A BIG thank you to all the families that send food for our pot-luck yesterday.
As the children can tell you, we had a FEAST!  It was wonderful!

Tomorrow is Halloween and there is a dance in the afternoon which students
can go to, or they can watch a movie or they can do a science experiment with
Mrs. Ross.  For those students going to the dance we are encouraging them to
bring a canned food item to donate to the food bank.

We also have YPC tomorrow. I am permission slip forms from:
         Bryton, Dylan, Jason, Hannah and Joey H
**Please send them tomorrow.
