Happy Wednesday, Thunderbirds!
We made it to October!
Thanks to everyone who came out and worked in the 🌧 rain 🌧 last Saturday for Beautification Day!
The grounds look spectacular!
And a great big Appreciation Pump 💪‼ 💪‼ 💪‼ to Ben Appl for leading another successful day!
Don’t forget we have a short week this week and a four-day weekend…yippee!
No school this Friday (10/5) or Monday (10/8). The teachers will still be working hard to connect with each and every parent for Parent/Teacher Conferences on Monday. If you have not signed up with your child’s teacher, please do ASAP.
Don’t forget the Used Book Fair 📚 is going on now! Ask your child dig into that piggy bank so they have some moola to purchase a book or two (50 cents each 💰). Each class has designated times, or they can stop by the library during lunch or right after school.
Please check your Wednesday Paper Folder today for a letter from the Principal, Mrs. Navarro, and AP, Ms. De La Torre!
