School Store Schedule

Week of October 22nd:

Monday - room 10

Tuesday - room 15

Wednesday - room 19

Thursday - room 8

Friday - room 6 

Mac's Mobile Cart visits 2nd-5th grade classrooms on specific days between 8:30-8:45.  Students may purchase small items like erasers, pencils, pens, small note pads, etc.  If there is a late opening or a school closing, the school store will not be open that day and we will resume our regular schedule on the next school day.  If we can, we will offer a "make up" day for classrooms that miss due to unforeseen circumstances, but that is not always possible.  Most items cost between $.25 and $1.00.  If your children are planning to shop on their scheduled day, please send coins and/or small bills.    Thank you!

Families are invited to celebrate Halloween a little early.  This event goes from 6 pm to 8 pm.  There will be a DJ and a jack-o-lantern contest (optional, bring your carved pumpkin with you if you'd like to participate).  Flyers went home in the students' folders.  Please return the bottom portion of the flyer with $5 per family ASAP if you plan to attend.  The New Haven Pizza Truck will be there!
