Reminder: intent forms and the $50 deposit for the 6th grade Redwoods field trip are due TOMORROW (October 1).

A big thank you to Christine for stepping up to be our room parent! We appreciate you!!!

This Friday, 4 October, is our Harvest Festival!  4-7 right here at the school!  Unlimited ride wristbands are $8 – there will be rides, games and yummy food for the whole family to enjoy!

I know I promised a year-at-a-glance to be coming home soon and am working hard to get this to you!  A quick update, there have been some significant schedule changes and shifts when it comes to upper elementary field trips and experiences.  Until that all gets settled and I get the final schedule from the team, I don’t want to create a hard copy calendar.  I am hoping I will get final word on that by Tuesday and be able to get those to you.  Until then, the blog is the best place to get up to date info about what is on the horizon.

This weeks reminder: Growing bodies and minds need lots of sleep and good food to keep going! With a month of candy ahead of us, please remember that candy and gum are not allowed at school.  If your child craves a sweet treat at the end of their lunch, fruit and yogurt are great choices!

Looking for a way to help your child and support what is going on in the classroom?  This month we are working on math fluency.  Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts are great places to start.

These two sites have great ideas for games that build math fluency.  Check them out:
