Week of October 30th

Important information

Pizza day is Thursday! Slips will be sent home on Monday. Please make sure you return the slip by Wednesday if you would like pizza. They place the order Wednesday so if you turn it in Thursday there is no guarantee that enough extra has been ordered to accommodate for your order.

We are going to be doing some recycled art. If you have disposable pie plates or aluminum foil, please send it in. Please wash it first.
