For a couple of days this week I thought we were heading into summer once again! How lucky we were last Saturday for the start of this unseasonably warm weather to align perfectly for our first Family Fun Fall Festival day! A great time was enjoyed by everyone who participated, and I suspect this will become an annual event at Village. Thank you to our PFA organizers and families!
Please see the calendar for an addition to next Thursday, Oct. 27th - we are holding a PINK OUT day at Village. Everyone is asked to wear something PINK to school.
It's time for our first Pretzel Day! Yum, who can resist a warm pretzel? Not me! Order forms are in your child's backpack as well as posted to our virtual backpack and due back by next Friday, Oct. 21st.
Halloween Parade information and suitable costumes for our in-school celebration can be found in the virtual backpack.
We are continuing to raise funds for the Kortney Rose Foundation
The Kortney Rose Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to raising research funds for pediatric brain cancer. You can read more about this District -wide fundraiser in the virtual backpack under Community Events. Tomorrow is the second of three Friday collections. Thank you for your support on behalf of Kortney's family, and all the families affected by pediatric brain cancer.
Have you placed your Mixed Bag order yet? Orders are due by Oct. 21st. There are so many items that would make great holiday gifts! We have the opportunity to earn an even greater percentage back by placing a paper order form, rather than ordering online, as doing so eliminates additional processing fees. We are big supporters of most things electronically, but in this case we are asking for paper order forms to come back to the school.
Did you know October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month?
Help us spread the word by wearing Blue & Yellow on Fridays in October.
Please be sure to check the Google calendar below for upcoming school events and activities.
