Week of November 12


Thank you to all of the children, staff, families, and community members who came out to offer gratitude to our founder, Mary Fraser, and plant the time capsule.  A special thank you to the PTO, especially the PTO Officers (Leigh, Angie, Ryann, Lauren, and Leah) for a great Fall Festival!  If you have pictures and videos, please share them with so that we can compile an album for the Fraser family and our own archives.

Book Fair opens tomorrow!  Students will have the opportunity to make wish lists this week, but you don’t have to wait for those to be completed to shop.  Check out the great selection of Usborne books!

Please take note of the time on Tuesday, November 20!  Light Purple Room students will not host until 10:40.  Everyone else is welcome first thing in the morning.  School will close at 11:30 that day as we begin Thanksgiving Break.
