SPELLING BEE:

Come out and support the finalists in the school Spelling Bee on Tuesday November 12 at 5pm in the school cafeteria and see what all the buzzzz is about!

 

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES: 

November is Healthy Lifestyles month and we want you to tell us what being healthy means to you!

Don’t forget to have your Stallions submit their worksheet showing what being healthy means to them to their teacher by 11/22! One worksheet per grade will be selected to be featured on the Wall of Champions in 2020! Did you misplace your worksheet? Send an email to SommerPTAHL@gmail.com and we’ll happily send you PDF version!

Speaking of the Wall of Champions, start thinking of which photo you’d like to submit of your Stallion(s) being active! We’ll be requesting them soon!

LIBRARY:

Hi Sommer Parents!!!

I know everyone is quite busy, but if you have any time to spare, after drop off, during the day, or before release, our wonderful librarians, Mrs. Margocs and Ms. Melton, would appreciate any helping hands available to shelf the books the kids have returned.  They have the most books needing shelving on Wednesday but they will take help any day of the week!
