Hey Mavericks!  As we look ahead this week, there are some reminders for everyone to take note of.  We are still working hard here at school, so anticipate that there will still be homework coming home and projects still underway!

  • If you are leaving early for the holidays, please let the office know by calling the school and leaving a message or speaking with Mrs. Mueller or Mrs. Whitfield.
  • Thank you for your support of the Bookfair.  We raised $3191.25 which will support our library and our Makerspace.
  • There are 2 days left to order Spirit Wear.  If you are interested, please visit this link to purchase. SPIRIT WEAR ORDERING
  • We are encouraging students to bring home winter clothes for the holidays (snowpants etc) so please help by reminding your children as well.
  • Lost and Found is still out on the tables – have a look to see if anything belongs to you – anything left will be donated next week.
  • Reminder for Inclement Weather Days – the school will be open, but buses will not run.  If your child is a bus student, check Twitter, the Blog or for any information you require.
