Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
We are already into November? Can you believe it? We have had a busy month and I have a feeling this month will be hectic as well. Let me start off the newsletter by thanking all our families for making it to conferences. With the schedule changes and everything we were able to make 100% for our completion rate on conferences. THANK YOU! I also want to give a big Thank You to all the parents that helped make the meals for the staff and help run the book fair. Your help does not go unnoticed by me, or the other staff. The food was a blessing for us on the long days, and the book fair was a success. I know that the 6th grade teachers used the money given to us from the PTO to purchase 8 more reading sets for our reading groups to use this year. Again, thank you everyone!
