Hello Finch Families!  This is Mr. O’Doherty with three quick announcements.  First is about our Wild West book fair going on in the library.  Tomorrow is the last day to make purchases.  It will be open after school until 5:00 and then it rides off into the sunset.  Hee Haw!  Second is that tomorrow is also the last day for the ASB food drive.  The top donation class will earn a celebration next week, so please consider donating, and thank you to all of you who have already done so.  Lastly, next week is conference week, so if you haven’t scheduled an appointment yet with your child’s teacher, there is still time.  Don’t forget that school is out every day next week at 1:00 for conferences.  Thank you, and have a great night.

Hello Finch families!  This is Mr. O’Doherty with two reminders.  Tomorrow is Friday, December 1st and it's an early release day with dismissal at 1:45.  In case you were unaware, teachers stay here at school during these days and collaborate at grade levels around the curriculum and assessments to plan lessons to help your student grow.  Also, it is the first Friday of the month, which means it is time for Coffee with the Principal at 8:30 in the cafeteria.  Our topic is winter weather and Mr. Troy is going to join us to share about how we work to keep things safe around here during those snowy and icy days.  I hope you can stop in after dropping the students off for some hot coffee and friendly chatter.  Thank you and have a great evening.

Hello Finch families!  This is Mr. O’Doherty with two reminders and one request.  First is a reminder about no school tomorrow in observance of Veteran’s Day.  I hope you enjoy the 3-day weekend!  Second is a reminder about the PTO meeting on Tuesday and Turkey Bingo next Friday.  I hear Turkey Bingo is a really fun time, and did you know that 100% of the proceeds stays here at Finch to support our Families in Need projects.  This brings me to my one request – please support our Turkey Bingo gift basket raffle by donating items early next week.  The classroom with the most items donated will earn raffle tickets to use the night of the event.  So come on out to have some Finch family fun for a fabulous cause.
