Movie Night This Friday at 6:00!

Students and Parents,
     Our Movie Night is this Friday!  I'll be sending home some info with your child on Monday about  the night itself.  Invite your friends!  The more people that come, the cheaper our trip to D.C. is going to be!
     As part of our fundraising that night, we will be selling concessions.  We're asking that each child bring in cans of soda for us to sell.  Please get them in as soon as possible!

     On Wednesday afternoon from 3:00-6:00, I'll be available for conferences.  I have not had a chance to meet with all of you yet about your child's academic performance, so please sign up!  I'll be sending home a sheet on Monday asking what times would work best for you.
