Your teachers have been making arrangements to meet with you individually for Parent Conferences.  We have set aside the full day on November 18 (non-student day) and half days the rest of that week.  We will be on minimum day schedule Tuesday – Friday, dismissing at 12:55.  Please let your child care providers know of this change.
Here’s the scoop – We’re having an ice cream social and Family Fun Night!  Join us for a night of games, dancing and ice cream on Thursday, November 21, 6 – 8 PM in the MPR.
The event is being provided by the Twin Trails Foundation; there is no charge to attend!
Children must be accompanied by an adult and ice cream will be available while supplies last.
We had a great turnout for ice cream donations and all slots are filled.  However, we are still looking for board games (Donated or On Loan) as well as volunteers to work on the day of the event (setup, during, and cleanup). Please sign up for volunteering or games at  http://www.slyreply.com/app/sheets/m0rg72iwi0ir/

We have a new Instagram Page to go along with our Facebook page it’s: sundanceelementary (all one word.) We have about 35 followers but mostly K parents. We’d love to get some other grades involved. This page will focus more on classroom activities vs. whole school.
Some Sundance Parents have created a Facebook Page to help build more community within our school.  This group is not administered by the school in any way but provides a chance to connect with other Sundance Parents: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1456800417734747/
