Student Fundraising Initiative
Seventh grade student Ellory Hare is organizing a student initiative fundraising project for the Children's Hunger Fund. Ellory distributed fundraising boxes to students in elementary and middle school. Please return the boxes no later than Wednesday, November 16th by delivering them to Ellory or to the teachers in the elementary building. The Children's Hunger Fund is an opportunity for all of us to help feed hungry children throughout the world. Twenty-five cents feeds one child a hot meal. Imagine what our spare change or donation could make in the lives of hungry children throughout the world!

Second and Third Grade Journey on Wednesday
The second and third grade students will travel to the National Museum of Wildlife Art on Wednesday between 12:30 and 2 pm. They will return in time to watch the 4/5 production of "Go West" at 2:15. This is part of an integrated arts project on fables and personification of animals that Heidi, Megan, and Shannon are working on together. 

Go West!
Thank you to Norene, and everyone, who helped make our first play of the year a success. We value the importance of arts in education. This is a fantastic opportunity to take risks, practice cooperation and patience, and learn musical and performance skills.

Fourth Grade to KHOL Radio
The fourth grade will be visiting the community radio station this Thursday during the first two blocks to read their personal narratives on air! What a great opportunity to be accountable for presenting narrative to an audience and to learn about radio.

Opportunity for 9-13 Year Olds: Stage Stop Sled Dog Race

Early Release on Friday
The students will be released at 12:25 on Friday. Students will NOT eat lunch before departing. We will make sure we serve a hearty snack that morning. Teachers have a full work day and will be wrapping up the end of the trimester grades and preparing for trimester reports. 

Thank you to Heather, Patricia, and Aimee for helping with snacks and rags this week (11/11) and to Laura, Amy G., and Amanda for their support next week 11/18. We also really appreciated the Parent Council snacks through our weeks of learning team meetings. Yum!
