Fall has arrived, and the weather is changing. Please make sure that your children (especially the younger ones) have appropriate clothing for outdoor recess. And, speaking of the weather, it caused postponement of our Pumpkin Patch Fair last Saturday, as you know. This Saturday’s forecast shows sunny, partly cloudy, with temps in 60s and 70s, so we are looking forward to a great day. If you signed up to work the fair last week, please check in with Chris, if you haven’t yet done so, on whether or not you still plan to work this week. Please let her know, either way.

Believe it or not, tomorrow is already the end of the first mid-quarter. Progress reports will be going home early next week. Please sign and return with your child(ren).

I am thrilled with the amount of bottles and cans being dropped off to help the school. Drop offs are every other Friday, and the third one is tomorrow. Please drop them off when you bring your child to school. My thanks yet again to alumni mom Gabi Brin-Martin for heading up this bottle ministry.

As we head into October, things start happening quickly. NEXT weekend will be a four-day weekend for students, as Friday, October 6th is a professional development day, and Monday is a holiday, and the 27th will see the end of First Quarter, and our annual Trunk or Treat at 6 p.m. (details in future Messengers).

That’s it for now. It continues to be a daily blessing to serve both you parents and your children.
