Happy Fall from W.I.P.P.!
October 18, 2011
I hope that all of you are ready for the fall weather that’s finally coming our way! Below are a few changes and upcoming dates to mark on your calendar.
Monday, October 24th Conference day--no school for students! Contact your child’s teacher if you need more information on scheduling a conference.
Fall photos Because we were late getting our proofs back from Miss Lori (www.photographybylori.com), the due date has been extended one week. Orders and payment need to be turned in (or ordered online) by Friday, October 28th. Miss Lori has also scheduled a studio retake time on October 27th from 1:00-4:00 for anyone who missed our school retakes.
Monday, October 31st Happy Halloween! Most classes will be invited to wear costumes and will be having their Halloween parties that morning. (Look for details coming home from your child’s teacher.) Our 3s and 4s will walk up to Summer Breeze in their costumes to trick-or-treat.
Friday, November 11th No school in honor of Veterans’ Day!
Thursday/Friday, November 17th/18th Usborne Book Fair (All proceeds go to our Playground Fund!)
Friday, November 18th Grandparents’ Day at WIPP! Grandparents (or a special friend) will bring their grandchildren to school for our Thanksgiving program (9:30 a.m.) and a special treat with their classes. (We’ll be sending more information home on this in the next couple of weeks.)
Thanksgiving Break No school November 21st through 25th! Enjoy the holiday!
Thank you for all for the used ink cartridges you’ve donated. We’ve received more than $50 in Staples rewards bucks from our school recycling! Please keep sending them in.
Thanks also to all of you who use your Publix card! We recently received a check for more than $250 from Publix! This is going straight into the fund for our planned new playground! Remember you can use more than one school card when you shop at Publix. If your child attends May Howard or any other school that uses a partners card, just ask the cashier to scan both of the cards. If you need a new card, let us know by email or phone--or stop by the office and pick one up.
Enjoy the season!
