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:

Upcoming Events

  • Aug 16
    Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher

    Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm


    Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.

    The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.
