brrrrrr – Winter Weather is Here

imagesWinter temperatures have arrived.  Please make sure your child has the appropriate attire to be comfortable while playing outside (hats, gloves, scarves, coats, etc).  As long as the weather permits, our playground monitors take the children outside for recess and we would like to make sure the children are dressed properly to match the temperatures.

Thank you!

Garden Work Day A Success

Thank you to the GREATEST team of parents and kids who came out for our work day in the garden!  Despite the cold weather,  we were able to accomplish the task of removing all of the old mulch, which had broken down and turned into compost.  We were able to add some of it to the rain garden which we expanded by a few feet on either side.  Special thanks to Gary Broderick for bringing and operating his tractor, which was a huge help in completing such a big task.  We look forward to making the garden an even better space for students, teachers and the whole school!

Conestoga Spirit Day

Greetings from Conestoga’s Sixth Graders!

We are planning a Conestoga Spirit Day!  On November 25th, your child can wear a sports jersey, hat, shirt, or hoodie of their favorite team.  The  sixth grade class will be creating math spirit posters for each class. Spirit Day will be held on November 25th, two days before Thanksgiving break.  No child will be left out, and it will be a fun filled day.  So save the date and support your favorite team!

Garden Reminder

Garden Work Day Reminder:

Please dress warmly if you are attending tomorrow’s Garden Work Day.  Also, if you have flat shovels, even snow shovels, please bring them since our main task will be clearing out all of the old mulch.  Wheelbarrows would be helpful, too!  Thank you!!

Funding Factory

Once again this year, the PTO and the school are encouraging our families to recycle.  Not only is a great thing to do for our environment and the future, the PTO can earn money for the school as well.  Thank you for all your help.  Please click the following link to see what you can do to help.
