Our first PTA meeting of the year is Tuesday, October 2nd at 6:30 p.m. in the library.
PTA gives every parent a voice! It provides an opportunity to be more involved in your child's education and to make a difference at Candalaria. This month we will vote on our PTA operating budget. There will be free childcare in the gym.
See you there!
Boot Scootin' Huskies!
The Fund$ Run is Thursday, October 11th!
We will run, rain or shine, so make sure your student is ready for anything. Families are welcome to cheer on their students! Visit the PTA website for classroom run times and more information!
After the run, pledge envelopes will be sent home so you can start gathering your pledged funds. The first class to turn in all their money will earn a cookie party! All funds are due no later than October 26th.
We need more volunteers! Visit our online signup to see the opportunities, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On October 3-5th, the 5th grade will head off to Outdoor School for a few days of fun in the woods. Some of the activities include: fishing, archery, ropes courses to build group connection, camp crafts, evening fire circles, and forest side science lessons.
Thank you for supporting the 5th grade and helping to raise funds for this unforgettable experience
Wednesday, October 17th, 6-8 pm
Bring your family to the gym for some fun, hands-on science activities! There will be building, mixing and experimenting as students learn principles of science and some of its applications.
The Book Fair will also be open so make sure you head up to the library to see what is available!
POPCORN FRIDAY ISBACK!
Every Friday, students can order a bag of fresh popped popcorn, delivered right to their classroom.
Popcorn is just $1 and proceeds support events at Candalaria.
If you are able to volunteer, please sign up HERE.
THE BOOK FAIR IS COMING!
Our Fall Book Fair is October 15-19, 2018. Each day the fair is open before school 8:30-9:05 am and after school 3:30-4:30 pm. It is also open during Science Night on Thursday the 17th from 6-8 pm.
Background checks are good for five years, so if you submitted an application when your child entered Kindergarten, you will need to submit a new one when they enter 5th grade.
