Shenandoah National Park Trip

We had a wonderful trip on Thursday! The students learned a lot about meadow and forest habitats as we made discoveries at Shenandoah National Park. Thank you, chaperones, for your help!


Office & PTA Notes

*National School Lunch Week – 10/15-10/19

*Harvest Fest is Thursday, October 25. This year we will not be holding the auction as part of this event so we are asking that parents contribute items to a theme basket which everyone will have an opportunity to place a silent auction bid. Please help us create auction baskets of fun.

2nd-Craft Sets (examples: coloring books, markers, jewelry making kits, melty beads, etc)

REMINDERS FROM THE OFFICE:

*Please call the school office at 540-289-7510 by 9:00 am to report if your child will be absent or tardy. Unverified absences are unexcused absences.

*Please be aware that the instructional day ends at 3:00pm. If your child needs to be picked up early from school for an appointment, please send a note with him/her that day to school. It interrupts all students’ instruction when we have to call into the classroom for children to be release unexpectedly. Please plan ahead, and send a note for early dismissals as to minimize interruptions.

*NO AFTERNOON TRANSPORTATION CHANGE REQUESTS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER l:00 pm ON THE DAY OF THE REQUESTED CHANGE.
