Parent Conference Week is next week – beginning Monday and running until Friday, November 9th we will have early dismissal (1:35 pm) every day to allow time for our teachers to meet individually with parents and discuss their child’s progress.
On these early dismissal days (or any school day, for that matter) please do not pick up children other than your own unless it’s been prearranged. We know that our families like to help each other out, but the office needs to know, or else we get confusing situations where a parent is not sure which neighbor picked up their child – and we don’t know whether we need to look on campus for a missing student.
On Tuesday, we will be holding our Student Council election here on campus. The posters look great, and we are looking forward to some stirring speeches. Next Tuesday, it just so happens, is also election day for adults here in the USA. I urge and implore every adult to VOTE this Tuesday (unless you voted early by mail). Every vote counts – be sure that YOUR voice is heard.
We Saved the Book Fair!
Our school's BOOK FAIR will run next Tuesday through Friday, after school from 1:30 - 3:30 each day. We'll end on Friday with PAJAMA DAY (come to school in your PJs!) and a family event including a delicious 5th Grade BAKE SALE. Come to the auditorium and discover your story in an enchanted forest of books!
THANK YOU to all the generous helpers... and we can still use a couple more... https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e48a9a82aa7f85-enchanted
Stargazing in the November Sky – What to look for!
Every month, Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) publishes a wonderful monthly newsletter that highlights things going on in the JPL / CalTech universe. As part of that monthly update, they include a great synopsis of fun things to see in the night sky for the month. There’s a GREAT video that you can all watch as a family that explains with graphics and animation what’s going on in the sky. Who knew there was so much going on in our sky this month!
