News for the Week of November 6-10

I hope you are all having an enjoyable weekend and remembered to change your clocks for day light savings time so no one shows up at school at the wrong time.   Also, don't forget this will be a four day week with no school on Friday in observance of Veteran's Day as we pay respect to those who have fought for our country and freedom.


This Week:

Operation Gratitude:  Reminder that tomorrow will be the last day to accept candy donations for Operation Gratitude to help support our troops.  All candy donations can be brought to the office and are greatly appreciated.   Also, speaking of candy please be sure to ensure the safety of our children by checking your children's candy prior to eating it.
