THE HORRIBLE HERDMANS ARE BACK!!!!!

Mark your calendars for Tuesday evening, November 4, at 6:00 P.M.!  The 7th graders are reprising their roles from last year's hit The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! in another hilarious misadventure by Barbara Robinson, The Best Halloween Ever  Scheduling difficulties have forced us to schedule the play AFTER Halloween, but that's okay with us!  This year we will be in the gym instead of the cafeteria, so come early to get a good seat!  We will be auctioning off front row seats to support the Class of 2016, so get ready to bid!  We hope to see you all there on November 4 ... just don't tell the Horrible Herdmans!!!

URBANNA OYSTER FESTIVAL – Friday, November 7 & Saturday, November 8

The music will be rockin’ and the crowd will be hoppin’, but we will be sad and have less fun if you can’t work the booth to raise money for our children.  So, keep those sign-ups coming!  Thank you, thank you to the families who have responded so far, but we haven’t heard from 41 families.  We are well on our way to having a full roster of volunteers, but we’re not anywhere near where we need to be.  Sorry, you’re not off the hook just yet!  Please have mercy on your chairs and save us having to spend an evening making phone calls by sending in those forms.

If you have not signed up yet, please check your child’s backpack today for a bright-colored flyer with the work schedule as of last Friday.  There is a sign-up sheet on the reverse side just in case you didn’t receive the emails Ayron has been sending out.  If you haven’t already responded, please consider how you may be able to help and return the form to Christi Garrett C/O Tyler Garrett 8th Grade via backpack mail, or go online and sign up on the Sign-Up Genius as soon as possible.  If you have any questions, call Christi Garrett at 690-3874 or Diane Pierce at 512-6471.
