Dear Parents/Guardians:

There is an all call going out tonight, October 30, in regards to our Halloween activities.  At the time of the all call I will make a decision on whether we will be having our parade or not.  There is supposed to be rainy/misty weather and if that is the case we will not have a parade.  I am watching the forecast and will make the decision at the time of the all call.  Even though we may not have a parade we will still allow the students to dress in costume, and we will still have our classroom parties. Please review the letter below that was emailed out on Tuesday night.

Just a reminder that tomorrow, October 31st, is a short session day.  Dismissal is at 12:30 for PK and K and 12:40 for grades 1-5.   Please be prompt to pickup because our staff members have to attend their meetings in the afternoon.

Sincerely,
Sean Dunphy

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Attached you will find a High Frequency Word List for grades K-5.  Each grade is separated by page and these are the words that the students should be able to read, write, and spell by the end of each grade level.  Please take a look at these words and review them with your children at home to help promote their education.  Thank you for taking the time to look at the lists below and investing in your child's education.
