Halloween Snack Thanks to Hospitality, the students enjoyed a Halloween snack, while enjoying some spooky cobwebs and ghostly decorations. Thank you to Mrs. Candice Driscoll and Mrs. Gina Pattison and to all the parents who helped prepare and serve the treat.
Race for Education We've had an unbelievable run this year for our Race goal. We have blown past our initial goal of $35k, as well as our second goal of $40k, and we are now only hundreds away from our ultimate reach goal of $50k. This has been a record setting, banner year for Race.
We can't thank Mrs. Jackie Alvarez, and her team of volunteers enough, for their hard work and dedication.
We hope the students enjoyed the four mascots who came to kickoff Race. Thank you to Kenny Rios, Michael Mueller, and Santiago Ralston for making that experience so awesome!
New Recess Equipment The PTO recently purchased new recess equipment for all students to enjoy. There are hula hoops, skip its, jump-ropes, basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, whiffle bats and balls, and footballs. Hopefully, the new colorful assortment will stay organized on the new cart.
Original Works Mrs. Kristin Lynch has sent STS's artwork off to be made into beautiful pieces, just in time for Christmas. The orders should be delivered the week of December 4. Mrs. Lynch plans to get them to the students shortly after that.
Santa's Workshop Soon everyone's favorite mini store will be back and open for business. This year, the dates are December 5-7; it will take place in the Music Room; thanks Mrs. Salinas, for giving up such a great space. VIRTUS parents, look for volunteer opportunities to help your class with their Christmas shopping. Shortly after the Thanksgiving break, envelopes for money will be sent home with students. It is really helpful for volunteers when we know how many people students are buying for and what the spending range is for each.
