Fall Harvest Day will be celebrated on Thursday, Oct. 31st. In keeping wth the spirit of fun, children may dress in costumes for the day. Children who choose to participate should come to school dressed in their costumes and be prepared to remain in their costumes all day. Please keep in mind that costumes should be comfortable, allow for children to move freely, and should not depict any sort of violence. We will not be having visitors or volunteers on this day. We will be very busy working on fall crafts and a fall science experiment.

Family Night is also on Thursday, so the school will be open from 6-8 p.m. if you would like to come at that time. A flyer will be sent home on Monday. Thank you
