Parent Education Series - Wednesday 10/25 6:30 

Siblings: Handling Conflict and Building their Relationship Sibling conflict can be constructive! Through conflict, kids can learn how to tell someone how they feel, how to listen, and how to problem-solve and compromise. Having a sibling is an opportunity for growth, but only if you let those lessons happen. Come to this workshop to learn a step-by-step guide to get you through sibling drama. Darlynn Childress is a former middle and high school teacher and the mother of two sons. A trained parent educator and gifted storyteller, she gives workshops throughout SoCal and offers private coaching nationwide.

Halloween Parade 
Tuesday, October 31st @ 8:30am is our Halloween Parade!  Please remember that costumes should be elementary school appropriate, keeping in mind our youngest students, so nothing too scary or gory. Masks will be permitted during the parade only IF they do not impair vision. (Safety is our number one concern.)  Students should come to school in costume and bring a change of clothes to finish out the school day. Please remember that no adults are allowed in student restrooms, so please help your children with their costumes at home.  Thank you for your cooperation.
