red Plate day, attending field trips, volunteering for Kids' Fest are all great ways to fulfill your volunteer hours. If you don't have enough hours and need ideas please feel free to contact me, and I'd be happy to help you think of ways to volunteer that fit with your schedule and interests!

Field Trip: Friday, Oct. 8 at 7:15 am

Don't forget the field trip is next Friday, Oct. 8! Remember to have your child at school by 7:15 for a 7:30 departure. Parents meeting the group at the planetarium should arrive by 10am and may purchase tickets there.

Don't forget to pack some snacks and a bottle of water for your child. Your child may bring a totebag with books, paper, puzzles, crayons, etc. Electronic devices are NOT permitted. If you send a cell phone it must be labeled and turned in to the teacher. Students are to wear their uniforms.

Thank you for turning in your $35 (includes 2 shows, the bus, and lunch) and permission slips in a timely manner! If anyone has not yet given the teachers their forms and money (cash please) thank you for doing so as soon as possible! Also please see the teachers if you have questions about room on the bus or any other issues related to the field trip.
