Drivers for Pumpkin Patch on Oct. 22:  parent(s) of:  Aleah(2), Cali(2), Gracyn(2), Kendra(6), Gareth(4), Jarrett(3), Maia(3), Trevor(5) and Jake(6).

It is great to have so many volunteers!  However, we have too many drivers now, so if there are a few drivers that would like to skip this trip, please send a note in agenda or e-mail me(  Unfortunately, we have to pay for adults on this field trip even though you are helping supervise!) I have allotted for 5 adults to be paid for by the small Field Trip fund in the office, so any extra will cost our class account.  Again, if you want to take a break on this trip, let me know.  Thanks for your understanding.

I will confirm all drivers closer to Oct. 22.

There is no homework this weekend unless a student wants to work on Poetry or if a student has not read to page 170 in Rats of Nimh.

Have a yummy Thanksgiving weekend!
