(Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Little’s classes must have their second book report, which is due on Oct. 22, in to earn Worker’s Holiday.)

The fifth grade Maturation Programs will be on Fri., Oct. 30 @ 2:00. The boys are in the gym and the girls are in the library. We hope that a parent will be able to attend with each child, however a child may attend without a parent. We DO need a permission slip returned in order for your child to attend. You may take child home after the program, if you would like.
You are all invited to come have a blast with us, as we explode our volcanoes. This will be on Tues., Nov. 3 at 2:30 on the south playground. Please DO NOT park in the bus loading zone. The volcano letter was sent home with your child last week and your child should be building his/her volcano at home. Volcanoes must be taken home or thrown away after the activity.

We will not need a permission slip, just feel free to attend and have your child participate. We have also sent home a flyer about a writing/art contest in conjunction with this birthday celebration. Entries are due at the front office by Nov. 2.
