Week of 11-19

Good morning Conwell Tigers,

Gobble Gobble Gobble!!!  We have a short week leading into the holiday weekend.

Tuesday, November 20, we are taking winter holiday pictures for a fundraiser for the Conwell Kidz Spring Musical.  It will be a free dress down for anyone who participates in the fundraiser.  Forms went home in backpacks on Friday.  Please see the attached forms if you haven't received one. 

Wednesday, November 21st is a half day for all students and staff.  It is a free dress down for all staff and students.  The building will be locked at 1:00pm.  We will start dismissal at 12:30pm outside.  Please make arrangements to have all children picked up after school.  There is no CASPER.

I am thankful for the opportunity and amazing responsibility of leading our school and providing a safe and secure facility for our children to learn. 

I am thankful for a dedicated staffulty that is committed to providing the children with an awesome educational experience.

It took most staff members between 3 and 8 hours to get home safely on Thursday night in horribly unsafe driving conditions.  Our staff attendance on Friday was excellent considering and it does not go unrecognized.  Thank you.

I am thankful for the supportive parents and the PTA for being advocates for our school, community, staffulty, and children.

Hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving with lots of friends, family, football, and full bellies.
