No School On Friday
The Seattle Public Schools will be closed for students on Friday, October 10th because of a statewide inservice day. Teachers will have the opportunity to participate in numerous staff development activities. The schools will reopen at the regular time on Monday, October 13th.
Because we will be closed on Friday, the PTA will be selling popcorn on Thursday this week.

The PTA will hold it's second meeting of the year tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. The one hour meeting will be held in the lunchroom with childcare available in the library and the gym. I hope you can join us.
