Holiday Store Next Tuesday the 11th

Hello all!  Next Tuesday the 11th we will be attending the middle school's annual holiday store!  This is a great way for your student to support the middle school as they raise money for their next trip and for everyone to get a start on some holiday gifts!  *Please note this is a change from the letter that went home prior saying the store was on the 4th.  If your child brings money today, we will store it in a safe place and return it to them to use next week!*

Hilarious Halloween

Our Halloween party was a great success!  We had a blast playing games, acting silly, eating food, and making crafts!  Everyone's costumes looked great.  We want to extend a big thanks to all the parents who helped out with their time and donations!

Did You Noah?
Why Fire Turns Blue?

You may know that fire turns blue when it gets hot enough,
but have you ever wondered why? Fire is an event, not a thing. It
needs oxygen to “live”.  A low-level oxygen fire is orange. The
higher the oxygen level, the more blue it becomes. The fact that
blue flames are hotter than orange flames is a partial myth. Blue
flames can still be more hot, but orange flames can be too. Flames
even sometimes turn white!

Parent Teacher Sign-Ups

Parent-Teacher Conferences will be the week of October 15-19!  See picture for times.  To keep things simple, we use a manual sign up on the language room door. Tonight is Open House, a perfect time to sign up!   Please find a minute to pop in and sign the chart for your preferred time, or  you can choose a few times and have your child sign up for you!  If you have any questions, feel free to email us, but due to the volume of students in the room, we ask that parents not request times over email.  Thank you!
