Fall Clean-up Crew
I want to thank the volunteers who were here bright and early last
Saturday to help with our annual fall clean-up. The place looks great!
We'll see you (and others?) in the spring.
Highly Capable Student Program
Our district offers two programs for students who perform at very
high levels on achievement and aptitude tests. To enter the SPECTRUM SC
or ACCELERATED PROGRESS PROGRAM (APP) next fall, a student must be
nominated now. Nomination forms for students in kindergarten through
seventh grade are available at school offices and Student Assignment
Service Centers (SASC's). Nominations must be returned to a school office
or the office of Highly Capable Student Programs by Wednesday, November 5,
Reading Incentive Program
Each month our school tries to emphasize the importance of reading
in a different way. In the month of October excitement will build toward
Book Character Day. You will get details about this day later, but
briefly, on October 31st the children have a chance to dress up as a
character from their favorite book.
There is also a parade on Saturday, October 18th in which all West
Seattle schools participate. Children will have a chance to wear their
book character costumes then so you might want to start planning now.
Details will be shared with the children during their library classes.
NetDay - Help Wanted
NetDay is a national effort to encourage volunteers and businesses
to assist K-12 schools across our country with internet wiring projects.
This year NetDay falls on Saturday, October 25th. The Bon Marche' and
Microsoft have been helping our school with Phase 1 of this project and we
are asking for your help on October 25th. We need people to work between
the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. that day. You do not need to be an
electrician as we will have experts here to tell us what to do. If you
can help out for a few hours that day please let me know by returning the
form below and I will call you with details. Thank you.
