News From the Office…
It has been busy at school and we are already looking at Thanksgiving coming up! Thank you to all the parents that came to parent teacher conferences! It is great to see the parent support for the kids here! We want to give a huge shout out to Mrs. Schollaart for organizing the teacher dinner for conferences and to all who donated food for this! It is greatly appreciated and was delicious!
We also had book fair this week so the library was busy as well! Thank you to Audrey Straub for organizing this big event and to all who volunteered their time to help with this! It is a big event that the kids love and would not be possible without all of your help!!
