I hope everyone survived Halloween. The other holidays will be here before you know it! I just wanted to share with you some updates and future events at the school.
I'd like to invite parents to a chat with me this Friday at 9:00 a.m. We will be talking about student safety at this chat and discussing what is currently in place for safety and what else the District is working on. The chat will be held in the Junior High Conference Room!

NEW LUNCH GUIDELINES - NOTE FROM MRS. SMITH, FOOD SERVICE MANAGER
As you know, the lunch menu has changed as of Monday, November 5, 2012. Junior High students have been the most effected by these changes. The food service, Ceres, is taking the lunch tickets on the Junior High side and honoring the amount they have left, to use for ala cart meals. When this amount has been depleted, the food service will let the student know. Parents can then decide on what they would like to do for their lunch after the original amount has been depleted. A lunch ala-cart menu has been attached for your viewing. If you have any questions or concerns please email Mrs. Jen Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 815-444-4265.
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES
Conferences will take place on November 19, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and on November 20, 2012 from 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
