Safe Halloween Candy Drive
Thank you to all the families and students who donated bags to our Safe Halloween Event.  You collected 542 bags!!  That's a lot of candy!!  Everyone had a wonderful time thanks to your generosity.!  7th Grade won the pizza party - they brought in 140 bags!!
Missing Sweatshirts
It's getting cooler and students are beginning to wear their red hoodies to school.  Please be sure to put names in your child's clothing, as they all look alike.  Also, please take a moment to check your child's clothing to ensure that they have the correct sweatshirt - we have had many families looking for lost clothing.  The next outerwear order will go to the shop on November 6th.
Pie Fundraiser
Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner.  Need a dessert?  The 7th grade class is selling pies from The Pie Company.  The students are raising money for their  Washington DC Trip in 2018.  There are so many wonderful choices (pies come frozen and last in the freezer for up to one year).  Find a 7th grader, stop by the office or Room 7 to place your order.  Orders need to be placed by November 7 and available for pickup on November 15th from 3-5pm at the school.  
Crab Feed Date Change
The Crab Feed date is being changed from January 13 to January 27 due to a conflict with other Manteca area crab feeds.
