HAPPY FIRST FRIDAY OF OCTOBER!!
NEWS FROM THE OFFICE….. Can you believe it, we have made it through our first month of school and wow did it go by fast! It has been a busy couple of weeks since our last “Blog Bits”. We had school pictures taken last week and the Walk A Thon this week. Just an FYI I know you have not received your student’s photos yet, but for those not photographed or if you would like retakes once you have seen your photos the retake day will be Tuesday, November 2.
This should be a short news week as things are going very smoothly here and nothing to big coming up. Please read on however, as the Walk A Thon updated will posted below under PTC news.
LIBRARY NEWS…… We have enrolled our school in the Book It Program which is sponsored by Pizza Hut. This program will run from October through March. Each grade level will have a weekly reading goal. A calendar will go home at the end of each month for students to track their reading minutes for the following month. Once they have met their goal, send the calendar back and we will collect and issue them a certificate for a FREE one-topping Personal Pan Pizza. You have 30 days from the date on the back of certificate to redeem it. This program may be combined with Reading Counts and any at home reading. Please direct all your questions to our Librarian Mrs. VandenBerg at firstname.lastname@example.org Feel free to also visit the Book It! Program website at www.bookitprogram.com. The first calendar will go home the last week of September for the month of October. Have fun and READ READ READ!!!
