Dear Parents and Friends,
We enjoyed guest storyteller Angela Klingler last week. She visited with us on her way to the Waterville Valley Storytellers’ Exposition. Her expressive story telling surprised some students, but was well received. In just under two weeks, we will welcome Joe "The Trick Star" Odhiambo, a former NBA basketball player. He will razzle and dazzle us with his tricks, and ground us with his thoughts on friendship, kindness and consideration.
A few reminders are in order:
- Permission slips for Boston were due today, Friday, October 3. I will accept both student and parent slips on Monday, but absolutely not a day later. Payment must be included with the slips or a reservation will not be made. We are required to pay in full for all spaces reserved.
- Sandwich Fair parking help is needed on all three days. Mr. Hillger will be guiding the crew on Saturday; Mr. Hansen will lead on Sunday; and Mrs. Morton will handle Monday. But we cannot do it alone. There is a signup sheet outside the office.
- Mr. Whitney will begin after-school chorus for Middle Multiage, Upper Multiage and Grade 6 students who are interested. A permission slip is included with this newsletter. Mr. Whitney may be able to make some allowances for those finishing up Fall sports that take place on Wednesday. Please see the permission slip for information on contacting him.There is no school next Friday, October 10 or Monday, October 13.
- There is a half day of school on Thursday, October 23 and no school on Friday, October 24 so that there can be Parent-Student-Teacher conferences.
