Speaking of Halloween, we hope to share a happy and safe events this coming Monday with everyone.  Be on the lookout for Mr. Sheldon wearing his costume that the students choose recently in a school-wide vote.  Please see our recent mailers regarding what is appropriate to wear to school for costumes.

 Hola Ideal familias,

 Gracias por una semana más emocionante en Ideal Primaria usted. Tuvimos una gran reunión de PTO este lunes y encantados con los esfuerzos de recaudación de fondos en circulación de nuestras familias que apoyarán una visita del autor a finales de este año! Además, nuestra semana del Listón Rojo fue informativo y divertido. Por último, terminamos nuestra semana con un nuevo TRADICIÓN historias de miedo la noche. Regalamos más de 100 tazas de palomitas de maíz a los estudiantes solos, por lo que sabemos que este evento fue muy concurrido. ¡Muchas gracias a los miembros de nuestro personal para la creación de este evento increíble para promover la sana diversión de Halloween y la alfabetización!

Hablando de Halloween, esperamos compartir una serie de eventos felices y seguras este próximo lunes con todo el mundo. Esté en el puesto de observación para el Sr. Sheldon vestido con su traje que los estudiantes eligen recientemente en una votación en toda la escuela. Por favor, consulte nuestros anuncios publicitarios recientes respecto a lo que es apropiado para llevar a la escuela para los trajes.

Gracias tanto por ser una comunidad de apoyo y comprometido. Por favor, háganos saber si hay algo que podemos hacer para promover la comunicación y la colaboración positiva. Adjunto encontrará todos los materiales de la carpeta del viernes para asegurar que todos nuestros mensajes lo hace en casa.
