Husky Connection Oct.12-16

Husky Connection
October 12 – 16

Hello Husky families! Here is what is happening this week:

Friday, October 16: Dance-A-Thon!

Dance-A-Thon Update:
We had a bit of a quiet weekend on our donation site!  We are still at about $12,500 (63% of our goal of $20,000).  We are SO close to the goal!  If every child brings in just $15.00 this week, we will HIT THE GOAL!  Please, consider donating if you have not already!  EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!!  We will be collecting donations on Tuesday & Thursday again this week.  We know we can do it…and we are almost there!!

This will also be the last week for our coin drive at Drop-Off and Pick-Up!  Save up those coins and donate them to our Safety Patrol or Teachers on Wednesday and Friday of this week!  The kids beat out the teachers on Friday, so the teachers are looking to capture the victory this week!

If you are interested in joining us on Friday when we dance to celebrate our success, here is the schedule for the Dance-A-Thon:
9:20 – 9:50:  2nd Grade
10:10 – 10:40:  1st Grade
10:55 – 11:25:  3rd Grade
11:50 – 12:20:  5th Grade
1:30 – 2:00:  Kindergarten
2:25 – 2:55:  4th Grade

Also on Friday, October 16:  Free Dress Friday!  Theme is DiscoverU Day. Wear your favorite college gear if you like, or free dress!
