Conference Week

Thanks for a wonderful week of parent-teacher conferences!  It is truly my pleasure to report on the wonderful progress and behaviors your children show me on a daily basis.  Please remember that students will have another early dismissal on Wednesday, Nov. 21 to begin the Thanksgiving break.  I hope everyone has a wonderful time visiting with family and eating lots of food!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Another wonderful week!

I thought last week couldn’t be beat having the RUN for FUNds.  However, this week was amazing because…

  1.  we’ve almost hit the $10,000 mark for the RUN for FUNds and we still are accepting donations for one more week.
  2. the school had a PTO sponsored assembly which highlighted a magician and skills of reading
  3. we helped Kayden celebrate his brother’s excitement of being on TV.

Hope everyone gets a chance to get outside to play before the rain arrives.

Fun Filled Week

We finished this great week of learning with a fun filled Crazy Hat Day!  It was made possible by the school raising at least $1,000 for our RUN for FUNds.  You can still donate…

  1.  Online donations
  2. Fill out mailing labels and we send out a letter
  3. Directly send cash or checks into school

Hope everyone has a fun time watching the Millersville Parade tomorrow.
