Student of the week-Caterina Hernandez 

 Morning Care is provided by Mrs. Becker this week.  

The temperature is dropping! Make sure you send a light jacket with your student! Please label their sweatshirts and jackets!

After School STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program-We are in the process of gathering numbers to see if any of our students would be interested in an after school STEM program. “STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications” (livescience.com).  We are still finalizing details and seeing if there is enough interest. Please email Mr. Mitchell at dmitchell@gccsda.com if you are interested.

Car Wash Fundraiser-Don’t forget about our Tidal Wave fundraiser! The funds will be used to improve our playground! The fundraiser will end on October 26, 2018. 

Dad’s Night-Our annual Dad’s night is coming up on October 25 at 6 p.m.  This is a fun evening where the students and their Dads will eat, play and work on a project.  There will also be a campfire and S’mores! If your child’s father is unable to attend, a grandparent, God parent, uncle, etc. may come in his place. 

Donations for Dad’s Night-Here are the items that are needed for the Dad’s night meal: All beef hot dogs (vegetarian hot dogs will be provided), hot dog buns, graham crackers, Hershey bars, and large marshmallows

Please bring Dad’s Night donations in on October 22 and 23.

Friday Hot Lunch-We need volunteers to help serve hot lunch on Fridays.  Please contact Emily Grubbs at 770-328-8118 if you can help.
