Week of 10/29-11/2/18

Hello Panthers!
I bet you are ready for the week to start so that it can end, just like me. This is always one of those fun, but irritating weeks of the year. We get the joy of having Halloween mid-week. Please don’t let your student bring Halloween candy to school. They get enough sugar as it is. They really don’t need an extra jolt. We are looking for a smooth week and celebration on Friday!

Trunk or Treat Success!
If you didn’t make it out to the 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat, you missed a good community event! I was not surprised, but truly filled with joy to see all the community members from our feeder schools come out to join us. What a great event! The food trucks and band were the icing on the cake to all the great trunks that were present. If you didn’t get to stop by and talk with the great and powerful Oz, you missed out! Thank you PTA for organizing an amazing event!

Week of 10/22-10/26/18

Hello Panthers!
Another week is in the books as we narrow the window on October. What a crazy week of weather! I was glad to see no rain over the weekend, not to say that it won’t rain again this week. I see that it is supposed to be cold, so make sure your students bundles up in the morning. Several things going on this week and coming up soon.

Red Ribbon Week

Week of 10/15 - 10/19/18

Hello Panthers,
I hope you were able to enjoy a great weekend with amazing weather. Looking at the forcast it looks like the weather will be much cooler this week. I am going to make a prediction that you can call me on next week. Not sure how many of you are old enough to remember Carnac the magnificent, but here it goes. “We will have no fewer than 20 jackets/hoodies added to the lost and found over the next week, half of which will never be reported missing to parents and half of which students will say someone took when they set it down.” Seriously though, all items found are taken to the lost and found area in the lower commons outside the cafeteria. All hangable items will be on a hanger so that students or parents are able to identify. Although I encourage you to make students find their own lost clothes. I opened my calendar and promptly closed it. It is going to be a busy week full of activities. Make sure you stay up with all the latest by clicking on the “Upcoming Events” ta…
