Principal's Weekly Message


Scotti Gleason

This is Ms. Gleason with this week's important reminders.  I have just 4 things to share:
First, just because we've had some time off following a week of minimum days, I thought I'd better remind everyone that Monday is a minimum day (as they all are).
Second, our PTO has kicked off the holiday season with their annual food drive.  Please bring in non-perishable food items that are within their shelf life to share with others who are in need this holiday season.  This is a wonderful practice to share with our children as they learn to be other-oriented, to recognize and then act on the needs of others and in doing so to spread love and joy this season.  Items should be brought to the classroom or to the barrel in the school lobby anytime from Monday, December 2nd to Friday, December 13th.
Third, please come to our annual Family Game Night this Thursday from 6-7 pm.  If you've ever attended a game night, you know this is a fun evening.  We have purchased about 60 fun family games and will have them set up and ready to play for you.  Bring your family, find a game you know or one you'd like to try and play.  We will serve hot chocolate and popcorn and after about 45 minutes of game playing, we will raffle off all of the games for you to take home with you!
And fourth, our PTO is also sponsoring their annual Holiday Gift Shop for our students to purchase gifts for their loved ones.  Shopping days are December 9th - 13th and each class has a designated time to shop.  Gifts range in price, but all are under $6.  We encourage students not to purchase for themselves but rather to consider how they might earn money around the home to find a little something special for their parents, grandparents, and/or siblings.  This shop requires many adults to support the shopping, buying and wrapping so we need you.  If you can volunteer for an hour or so,. please text Jennifer at 530-355-1849.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday.  Enjoy this last afternoon of our vacation.
