All Saints Day was AMAZING. I am extremely proud of the children. Their portrayal of the saints and reverent behavior was noted by many people.
My thanks for all of the hard work parents put into the costumes. The children looked wonderful.
I have noticed that some students do not have sharpened pencils. Please ask your child about their supply. Each child is required to have 3 sharpened pencils every day.
Students also need to have an inexpensive pair of earbuds they can leave in school. I would appreciate all students having earbuds by Monday.
