Parent Bulletin

November 9, 2000

Dear Parents,

Our October Recognition Awards were given today at the Veteranís Day Assembly. I want to thank the guest speakers and all the students for their participation. Ms. Bailey gets special thanks for all her work in coordinating the musical portion of the performance.

Conferences start on Monday, November 13th. Please make every effort to keep your scheduled appointment. With lots of specialists and translators scheduled for conferences the change of a conference time sends staff scrambling to adjust schedules so they can accommodate everyone.

As the weather continues to change please remind students not leave coats, etc. on the playground.

Please be reminded that if you block a driveway while parking at the school you may be towed. Local residents have said they will call and have the vehicles towed if they are blocked in again.

I want to thank the parents who volunteered during the Pacific Science Center Van visit last Thursday. It was an exciting day that students will not soon forget.


Barry S. Dorsey

Hey all you bakers out there! We did a great job on the Open House Bake Sale. We topped $200 and I think we set a new bake sale record! Well, itís time to get those ovens warmed up again because there is a Family Fun Night coming up. What would it be like without a bake sale? Not much fun, thatís for sure. On Friday, November 17th there will be a Family Bingo Night. Please bring your baked goods to school Friday morning for pricing. You can either bring them to the office yourself or send them to school with your children. Remember, we can not accept anything that requires refrigeration. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help (I canít be there that night), please call me at 938-1765. Layne Bautista
