October has been a very eventful month here at FVMS.
Thank you to everyone who participated in all of our October fundraisers. Our for Small Hands, Holiday Plants, Children’s Resale, SCRIP and Colonial Cafe events were all profitable and fun for everyone! We all appreciate you supporting our school. Thank you to Jan DuRall and the Fundraising Committee for all of your work on these events. We appreciate everyone who came to Bring Your Parent to School. We hope you all enjoyed the look into your children’s classroom.
In November we have some exciting events planned as well. Our Dine Out Day is November 14th at Funway in Batavia. November 10th, we will have our third annual “Ladies Night Out”. This is an evening of socializing, shopping and snacks that supports FVMS and shortens holiday shopping lists at the same time.Thank you to everyone who has come in to observe in your child’s classroom in preparation for conferences. Even twenty minutes of observing are so helpful in understanding what their days are like and what they are working on.
If you have not already set an appointment to observe and then meet with your child’s classroom teacher, please do so. This is a great opportunity to hear about their days in the classroom and get to know their teachers a little better as well. My door is always open as well for questions or concerns.
The weather is slowly turning colder, so please remember to send appropriate outdoor clothing labeled with their name for your child every day. We try to get outside every day that the weather permits. Also, the extra clothes that your child has here may need a change to warmer (or larger!) choices. Please feel free to send in a fresh supply and we can return the summer items.
November 21st is the date for our annual Thanksgiving Feast. The children invite their parents to join them for a “Feast” they have prepared themselves. After the Feast is over, school is closed until Monday, November 27th, for Thanksgiving break.
I know that I speak for all of the FVMS staff when I say how grateful we are to be able to be here with your children every day and to partner with you in guiding them as they grow and learn. We all appreciate your support that you provide for us here at school.
