Here is next week’s newsletter: October 25-29.  Thank you for taking the time to read the newsletter each week. We will begin our Science unit on Balls and Ramps on Monday. Please read the important information on the newsletter linked above pertaining to this Science unit.  I also hope that you and your child are enjoying spending time together as you do the October Challenge that you will find at the upper right-hand corner of our newsletter.

The next PTA meeting is Monday, October 25th at 5:30.  The Trail of Treats will be following the PTA meeting at 6:00. We are still in need of candy for this fun event!  Each family that is participating needs to send an unopened bag of candy to be distributed that evening.

The Book Fair will be open this coming Monday, October 25th. It will be open from 7:45-2:15 daily and will close on Friday, October 29th at 11:00 a.m.  In addition, if you wish to come and shop with your child the Book Fair will be open during the Trail of Treats on Monday night from 5:00-7:30 p.m.  Our class is scheduled to visit the Book Fair on Monday. If you would like for your child to purchase books you can send money in a marked envelope or Ziplock bag inside your child’s daily folder.

Mr. Hill recently sent an email reminding parents that students need to wear a mask to school daily.  We also need you to keep extra masks in your child’s backpack so that they can change masks as needed during the school day. Please remind your child to keep up with their mask during the day.  We have a very limited supply of replacement masks at school. 

We had a wonderful teacher appreciation lunch yesterday provided by PTA.  If you contributed to this luncheon, thank you so much!  We all enjoyed this delicious meal!
