Dear Families,
Please be respectful of our choice to leave Halloween festivities at home this year. Our trip to the farm is strictly a fall, harvest, animal, life cycle study. Please leave costumes at home or in backpacks. Additionally, please keep candy at home. Students bringing candy to class may be very disappointed when the teacher has to confiscate it, but it is a terrible distraction.

We need chaperones for our trip this Friday. Please let the classroom teacher know if you are able to attend.

Our trip to the movie at Logan Center has been postponed. Please look for further updates in the take home folder. A giant thank you to all the parents who have responded in such a timely manner to our Harlem Dance Theater request. If you have not paid for that trip yet please do so ASAP as we will lose our seats if we do not pay for it this week.
