Reminder: Book Character Day Tomorrow
Tomorrow, October 31st, we will be having Book Character Day at Arbor Heights. The children have been encouraged to bring an item, costumes, etc. to school that goes along with a character from a book they enjoy. Nothing elaborate is needed. Our schedule for the afternoon will be as follows:

     1:30 - 1:50    Children put on costumes and visit with each
                    other on the playground.
     1:55 - 2:15    Two parades will take place.  The children
                    will be led through classrooms so that all can
     2:15 - 2:30    Room exchanges.  Children form neighboring
                    classrooms can get together and talk about
                    their characters.
     2:30 - 3:00    Room parties.  Treats are being provided.

     The morning Kindergarten will have their own parade/party.

Wiring Project Nears Completion
Phase 1 of our buildings wiring plan took a giant step toward completion last Saturday as 35 volunteers worked from dawn until dusk putting up raceway and pulling wires. Very soon we will have internet access to one half of our classrooms. Thank you very much to all who helped out last weekend.

We have been given quite a bit of beautiful carpet which we plan to use to replace the badly worn carpet in the library, the upstairs hallway and the office. If you have any expertise in laying carpet, or would be willing to help out with some of the "muscle work" please call Debbie Kerns (937-6709) or the school (933-5350). We hope to be ready to tackle this project soon. Thank you.

Picture Retake Day
Picture retake day is scheduled for Friday, November 7th. If you need retakes please bring the picture packet and/or money to school on November 7th. If your child was absent on picture day, there are order forms in the office with package price information.
