Wednesday Folder – October 26, 2016

Hello Thunderbirds!

Thank You All!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Fall Carnival a smashing success! It was so much fun and so great to see everyone there!

We’ll have more information on the money raised once all the receipts are in, but we are on track to beat last year’s totals!

5th grade leaves for Camp Champions

You may have noticed all the bags in the foyer this morning. Today our intrepid 5th Graders head off for 3 days and two nights on a educational team building adventure. This is an annual trip that all the 5th grade classes get to take. They have a blast learning in nature and come back with so many stories. I can’t wait to hear about this year’s adventure.

Learn more about this amazing experience here:
