Hot Dog Lunch

Our school is sending a group of students on a missions trip to the Philippines on Spring Break.  They are raising money to purchase water filters for the community they will be visiting there.

On November 6th the missions team is offering a hot dog lunch.  Today is the last day to order.  If you are interested, you can order through the Munch a Lunch program on the school website.

Seesaw Communication

I believe everyone is signed up on Seesaw at this point.  Hopefully you are seeing new posts as they are added.  Some of you have been leaving comments.  Thank you!  I love hearing from you!  I am hoping that this will be a useful mode of communication between home and school.

Rain Gear

Please remember to send your child to school with jackets and footwear appropriate for this rainy season.  We do go outside as much as we can because the fresh air is so healthy.  We remind the  children to stay away from puddles if they’re not wearing rain boots.  It is difficult, though, to stay dry in regular shoes because our playground area becomes quite soggy.  Boots are really quite a necessary item at this point.  Some children will be coming home today wearing their gym shoes because their footwear got too mucky for the classroom this afternoon.

Please also make sure your child has an extra change of clothes (including socks) in their backpack or locker in case they should need to change into something dry.

Thanks so much!

Mystery (apple) Recipe

Next week we will be making a “mystery recipe” on Wednesday and will need each child to contribute an apple for this activity. Would you mind sending an apple to school by Tuesday?

I am also in need of a parent helper for this activity.  If you are available on Wednesday for an hour (max) at the start of the day please email me at

Thanks and have a great weekend!
