Halloween: No Costumes at School
Teachers have asked that students only wear Halloween colors or t shirts on October 31 to celebrate Halloween. Each teacher will send home any classroom plans for that day.
Dressing in costumes will not be allowed.

The PTA will be having a Spring carnival rather than a Halloween carnival this year. We hope all of you can assist with the planning and preparation for this event!

End of the Quarter
The first Quarter ends on October 14, 2016. Students have received Perfect Attendance certificates for the month of September only. The Certificate states, “Never Absent , Never Late.” This will be the standard for the Semester awards assemblies as well, so every student absence counts whether excused or unexcused.

Parent/Teacher Conferences
A conference schedule will go home to households next week. We are planning sibling conferences back to back whenever possible. Progress reports will only be given to families with a conference. Dates are: October 21 and 24.

Just a reminder the final day to order Chaparral Spirit Wear is Friday, October 7, 2016.
