Halloween Happenings
For Halloween, we invite students to dress up for our Halloween parade that will take place between 8:30 and 8:45am on Tuesday morning. We meet in elementary and admire handy-work and then parade through the middle and high school and back to elementary where class celebrations will take place. We ask for blood/gore and weapons to be left at home for Halloween night (we parade with Pre-K and want to stay rated G). Parents are welcome to stay during drop off and watch the parade, or dress up themselves!

Megan and Tracy's class then invites parents to stay for an author's tea post parade.

Garrett and Rachael's class will be journeying off campus that afternoon with Robbie Bond, a fourth grade speaker at the Shift Festival http://shiftjh.org/speakers/. Stay tuned to hear more about their work with Robbie and the SHIFT festival.

Dia de los Muertos
The entire elementary will be learning about Dia de los Muertos on the afternoon of Novemember 1st with the help of the eighth grade advanced Spanish students. Students will participate in multiple stations. Thanks to George for coordinating.

Thank You, Grandparents!

We really enjoyed having grandparents attend classes with students. Thank you to all the families for making this possible.
