Week of 11/11-11/15

Hello Families!

Thank you for the opportunity to share all of the wonderful things your kiddos have been doing in the 6th grade! I love parent teacher conferences because they are a great opportunity to touch base and show we are all on the same team.

I hope you all are taking time during this long weekend to relax and recharge! Next week we have a fire drill on Tuesday where the fire department will be observing. Now is a convenient opportunity to talk to your children about your own fire plan in your homes as well as check those batteries in the smoke detectors! We also have a vocabulary quiz on Wednesday from our China Unit.

11/11 **Veterans Day!** No School and ELC is closed

11/12 **Fire Drill with Fire Department Observation** Please partner with me in expressing how important these practice drills are for your child’s safety.
