Halloween Activity Day
On Friday, October 30th, we will have a costume parade and fall celebration. On this day, we encourage children and volunteers to dress in costume. If your child chooses to dress up, please help them to select costumes that reflect animals, book characters, future careers, etc. We strongly discourage scary or ghoulish costumes, or those that could reflect violence in any way. Please NO PROPS (i.e. swords, lasers, guns etc.) Also, please keep in mind that the costume should be safe during recess, (no masks); comfortable during the working part of the day and ones that allow the children to use the restroom independently. The parade will take place at 9:20, or as soon as the Late Birds arrive. It will be held on the Kindergarten play yard. Bring your cameras and stand inside of the bike lane. When the parade is over, we will ask parents to kneel down so the students can recite a poem.
We look forward to meeting with the families in our classroom for our first trimester conferences the week of 11/2. All K AM 7:45-11:20 TUESDAY AND THURSDAY 11/3 & 11/4.
Our feast and Thanksgiving Program will be on Thursday, 11/18. More details to come. Look for emails from our wonderful room moms to help with our feast center preparation. All Students will attend the AM Session (7:45-11:38)
We are very grateful to the Wagon Wheel PTA. If it were not for them, our music donation drive would have been twice as much for each family, or we would have had to forfeit our music program. Thankyou to all the families who have donated generously. WE ARE $350 from our goal to fund a music teacher. Any size donations would be so appreciated at this time. Thank you!

Parking Lot Safety
Please be advised that traffic can become quite congested and parking is limited. We highly encourage that you carpool and/or leave early, to allow enough time for parking. We suggest parking at the Sports Park, or in the neighborhood adjacent to the school. Parking stall numbers 1-9 on the right, as you enter the parking lot, and stalls marked 42 through 36 on the left side of the school parking lot are available for Visitor Parking only. Please do not park in the red curbed zone in the school parking lot or in the Bridle Path Cul-de-Sac.
Please remember that when dropping off or picking up your student, to be considerate and merge with others. Always use the crosswalk and watch carefully for pedestrians. Be respectful of stalls assigned for staff parking and reserved spaces.
