November E-Blast

Dear Parents,

We are heading into the holidays and its hard to believe how time has flown by. We want to make it a healthy winter for our students, so please remember, if your student has had a temperature, thrown up, or been on antibiotics for less than twenty-four hours, please keep them home.

The character attribute for November is compassion.  We are having a food drive for the Elbert Task Force beginning October 20th and ending November 20th. We are encouraging students to bring in canned food items, cereal and toiletries.

Mrs. Cook’s class is collecting new/gently loved stuffed animals for the Teddy Bear Project- this organization distributes stuffed animals to children in crisis.  Anyone interested in helping, there is a collection box outside of Mrs. Cooks classroom. We are so excited to see our students open up their hearts to help others less fortunate.

All unclaimed lost and found items will be donated October 30, 2015.

Please mark your calendars now for our students upcoming Christmas programs.

  • Kindergarten through fourth grade Thursday, December 3, 2015, 6:00pm to 7:00pm.
  • 5th through 8th grade Wednesday, December 2, 2015, 6:00pm to 7:00pm.
