Jasmine Palencia-Hernandez – gr 2 – Jasmine volunteered to help the new students find AR books in their level, and she assisted them with logging onto the computers to take AR tests. She is a kind girl who enjoys helping others and she displays a true Christian spirit.
Ian Kim– gr 6 – Ian goes out of his way to do the small things that bring joy to others. He picks up after others, helps without being asked, works with everyone and finds a smile for all his classmates.
Moeid Shahood – gr 6 – Moeid always moves quickly to get the door for his classmates and holds it open for everyone.
Ainslie Wolters– gr 5 – Ainslie takes time to notice when another student is having a rough time and offers compassion. She shares kindness with everyone she meets.

TRUNK OR TREAT
The annual Trunk or Treat and Haunted House is October 26th from 6:30 – 8:30. Please see the attached flyer for details. We also have a sign-up sheet if you would like to participate by decorating your trunk and passing out candy. We ask that, even if you are not decorating your trunk, every family send in one bag of candy which we use to help re-fill those trunks that run out of candy. We want to make sure there is plenty of candy to go around. In addition to the Trunk or Treating, there will be a Pumpkin Patch, a spooky Haunted House, a costume contest with prizes, and food for sale by the 8th grade class to help raise funds for their Washington DC trip in the spring. Come make it a fun evening with the family and bring friends! They don’t have to be part of the school to come join in the fun. Please see the flyers attached for details.
