Moo-Ville Creamery Field Trip
Our first field trip of the school year will be to the Moo-Ville Creamery and Dairy Farm on Friday, October 12th. We will leave school at 9:30 and return around 2:30. Our class will have an opportunity to tour a dairy farm and learn how milk products are made (and enjoy a little homemade ice cream!). The cost is $7.50 per person.  Cash only please!!  Signed permission slips and money are due Friday, October 5th.

Trunk-or-Treat
Trunk-or-Treat will be on Wednesday, October 31st.  All students need to bring some type of bag to hold all their candy. Trunk-or-Treat will start at 1:30 pm.

A few words about costumes. We ask that your child does not wear a costume that would be considered unsafe, scary or menacing.  No weapons or gory objects are allowed.  If your child does wear/bring a costume like this, he or she will not be allowed to wear it.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  Parents are welcome and if you come–wear a costume and join the fun!  We’re really looking forward to the trunk or treat.

PTO – Pizza Fridays
The PTO will be offering pizza lunch every Friday.  Please look for the order forms to come home with your student.

Fall Carnival

Character Counts
This month’s Character Counts is Respect.  We will discuss this throughout the month.  Two students will be nominated based on displaying this character the best.  They will receive a certificate and pizza lunch with Mrs. Boris.
