Please turn in your slips and money to Mr. Quinn (7A) by Oct. 23. There will be refreshments, DJ, and prizes for those with the best costume, most creative costume, and best group costume. Make sure you come dressed in your Halloween costume! Please note that the Halloween Parade costume expectations also apply to the Halloween Social.
HALLOWEEN PARTIES OFF CAMPUS
It is a wonderful idea to have additional community gatherings off campus to celebrate the many holidays. Please enjoy the time together and encourage all classmates/parents to participate in these events if one is being held.
At this time, AM Care will end on Dec. 1, 2017. It will come to a close in the capacity that we designed it. We will continue to honor the few in need of AM care. You may ring the bell at the main door on Prospect Ave. and sign in.
AS A REMINDER: In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time. Please note temperature drops with winter coming and other weather concerns. Names of students waiting outside prior to 8:05 will be taken and parents will receive warnings.
