Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held next week.  We look forward to meeting with you on behalf of your children, whom you entrust to us for their academic development.  If you have not yet done so, please schedule a conference with each of your children’s teachers.  Please call the school
at 864-8479 if you would like assistance with scheduling.  Our school’s food pantry will have nonperishable food items on a table in the lobby during conferences on Thursday and Friday.  If your family is in need of food support during the weekend, please take what you need from that table. 
The avid reader holding the winning ticket for September was Luke Van Marter-Brown.  Congratulations, Luke!  Keep reading, Everyone!  A total of 274 tickets were given out in September, and I had many wonderful conversations with students about the books they’re reading.  During October, students will continue to receive one ticket for each book they read (or have read to them) and bring in to talk to me about.  In order to encourage student visits to our wonderful city library, the Fletcher Free Library on College Street, students will receive two tickets for each book checked out from that library and read and brought to me.  For more information about the Fletcher Free Library, please pick up a copy of their monthly newsletter/calendar from the kiosk in our lobby.
Our community partner, the Heineberg Community Center, is sponsoring a luncheon for grandparents (and great-grandparents!) and their grandchildren or great-grandchildren.  The luncheon will take place on Thursday, October 29th at 11:45 a.m.  Please pick up from the kiosk in the lobby a permission form if you would like your children to participate in this special event with their grandparents and/or great-grandparents.  (Forms are also available at the H.C.C.)  We will need to give the H.C.C. the number of those who will be attending by Wednesday, October 21st.  Grandparents/great-grandparents will be asked to pick up children at the school at 11:30 a.m., drive or walk together over to the center and then return to school after the luncheon is over.  For more information about the luncheon, please contact the school at 864-8479.
We are seeking volunteers to help out in our cafeteria at least once a week during the lunch periods (11:40 a.m.-12:05 p.m. for Grades K-2 and 12:05-12:30 p.m. for Grades 3-5).  Volunteers assist students in lining up, making healthy food and portion choices at the salad bar, and in composting their leftover food scraps.  If you can help with this, please call me at the school.  Thank you!  
Thanks 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.
