Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed a sunny and relaxing October break. It’s been wonderful to have the school bubbling with lots of laughter, music, and learning once more. Thanks again to our staff and a small group of students who made our vacation camp full of fun! Here at EFDM, over the break, we jumped in piles of leaves painted with apples and on pumpkins, took a nature walk, and enjoyed plenty of extended forest play.
Please consider your nominations for our School Council Parent Representatives. We would like to have all nominees emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, October 29th. This is a wonderful chance to build connections between teachers, parents, and administration. Scroll down for more details about the School Council!
Picture Re-take Day has been scheduled for Monday, October 25th. Please find the link to the online gallery from the original Picture Day below to view your child’s portraits, and thank you for supporting local artists!
Our traveling trunk exhibit on “People of the Dawn” will be arriving early next week. Check back in the next newsletter for more info on when and how your family can peruse this temporary museum in La Maison!
Details regarding this year’s Halloween Parade plan are fully outlined below; we can’t wait to see your costumes! It’s always a “treat” of an event that the students look forward to each year.
Along with this week’s article regarding the IB, we are announcing a recently decided upon Professional Day to support our teachers. As a result, there will be no school Friday, November 19th, to accommodate the teachers’ training. Would you please use this advance notice to plan accordingly? We will consider this additional professional day and any potential snow days in determining the end-of-year calendar when the time comes.
As always, please reach out to Emily in the office with any questions: email@example.com
