DRAGONS AND ESSAY POINTS

*Sips a Pumpkin Spice Latte and watches the leaves fall.* Actually, it’s black coffee. Are you feeling the fall festivities? We are! October is a long haul, but we’re through the thick of it. We’re excited for Halloween next week. To wrap up the week, we hosted a grade-level art contest. For extra points on their essay- or for a homework pass, Carrie judged the best drawn dragon for each grade!

Important Dates:

Friday, October 27 – 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm – Middle School Monster Mash Dance @ the Classrooms

Tuesday, October 31st – Fall Family Fest: Haven’t you always wished that there was a field day in the Fall?  A chance to come hang out with your kids, their teachers, and fellow parents and enjoy the changing leaves around campus?  Us too!  So we decided to make it happen with Fall Family Fest.  The WCDS Inaugural Fall Family Fest will be held on October 31st from 1:20-3:00 for 2nd-8th grades.

After lunch, children can change into costumes before the festivities begin. Parents, please join us for an afternoon of fun at the middle school branch campus anytime after 1:00.  We will begin our parade around the pool as soon as the children arrive at the park led by our grand marshals Ms. H and Maddie Kirchner, the winner of the Grand Marshal auction prize. Then, the children will rotate through different stations with their classmates. 

Friday, November 3 – No School
