Dear Families, The 2017-2018 school year continues with our mission of teaching our students to be learners and leaders! We hope you are hearing the language of the 7 Habits at home. It is our goal that these Habits become an everyday part of your child’s life and that they realize the importance of applying them inside and outside of school. We would like to invite all of our families to a 7 Habits Family Breakfast on Friday, Oct. 20. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about the Habits, give you some great ideas about how to support the Habits at home and provide time to create some “make & take” projects. We hope to see you there!
Thank you to everyone who came to our Fall Festival (See pictures throughout the newsletter). It was great to see so many families. First quarter ends Oct. 12, and report cards will be distributed at Parent/Teacher conferences Oct. 25 and 26. If you haven’t made an appointment with your child’s teacher, please contact them or call the school office at 636-272-2704.
