Message from Mrs. Graf

November 5, 2018  Week 15

School Messenger


Good afternoon Explorers,

This is Principal Graf with your weekly update.  It’s week 15 of school. Interims will be sent home this week on November 5, 2018.  Along with the interim you will get the updated school-family contracts. Please review and send back with further suggestions.  


This Week:

  • Field Trips:  Much of the parent input at the end of last year was about field trips.  Each grade level will be taking field trips this year. Payments must be made in order to secure charter buses and reservations to the wonderful sites for visits.  If down-payments cannot be made, the field trip will be cancelled, as the tour company requires a down payment for the beach and Washington DC trips.


Looking Ahead:


  • 11/1: Digital Family Night
  • 11/5: Quarter 2 Interim
  • 11/6: 2 Hour Delay: Get out and Vote!
  • 11/8:   Picture Make Ups
