Open House

Thank you to all of the parents and families who joined us for our Open House and Harvest Dinner on Thursday evening. We had 126 people complete the Scavenger Hunt and enter the Farm to School Raffle. And the winners are....

Gracie From Investigators won a Mum Plant.
Evan from Pre-K won Apple Sauce.
Jared from Investigators won a Mum Plant.
Marie from the Travelers won Pickles.
Jordon from Explorers won a Mum Plant.

Congratulations to our winners!


Beginning Band students have lessons today and tomorrow. Please remember your instrument and lesson book on your lesson day. 

CC, Emma, and Noah have lessons this morning.

String instrument lessons will be starting next Monday afternoon. If your parents need to rent an instrument, please see Mr. Mehaffey for the rental info, if you have not done so already.

Fill Out Your Codesmyths Applications!

Just another reminder to get your Codesmyths application filled out by this coming Wednesday (October 1)!  Again, we only have room for about 16 students in the class, so use your best writing skills — spelling, punctuation, and clear, creative writing all count.

If you missed the kick-off event, you can still apply.  The applications instructions and form can be found here:  (you can also navigate to this by clicking "Signing Up" on the left side of the www.codesmyths.orgweb site).

NOTE:  Existing Codesmyths students who have already attended an entire year or more do not need to fill out the application; however, last year's Codesmyths students should check their email — you will find a survey that you do need to fill out.  If you did not make it through to the end of the course last year, you will need to fill out the regular application again.
Thank you very much.  Looking forward to seeing the old and new students alike!Mr. Roland,  Ms. Tagliamonte, Ms. Bertucci
