Principal’s Letter

Monday Newsletter from Mrs. Hunt, 11/23/15

Dear Parents,

Please read the following;

Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 24 is the last day of school before our Thanksgiving holiday. School will resume on Monday November 30.  Homework club and Extended Day will be available tomorrow, November 24.


1) A special “thank you” to all parents who attended the Math Education Night. We had a great turnout, and we much appreciate your enthusiasm and willingness to learn about the math curriculum.


2) Thank you to the parents of third grade students for providing a delicious faculty lunch. It is always such a treat for the teachers to eat a hot meal or one they have not brought from home.


3) Monday, November 30, we will begin our all school advent prayer. This prayer takes place at 8:15am in the school gym for the next three Mondays.  Please make sure your child (kindergarten through fifth grade) is in line and ready to enter school just before 8:15am. All middle school students should be in class by 8:10am.


4) Please save the date for the annual Christmas program on Thursday, December 10, at 7:00pm. The church doors will be open for seating at 6:30pm that evening.


5) Congratulations to Miss Gale and our fourth grade class. They are the winners of the “Blazing Needles” reusable blazing birdie bag project.

Cynthia Schowe and her son Roman donated a special knitting bag to each fourth grade student as they began their knitting venture in fourth grade. Several parents, grandparents and staff members have taken time to teach fourth grade knitting. Students will donate a hat in the near future to The Road Home.


6) Our eighth grade students performed as true leaders last Friday, November 20, in our Thanksgiving food box project. Eighth grade students carried boxes of food to the gym, organized the food, then proceeded to gather their school “Family” for this special project. These student leaders facilitated the filling of 55 boxes of food for families in need. When students in school j”Families” finished filling boxes they were directed to write a letter or make a card for a Veteran. Over two hundred cards were delivered to the Veteran’s Administration Hospital today. Thank you to the middle school faculty, our eighth grade students, other classroom teachers and the many families for your food donations.

We were all proud and thankful upon completion of this project.

Thank You,

Happy Thanksgiving,

Mrs. Hunt, Principal
