The children were so excited for recess as the snow covered the ground for the first time this school year. It was fascinating to watch as the children changed from their competitive games played at recess to the uniting of a common goal - building humongous snow balls.
The school was filled with excitement as the students entered dressed to dazzle, scare, make others laugh, or just to enjoy the events of the Halloween day.
The faculty sure did dress it up. Our Fifth Grade teachers came as Rock, Paper, Scissors. The Sixth Grade teachers turned into "The Three Blind Mice". Some of the faculty were transformed into Minions; hopefully, they will be back to normal tomorrow. We had Jenny, a character from a book, a puppy, man, scarecrow, chef, Santa, the list goes on.
Thanks to all those who celebrated this day with us during the parade, in the classroom, or by helping your child dress up to enjoy the festivities.

During our First grade literacy night, parents came to the school with their student and learned about writing, technology in reading, and reading instruction.
There are many reasons we hold literacy night. A few of those reasons are listed below.
- To inform parents of ways to help their students at home, which is supportive of the teachers.
- To strengthen the relationship between parent and student.
- To strengthen parent and teacher relations.
- To strengthen community/school relations.
