Brrrr!  It’s time to break out those winter jackets, hats, and gloves!  Please remember that we have a strong wind that whips across our playground, always making it colder than the reported temperature.


Speaking of winter clothing, it’s time to clean out our lost and found!  I’ve attached a video recording of all the sweatshirts and jackets currently in the lost and found.  Please claim what belongs to you.




Friday, November 10, 2017:  No School for Veterans Day. I hope you can find a way to honor our veterans!


Thursday, November 16, 2017:  Fueling Our School!  Stop for gas at the Derby Line Irving and Circle K will donate some of the proceeds to our school.  This is true whenever you fill up at Pump # 1, but on this day, between 3-8pm, we get proceeds for every gallon at ANY pump!  Bring your receipt from November 16, (with your name and printed on it) to the box in the front lobby by Nov. 20, and we will draw a name for a $50.00 gas card. We use the money for our Winter Activities, Farm to School, Tiger Paw Pride, and Project Based Learning Programs.  Last year we earned $2,000.00 – thanks for your support!  We will have three more Fuel Up Days this year.  In addition, follow the Circle K Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CircleKGreatLakes/ to enter our contest and have a chance to win one Fitbit Flex 2 Activity Tracker!
