 Today, we earned our 50th green ticket, which means that tomorrow, we’ve earned a Slippers Day!  Wear your comfy slippers all day, but be sure to bring shoes for PE and for the Scarecrow Scramble!!!
Also, please keep in mind that the last day of the term is next Friday, the 26th, so all pizza books must be read and book talks must be given by them for you to participate in the pizza party!  I hope we can all make it to this goal!
P.S. Please be sure to check events–there is a TON coming up right now!  🙂

1) Math (3-10): p. 65 all, p. 66 odds.  Please redo low-scoring quizzes.
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 
3) No spelling this week!

Items of Business:
*Class picture orders: The office asked us to let you know you can still order from LifeTouch online, and that they will also accept late paper orders until tomorrow.  If you missed it yesterday, a make-up photo day will be on November 15th.  
*Beach Party Leftovers: Apparently, 2 kiddie pools and some hoses are left here at school from the school Beach Party earlier this year.  If you donated either item and are missing it, please let us know!
*Automatic Lunch Payment Program:  to pay by credit/debit, go to providencehall.com & select the payment link to make recurring or one-time payments!  e-checks are available for a $0.49 fee, and credit cards have a 3% fee plus $0.50.
*P.E. shoes: Our PE teachers have asked us to remind students that if they are not wearing PE appropriate shoes on their PE days (Mon/Wed for us), they will sit out on some activities!  Please, no sandals or slick-bottomed boots like Uggs!
