APO OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHT -September 30th – 7pm-9pm
Come one, come all, to a night of movie fun for ALL!!! The students voted and we saw loud and clear that everyone wanted to watch MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU for their Fall Movie Night on Friday, September 30th from 7pm to 9pm. Tickets cost $5.00 and will be on sale during their lunch periods on Wed (9/28) – Fri (9/30). Glow items will be on sale at the event, as well as snacks, candy, and drinks. In the event of rain the event would take place in the gymnasium.
Volunteers will be needed to help set up, man concession during, and clean up after the event. The APO is also asking for donations of drinks and snack items.
Here’s the sign up link and thank you in advance for your generosity!
WARRIOR WAY ASSEMBLIES
On Wednesday (Teams 1, 2 & 3) and Thursday (Teams 4, 5 & 6) the school is holding morning Warrior Way Assemblies. Our Warrior Way Assemblies are designed to focus on the three principles of our school: Respect, Effort and Action. Please consider taking a moment tonight to ask your child about the assembly, which we hope was a fun and high energy event for all.
To help with this discussion, here are some questions you could consider asking them:
1) What group performed the entrance music for the assembly?
2) What does research show happens if you read for 14 minutes per day?
3) How can the school earn the privilege of wearing costumes to school on Halloween?
4) We watched this video as a group. Who is Chase? What challenge did he face? What goal did he set for himself?
5) Which group was recognized as “Ultimate Warriors” for this marking period?
Thank you for your interest in the assembly and your continued support of our school community.
AFTER SCHOOL – WE ARE WARRIORS SPORTS EVENT – THURS OCT. 6 – 2:30-5:15PM

On Thursday, October 6th students will stay after with a teacher from 2:40-3:20. Students must make arrangements with a teacher in advance and plan to stay with that teacher for that time. Then from 3:20-4:00 all students report to the Recess Area where snacks and drinks will be for sale by the APO. Students are encouraged to bring a few dollars to buy snacks and drinks. The basketball court will be open and students can enjoy time with friends at the picnic tables.
