Note from Wayne:

Preschool Playground Work Session:  We now have a Preschool Playground with things to interact with!  We had a great work session and thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.

Open House:  It was nice seeing all of you last night.  I particularly enjoyed watching the pick-up soccer game at the end of the evening.

Reminder regarding All School Sing:  All School Sing will be on Fridays from 8:30-9:00.  All are welcome!

AMP Meeting Date/Time:  After reviewing the survey, the first Tuesday of the month works best for most of us.  Our first meeting will be October 2nd from 6:45-8:15.

Dropping students off in the morning:  With the addition of Preschool, we have many more students being driven to school.  In order to reduce the line of cars parked along the wooden fence, can you please move your car after you have dropped your child off.  If you plan to stay for a little while, please us one of the parking spots either along the chain linked fence or down in the lower lot.  Thank you.

Have a great week,
