This year seems to be flying by. Here we are, nearly finished with the second week of school, and starting the ninth month of the year. I am happy to see September though. Hopefully it will bring the beginnings of cooler weather, pumpkin spice everything, and lots of learning for our little Dinos.
As you can see from the calendar below (click the image to make it bigger and easier to print), we have quite a lot going on this month. The always popular Celebrate Reading Parade is on Friday, followed by our first school holiday on Monday. Parent Orientation and Room Parent meetings are Thursday the 8th, and looks like catalog sales are kicking off the next day! Our WatchDOGS meeting is Tuesday the 13th and our first teacher luncheon is Thursday that same week. (If you’d like to donate items to our teacher luncheons or other teacher events we hold each month, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll make sure you get on the list. Our teachers work hard for our kiddos, and the least we can do is make sure they are well fed one afternoon each month.) Fall pictures are Friday the 16th and the school’s first spirit night is on Wednesday the 28th. Add in things like Grandparents Day, National Ice Cream Cone Day and the start of the State Fair and we have one packed month ahead of us!
