Thank you!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who was able to come out to our 2nd Movie Night on Friday.  It wouldn't have been a success without each of your support.

A few reminders for this upcoming week:
     On Friday (the last day before the break) we'll be having a Christmas Breakfast in the fifth Grade.  I'll be sending home a flyer tomorrow asking for any donations for our meal.  Thanks in advance for all your help.
    Also, don't forget about your Washington, D.C. payments.  We're hoping to have half the trip paid for before the break!  Please get those in ASAP.
