If you do send in a Halloween costume with your child, please make sure that they are able to put it on with little to no adult support. No masks, weapons or make up please.

Tomorrow are the parent teacher conferences. A reminder that school will NOT be in session. Please arrive on time as the meetings are only 10 minutes. Also, a reminder that this is a parent event and thus children are not required to be present.
