Fall Festival Follow-up • Families did a great job getting the word out about Fall Festival. We had so many visitors, their cars filled Ridge Avenue from Main Street all the way to McKaig! Please return festival yard signs, car magnets, and raffle prize bags to the Gathering Place this week. This will help us in our constant efforts to be a sustainable school — saving us both money and preventing waste when we re-use the signage and bags next year. Thank you for all the Fall Festival support!

Class MeetingsWe enjoyed meeting with families last night to learn more about your children’s names and histories. Look for more information online in the coming days about the Name Project we began together at this first set of class meetings.
