Thursday, Nov. 9 – SCRIP gift card orders due

Order forms went home with the Thursday announcements last week, but they are also attached. You can find the complete list of retailers and denominations HERE. Turn in your forms while are you’re at school for conferences. Think of all the gift giving opportunities that will be coming up that you can use gift cards to shop for, or just to give. Orders will be available to pick up on 11/17.

Friday, Nov. 10 – No School

I hope all of you, but especially the educators, get a little extra rest on this day after these crazy couple of weeks!

We’re still looking for volunteers to make soup for conference dinner for the staff on Wednesday. Soup needs to be delivered to the school in a crock pot by 1pm if it needs to be warmed, or by 4pm if it is already warm. Please email if you can help provide soup. Also, please bring a ladle. If you can help make soup, but don’t have a crockpot, let me know and I can try to track one down for you.
I hope you all have a good week!
