HALF & HALF Day - Students Earn 3rd Celebration This Year
November 21, 2014
The first trimester of the school year has closed, and students will be bringing home their report cards today.  If you do not receive a report card, please contact the school after checking with your child.  If you have questions or concerns about the report card, please contact your child’s teacher.
Although school will be in session next Monday and Tuesday, this will be our last newsletter until we return from our Thanksgiving Holiday.  May this holiday be filled with much peace and joy for your family and friends, and be a safe one, too.  One of the things for which I am most thankful is to be a part of a school community with so many wonderful and talented children, parents/guardians, and teachers.
Our neighborhood churches are hosting a delicious hot dinner on Thanksgiving Day to anyone who lives in the area.  There are two ways to enjoy this delicious meal: you may go to the North Avenue Alliance Church at 901 North Avenue on Thanksgiving Day between the hours of 12:00 and 2:00 p.m.,        and it will be served to you.  However, if you prefer that the meals be delivered to your home between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, please call St. Mark’s Church at 864-7686 or 862-3616,  or me at the school at 864-8479, and let us know you many meals you are requesting, as well as your address and telephone number.       
We are so thankful to Mrs. Beatrice Gerrish of Ridgewood Drive, who knitted many beautiful (and warm!) hats and mittens for our students.  We are so thankful for our kind and generous neighbors!
Thank you for all you are doing—and will do—to make our school community one of safety, respect, and responsibility for all who come through our doors.
