We all had a great time at the Costume Parade. If you did not have the opportunity to watch the parade in person, go check out class dojo to look at some pictures of the event. Students had a great time showing off their costumes.
Second grade students put on their “activist” hats this morning, inviting parents to an early morning presentation to share what they have learned about endangered wildlife and all the things we can do at home to support conservation efforts. Thanks to all the parents that attended. Second grade students did a wonderful job!

The scaffolding work, originally scheduled to begin on Tuesday 10/29 was postponed because of the inclement weather. Instead, the work is set to begin today (11/1).

Work on the scaffolding will begin at 3:30pm and take approximately 4 days. The schoolyard will be closed while the work is being completed.
