As Seen at MVS: Crafting Thanksgiving Placemats

Thanks for Reading

The Wonder of Another Week.

It's been an exciting week at school, but when is it NOT?!? Time spent on the playground meant big gusts of wind and children bundled up tight as we played into the evening, it meant learning to write/trace our names, it meant meeting new assistant teachers (welcome Liz and Leota). Every week is full of meaning...this one was no different.

Enjoy a short but sweet newsletter!

Thanksgiving Closure
Please remember we are closed in observance of Thanksgiving on Thursday and Friday of next week. Thanks and enjoy the time with family and friends!

Fundraiser Thanks!
We are so happy with the turnout and support from last Saturday's fundraiser and fall celebration. It was a wonderful to see the children and families enjoying the afternoon together here at school. We want to send a special thank you to all the parent volunteers, bake sale bakers, Suncommon, Chad Hollister and the individuals and businesses who donated to our silent auction. You all contributed to the success of this event, and we thank you. We're certainly looking forward to more events like this in the future, so stay tuned!

Costumes, Parade, Fundraiser, Oh My!

Happy Halloween Wow! What a great parade! We loved seeing the children decked out as well as having so many of you join us on the parade route; it was our best and biggest parade to date. We hope you also had a great weekend of festivities and enjoy some snapshots of a few ghouls and goblins.
