Awards Ceremony coming up……

Friday, October 25th in Manatee's Cafeteria. Invitations will come home in your child's silver take home folder is he/she is receiving an award! Remember there are 4 total ceremonies during our school year. So all students have a chance to be recognized. The categories are Principal's Award for overall outstanding performance inside and outside the classroom, Scholastic Award for students that are trying their very best to grow academically, Character Awards – this nine weeks we will recognize students that demonstrate Respect and Responsibilities in their actions toward peers and adults. Congratulations to this group of award winners! You deserve to be proud of your actions!



Early Release Day – Wednesday, October 16th – 1:15 --- just a reminder!


Harvest Party – October 31st …..

Thank you to the parents who have already responded to the note that came home in your child's folder yesterday!

Your support is so appreciated. I have talked with our class regarding behavior. Between now and the day of the party, if any child moves his/her card to yellow or red the possibility is high that he/she will not be attending the party. I will find an alternative location such as the library or another teacher's classroom for that student to do work in while our party is going on. I appreciate your support in this important matter as proven good behavior will assure all students in Mrs. Forester's and Mrs. Gravina's class will have a great time at the party! (Note: no costumes, face art, etc. please).
