Tomorrow, Halloween, will be a FREE free dress day (no costumes, please). As a fundraiser for Adopt-a-Family, we are selling tattoos for $1 each; there is no limit, but only 2 can be applied, and the rest will be sent home. Students can bring money tomorrow morning if they would still like to purchase tattoos.

We will be going to Mass on Wednesday, All Saints’ Day and again on Friday as usual. Friday is a half-day; we will enjoy our annual Saints Parade (grades K-2 will be dressed as saints) in the morning after Mass.

HOMEWORK (due Monday): This week students should complete ixL Math skills D 4 and E 1, as well as Language skill B 13. Students will be doing Fluency week 11.
