This was a tough week for all of us; trapped inside for 2 recess times makes for long days. We don't control the weather but did make some schedule changes this summer so that 3 days a week all our kiddos can get in the gym for recess time when we're stuck inside. We've had 3 already this school year because of the rain. I'm hoping for a warm December and January. :)

Please remember the Color Run for PTO this Sunday, 3:00 is when it will start. It sounds like we'll have a great day of weather and this is a big fund raiser for the organization. They'll let you sign up the day of the run I'm sure.

Next week is Homecoming week for the High School. We'll participate in the the dress up day on Friday, the 20th. That day is "Tommie Pride" day so all the green and white we can find will make for a fun Friday for all of us. The High School is also nice enough to invite all of us to come to the Pep Rally on Friday, we appreciate how the high school shares their time us for that day. The football game Friday night is against Oak Grove High School and it starts at 7:00 p.m.

Have a great weekend, call or email anytime with questions.
