November 11-15, 2019
Good evening, this is Principal Brink calling with your weekly announcements.  Happy Veterans Day to all of our family members that have previously served or are active military.  We truly appreciate all of your service to our country!  To celebrate, our third graders will be performing our annual Veteran’s Day show from 6:30-7:30PM in the gym at Gates on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  All in the community are welcome.  Then the students will perform for the school on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 2:45pm.  We will be celebrating our Veterans all week!  VETERANS DAY parent letter 2019-2020.docx 

“Stuff the Turkey” food drive is going on at Gates to donate to our local food pantry to help families during the holidays.  See handout for a list of nonperishable food items.  Your donations are greatly appreciated.  Students will participate in the Turkey Trot on Thursday, Nov. 21 during their Resource time.  Stuff the Turkey Flyer.pdf 

Since we are starting the inclement weather alerts early this year, please stay tuned to your local tv stations, Facebook, Twitter, and phone for updates from CCPS.  Make sure you have a back up plan for your child in the event we have an early release or late start to our day.

Please see the rest of the events for November!  It is going quickly!
