Raffle tickets and information about the bookfair will be
coming home this week in your Thursday envelopes.
The completed raffle tickets are turned in to Diane in the office, and every day of the bookfair Diane will do a drawing to award $10.00 to 2 lucky students that can be spent at the bookfair.

If you are picking up your child early on Wednesday, before lunch, please send a note to your child's teacher to alert staff. It is getting to be too much of a disruption otherwise.
Thank You!
Start gathering those Jikyuso pledges from friends & family -
gotta catch 'em all!
