Highlight of the Week
Halloween was certainly the highlight of the week!  The children enjoyed playing games with their classmates and parading around the school in their costumes.  The creativity displayed on Wednesday was amazing!  I thank our parents for organizing classroom parties and watching our parade.  The children were thrilled to have you here.  Many of the students chose to write about their Halloween later in the week. 

Correction on GRE Base Program
During a delayed start, Gold Rush before and after school program called BASE will open at 8:00am.  Base does accept drop ins on late start days. You must be enrolled in the BASE Program for the 2012-13 school year in order to use the childcare service.  If you think you will need the BASE Program- Please turn in enrollment documentation now, so we can accept your child on those hectic days.
