Aspen Updates October 6, 2017

There is NO SCHOOL for students on Friday, October 6 due to a Teacher Institute day.  We WILL be in school on Monday, October 9.  In past years, we have observed Columbus Day with a day off, but this year we WILL be in school on Monday, October 9.

Fire Prevention Week takes place October 8 – 13.  Aspen recently practiced a fire drill while being supervised by the Fire Department.  Our students did an awesome job.  Safety is our #1 concern!

Art Adventure begins the week of October 9.  Volunteers from our PTO will be coming into the classrooms to bring reproductions of Master artworks and guide the class in discussions about the art, the artist and a little history on the piece itself. The goal is for the students to understand that art is fun, accessible and a very individual means of expression.

October 3rd marked the middle of the first trimester.  Mid-term reports will be coming home on October 16th.  Check those backpacks!

The PTO Hawthorn Hustle will be held on Saturday, October 14th!  This is a great event and money earned goes back to help District 73 students.  Please be sure to register and come join us for a great morning!

Pick up Reminder

If you are getting out of your car to pick up a student at the end of the day, please remember that parent parking is located in the front parking lot.  Parking in either the Aspen Staff parking lot on the North side of the school and in the Elementary South staff parking lot, located in the back where the buses park, are for staff only.  Please use only the front parking lot if getting out of your car.
