News From the Office…

We were able to celebrate some of our walk a thon winners this week and had a lot of fun! Mrs. Ball’s class were the lucky winners of the limo ride to Pizza Ranch. They had “a ball” ! We also took the top earners bowling this week. We had an excellent time and it is so nice to get to spend time with kids doing something fun and getting to know them!

Just a reminder that picture retakes are coming up on October 27. If your child was sick on picture day, you can bring in the envelope. If you want retakes, just send in the packet that was sent home with your child. Any questions, you can contact Geskus at 1-800-473-3885.

Our next early release day is November 4. Mark it on the calendar. Students are dismissed at 12:15 and they are not served lunch at school on early release days.
