Hello to all our families!
This has been a good week to be at school. From apples to costumes, to chariot races we had it all going on.
It was very exciting to see the apple orders arrive this week. As I mentioned in the last update, the school sold 160 boxes, which was well above our initial estimate. I hope you are all enjoying the apples, whether by themselves or in baking.
We had an exciting time watching our high school teams compete in the chariot races on Thursday. Teams created a cardboard “chariot” that needed to support a team member who was pulled down a 20 meter track. We competed virtually with other schools and were able to take a bronze, silver and gold in various levels of competition. Congratulations to all our teams!
Students had a great time showing off all their costumes on Thursday. It is so wonderful to see all the creative expressions and fun outfits. We also know that some of these costumes will be worn on the weekend, but wanted to make sure families know not to send more than a piece or two of candy in as snacks. With our long days, kids can get really worn out by the sugar high and struggle to finish their day. Also, please make sure candy is nut free. Thank you for your help in this.
We also had our re-takes this Thursday, and it was certainly nice to get in those students who had missed the first day. If you have an order that you have not brought in, the last call is to have them to us first thing on Monday. We are sending out all of our orders that morning.
And of course, a huge congratulations to all our volleyball teams on their successes this week. As we approach the end of the season, keep watch for information about zone playoffs and tournaments.
A few other reminders as well.
November hot lunch orders are due by Friday Oct 29th
Donations for the auction fundraiser need to be in by Monday so we can have them organized for the silent auction next weekend. Let your friends and family know about the online auction to support Christian education, sports and the arts
Please ensure all poinsettia orders are in by Nov 4th. This is in support of our grad ceremony in the spring.
As always, I am excited to hear about what is happening in our larger school community, whether it is the first elk you’ve shot, or larger family celebrations. It is so neat to hear about what is going on in our students’ lives outside of school.
I wish you a very restful time this weekend together as families. God bless you all.
Quinn Barreth, Principal
