GLAD homework is due tomorrow.

We are looking forward to a great week leading up to Halloween! Today we built our haunted houses! This STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activity asked students to plan out their house looking at what would work best with the materials provided. They will have an opportunity to evaluate their structure on Tuesday and make any changes that may be needed.

Our school will have a fire drill on Tuesday at 9:20.

Free dress on Halloween! Black and orange clothing on Oct. 31st. We will walking over to the Academy in the afternoon to sing Halloween songs and trick-or-treat with the residence. Please send a simple costume in a labeled bag. This should be a costume that your child can put on and off by themselves. No make-up please. We will return to school for our class party. Such a fun time of year!
