Book Character Parade, Friday, October 31

PTA Meeting, Thursday, Nov. 6


Chess & Checkers Club starts October 2.  Thursdays from 3:00 - 4:00 pm.  All students K-5 are invited to participate.  Permission slips can be picked up in the main office.  Snacks provided.

October Book Parade - October 31 at 1:00:  for all students that meet their October reading goal (talk with teachers about specific goals).  Students can dress as their favorite book character and participate in our all school parade.  We ask that all students bring the book that shows their character.  Only students that have achieved their monthly reading goal will participate.  So Read, Read, Read!!  Remember...book characters from books they have read.  We are trying to stay away from purely a Halloween style costume day.  Also no weapons, inappropriate themes or scary masks that would frighten young children.

Volunteers Needed!  We just started our Jr. Jogger program at Marcus Whitman.  Jr. Joggers will run every Friday during lunch recess.  Students can earn "jogger charms" as they finish laps each week.  We are looking for a few parents to volunteer each Friday between 11:00 - 1:00.  If you would be interested in helping, please contact the office at 967-6300.

Family Bingo Night, Thursday, October 16 at 6:00:  PTA Bingo Night is one of our favorite new traditions at Marcus Whitman.  Bring your whole family in for a fun night with bingo, snacks, popcorn and prizes.  Hope to see you here.  First game begins at 6:00.

Parenting with Love and Logic Workshops:  Marcus Whitman is offering a fun parenting workshop that can help children learn to become more responsible using the "Parenting the Love and Logic Way" curriculum.  Workshops will be held on Wednesday evenings from October 8 - November 12 (six sessions in all) from 6:30 - 8:00 pm.  This program is offered absolutely free for Marcus Whitman parents.  Childcare and pizza dinner will be provided every night to families.  If intereseted, please contact our counselor, Mr. Williams at 967-6300 or at jack.williams@rsd.edu.
