I want to say thank to all of those who participated with the popcorn and takis fundraiser this year. We exceeded our goal of $12,000!! The children earned all their fun incentives as a school which are: Music during lunch, Game Day, a Dance Party during school, sliming the principal, and a slip and slide party. We will be sliming Principal Barney on October 5th at 2:30pm, and we will schedule their slip and slide party in the spring due to the cold weather. Way to go Raptors!! We have extra takis and popcorn if any parents want to come and buy them from us. We will plan on selling them after school once a week starting in November.
We have quite a few calendar items to look forward to this month. Please try and attend our bond meeting held October 5, 2017 at 7:45am in the library. Walk to School Week was changed to October 9th-13th, watch for flyers for information. Every year our school participates in the Reflections Contest. This is where children get to express themselves through the arts. Our theme this year is “Within Reach”. All projects for this contest are due October 23rd. Red Ribbon Week will also be at the end of month on October 23rd-27th. We will be having a fun assembly featuring Brad Barton on the 26th and would love you to ask your children about what they learned.
I also want to thank all of those who signed up to be a part of our PTA this year. We could not do what we do without help from parents and our community. Those who also bought raptor t-shirts should receive them by the end of this week.
