NEXT WEEK’S NEWS
Whole School Academy of Sciences Field Trip Next Tuesday– No Study Hall!
Our last day before Thanksgiving Break the whole school will visit the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. Students will spend time with their big buddies and their classmates enjoying the exhibits. If you have volunteered to chaperone and have a membership, please let your child’s teacher know.
After school, there will be Extended Day available, but no Study Hall. Study Hall students will be dismissed at 3 to go home or to join Extendo and be picked up at 4:30.
There WILL Be Extended Day Next Wednesday
Thank you for your responses to our Extended Day enrollment form. We will be open from 8am to 5pm on Wednesday, November 27.

Enrollment closes tonight. As always, there is no charge for Extended Day if you have a contract and there is a $50 charge for drop-ins.
Please note that we will close Extendo at 5pm so that everyone can begin his or her holiday.
Parent Teacher Conferences, December 12 and 13
We are holding Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday and Friday, December 12th & 13th. School will be dismissed at noon and conferences will be from 12:30 to 5 on both days.
You will be able to register your child in to Extended Day for the afternoon or you can drop off your child, for no charge, while you attend your conference.
In order to best accommodate sibling conferences and help with special circumstances, we are continuing to schedule these conferences by hand. Thank you to everyone who already returned the completed forms.
If you haven’t turned in your choices yet, you can print a form here or get one in the office if it’s easier.
Also, if you would rather skip the conference this time and have your child’s report card mailed, please check off that option on the form and return it.
Confirmations of days and time will be sent home after Thanksgiving.
