    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!  I am happy that 2nd grade is heading into our break having completed some amazing 3-D paper portraits.  Students finished them with patterns, warm and cool colors to create little freestanding abstract busts of their heads. These will be on display in our showcases after break.  I hope that you can see them if you are in the building.  

    It is also time for Original Works.  Our alphabet soup projects that we created at the beginning of the year in which the students chose a message to write in their soup bowls, are ready to order on products through the PTO fundraiser.  Here is a message from our PTO:


    Dear Parents, 

    Original Artworks Fall fundraiser has started. Please check with your students if they have not yet brought home the order instructions for the online orders and remind them to get them. This Monday’s Eagle has details for the online orders and also info on the classes participating in the Fall Fundraiser. 

    The deadline for the order is 11/18/2021. There will be correspondence in the next Eagle as well.
