A Few Notes:

Congratulations to all the 5th and 6th graders for completing the first full week of school! Here are a few notes/reminders we'd like to share:

*The fall continues to provide us with beautiful weather, which makes everyone exceptionally thirsty! Please check that your student is bringing a water bottle to school every day.

*Last Monday, all the 5th and 6th graders learned about Student Council. The short essay to express their interest to join is due Monday.  Returning 6th graders are eligible to hold an office this year, and should indicate their interest, qualifications and top three office postitions as well.

*Please remind your student about the school's cell phone rule for students: No student cell phone use on campus during, before, or after school. Student cell phones are to be stored in backpacks (at students' own risk) and turned off. 

*Mrs. Giller and Mrs. Kurash are still looking for homeroom parents.

*Each homeroom is looking for one, or two (three for the larger 6th grade class) parent chaperones for the Sculpture Fest field trip on October 4. We are scheduled to arrive at Charlotte Davenport's at 9:30 and view sculptures until 10:50. Please let your child's teacher know if you're able to help.

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
