Wrightwood School Halloween Carnival
Saturday, Oct. 18 1:00-5:00
Monday, October 14, 2014
The Annual PTG Halloween Carnival is coming up fast. The Carnival is a little earlier than usual this year, on Saturday, Oct. 18. We really need parents to sign up to help out at the booths. Most classes have a list on the classroom door, and we need you parents to fill out those lists! If everyone chips in, it's just a 30-minute shift. If people don't sign up, then one or two people have to work the booth the whole day. Please do your part.
We also need parents to support the classroom baskets. These baskets are a great fundraiser, because everyone wants to be a winner! Please contribute to your classroom basket, support our Carnival, help out your room moms, and remember that this is all for the benefit of the students!
Congratulations to Jessica Decker for becoming the Secretary of our PTG Board. I sincerely appreciate all the parents who step up to help us offer the most complete school experience possible for our students.
The PTG Halloween Carnival is Saturday, Oct. 18, from 1:00-5:00. This is always one of the most fun events of the year, and it takes an entire team effort to make the Carnival a success. Please do your part to sign up to work a short shift at your class's booth, and we also appreciate donations to the class baskets. These baskets bring great excitement and fun to the Carnival, and they're a big fundraiser for us, too! Be sure to join us for the Carnival. Kids - and adults - are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes for fun!
Measure L and the District Facilities Master Plan
Measure L is a school bond initiative that will appear on the November ballot. The Snowline Superintendent, Luke Ontiveros, recently spoke to parents about the district's Facilities Master Plan and how Measure L would impact every school and student in the district. Voters are encouraged to learn more about the District Master Facilities Plan on the district website at www.snowlineschools.com .
Raccoon Running Club
Congratulations to some of our Running Club superstars, who will be representing Wrightwood Elementary at the Mt. SAC Cross Country Invitational on Friday, Oct. 17. Good luck to Drew Walczynski, Caleb Pratt, Sky Nelson, Lily Thorne, Payton Cornell, Jaden Mueller, Mia Heim, Tess McKenzie, and Dana Evartt!
Speaking of running, the Frightwood 5K and 10K of Terror are on Saturday, Oct. 25, beginning on the Wrightwood Elementary upper field. The Frightwood 5K is a great community event sponsored by the Wrightwood Running Club. The event benefits the Mike McKay Foundation, the Serrano High School Drama Department, the Wrightwood CERT, and Wrightwood Elementary's Raccoon Running Club. There are runners and walkers - and even dogs! - of all abilities who join in this enjoyable morning. Please come be a part of it!
The Running Club hits the starting line on Thursday, Sept. 11, at 7:20 a.m. on the upper field! We had almost 100 kids in our Running Club last year, with many parents joining in the fun. The Running Club is every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:20-7:50 on the upper field, and we track the miles students run and recognize them for every five miles. The mileage kids run is a source of pride for them, and we love that they are starting their day off in such a positive manner. Kids who eat breakfast in our cafeteria are released from the Running Club in plenty of time to eat. Feel free to join your student and come start your day off with a little exercise, friendship, and fun!
Beginning after Labor Day, State Hwy 2 will be part of a re-paving project from Cardinal Road to Hwy 138, and from Mountain Road to Beekley Road. The project will last about eight weeks, and there will be a flagging operation with alternating lane closures. It remains to be seen how this will affect your commute to and from school, but please plan ahead to arrive at school on-time.
