We thank you for your support and appreciate your sacrifice in finding alternative options for your children during the 11-day workstoppage. Rest assure that we are all working diligently to recuperate the instructional timelost.We have the new date for both Picture Day and the Mother-Son Dance. Both events willoccur on Friday, November 15th. The dance will be held from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Pleaseconsider purchasing a ticket for this fun event.Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday, November 13th from 11:15 a.m-2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Please plan on attending the conferences, this is the
ideal time to discuss with your child’s teacher his/her academic progress and come up with
a plan if they are off-track. We will also host our C.A.P.S meeting on this date following theconferences. Our C.A.P.S meeting will be from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.As you can see on the calendar, Wednesday, November 27

Parents the weather is getting chillier outside and I’m asking that all students wear thicker
coats and have with them a hat and gloves. We will follow CPS policy for outdoor recess. I
have attached the policy to this month’s calendar.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to stop by the main office
