Pumpkin Day!

Thank you to everyone who donated and volunteered to make our Pumpkin Day successful! Students completed a pumpkin craft, ate pumpkin cookies, learned about the lifecycle of a pumpkin, played bingo, and felt the inside of a pumpkin! It was an exciting day! Please see below for pictures from our special day.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Happy Sunday! I sent this message out on Seesaw on Wednesday 10/27, but wanted to post a reminder on here.

Parent Teacher Conferences will be offered on Nov. 18th, Nov. 22nd, and Nov. 23rd. Each conference is 15 minutes long, and you may choose an “in-person” conference or a “virtual” conference. (For in-person conferences, masks must be worn in the building at all times.) Please note which you would prefer when you sign up, so I know what to expect. If this is your first time doing conferences it is important to note that the 15 minutes we schedule is set in stone. Running late causes everyone else on the schedule to be late. If you choose to do a virtual conference, please test the link you are provided prior to the conference in order to be prepared.

You will need to sign in with a Google Account (you may use your students, but please note that the confirmation email will be sent to THEIR school Gmail account. If choosing a virtual conference, you will need to use their Gmail account to log in to the actual meeting as well. Click on the following link for directions for signing up and please be sure to include your child’s name and “in-person” or “virtual” in the description box when you sign up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_O9KngnOWI

Our annual Sub will be held on during conferences on Monday, Nov. 22nd. No forms will be sent home due to the toner shortage.
