We really have been digging deep into some great non-fiction books to learn about apples, their life cycles, and interesting uses for the fruit.

PARENT –TEACHER CONFERENCES
The majority of parents have signed up for fall Parent-Teacher Conferences. I still have a handful of people to schedule. Conferences will be held on the evenings of Tuesday, October 22 and Thursday, October 24th. Please note that I am very willing to meet with you before school if that works better. I am usually at school by 7:20 AM. If you have not scheduled your conference, please email me so we can set up a time.
Don’t forget that Friday will be a 1/2 day for students. School will dismiss at 12:40. Please let me know if your child will be going home a way that is different than he or she usually does on Friday afternoons.
Thurs.– Sophia H.
Fri.– Sophia M.
