Friday, October 30th (1 PM for K & 1, 3 PM for 2nd – 5th) - School-Wide Zoom Celebrations: We will be hosting our first school-wide Zoom celebrations next Friday.  Students can join to see their friends, play a game, and enjoy some music.  Costumes are optional if your student would like to dress up & share!  Links for each celebration will be in Seesaw next week.

Friday, November 6th - No Student Day & Progress Reports: Friday, November 6th is a no student day, so your child will not have any class Zooms or Seesaw.  Our teachers will spend the day planning and meeting together.  Your child will receive a progress report via Seesaw by November 6th, so you can discuss your child’s progress this fall together!
