Jog-A-Thon, SSC, Spirit Week…

Good evening, Phoebe families,

I want to thank all those who have been actively collecting pledges and gearing up for our Jog-A-Thon. The timeline for the Jog-A-Thon has changed by one week. The virtual Jog-a-Thon will take place the week of November 16th-20th. Accordingly, the deadline to turn in pledges and the swag size form has been extended to Monday, October 26th. You have another week to get those pledges in. Also, the drive-thru swag pick up will be the week of November 9th. All supporting information can be found at this link.

Have you had a chance to look at our election ballot for School Site Council? Please take a moment to and vote for no more than two candidates. The election will close on Friday, October 23rd at 5:00pm. The two candidates with the most votes will be announced in next Sunday’s recorded message to families.

Don’t forget about Spirit Week during the week of October 26th – 30th. The daily themes ( illustrated on our website by on-call artists) are as follows:

Monday 26th – Silly Socks
Tuesday 27th – Silly Hair
Wednesday 28th – Mismatch
Thursday 29th – Dragon Pride
Friday 30th – Orange & Black

We had over 350 responses to our lunch time survey from families. The results are as follows: 52.8% of families would prefer to move our lunch time to 11:30am, 28.2% are agreeable to either lunch time, and 18.9% would like to keep the 10:55am lunch time. Listening to the feedback of our families, we will be moving our lunch time to 11:30am beginning Monday, October 26th, to give working families time to make adjustments to their schedules. This lunch time will be applicable to all students in 1st – 6th grade.

Thank you and have a wonderful evening.
