This Week

Trick or Treat!  We are grateful to our parents that sent in bagels, cream cheese, fruits and juices for our Halloween party.  Thank you!

Thank you to our parent volunteers.  This year we have a group of loyal and hardworking parents that come each week to help in class.  Special thanks to Mrs. Faye, Mrs. Kaulbach, Mrs. Chatterjee, Mrs. Lowenstark, Mr. Shirley, and Mrs. Murgensen for showing up each week to help out.

Overflow and unwanted Trick or Treat candy can be turned in this week.  The collected candies are given to organizations that request it, such as the armed services.
