Soft Start to School Cherokee Trail has chosen to have a soft start to our school day. Our doors open to students at 8:30am, the first bell, letting us know that school is starting, is at 8:35, and the tardy bell rings at 8:40am. Please remember, there is no playground supervision on the playground. If students are dropped off in the morning, they are encouraged to walk to the appropriate door to enter the building. Only students who come to school after 8:30 am should enter through the front door. Thanks for helping us keep our students safe! Halloween Parties Are Coming! We are excited to celebrate Fall with our students and community. Parties for kindergarten through fourth grade will be during the first hour of the day. Grades 5 and 6 will have their parties at the end of the day. If your child’s party is in the morning and they want to dress for the party, please send them to school dressed in their costume and with a change of clothes to wear the remainder of the day. If your child’s party is scheduled for the end of the day and they want to dress up, please send their costume with them to school. As always, NO WEAPONS or BLOOD are permitted. Please connect with your student’s teacher if you have questions. Multicultural Night Was a Hit! Thanks to all the families who participated. The food was incredible and the activities were lots of fun. Mrs. Weyhrich and the other feeder ESL teachers did a wonderful job!

No School on November 6th Remember we have no school for students on November 6th, Election Day. Many parents wonder why students have this day off. One of the reasons is somewhat historic. In the past, schools were polling places for elections. This would bring a lot of “strangers” in the building and could potentially compromise the safety of students. Teachers will be working hard on that day. We will be looking at our iReady data and using the data to plan instruction which will meet the individual needs of students.

The Principal Chronicles continue ... It's that time of year again, Halloween!!! I was just having the conversation with my daughter this morning about Halloween decorations. We were in the car on the way to her middle school and we were looking at all of the houses that had Halloween decorations. We both wondered when that became a thing? Was there a point in time where houses just started decorating for Halloween? Was it just some, random Thursday? We had no idea but it's kind of a cool thing and it is always interesting what people can come up with. Our neighbor up the street goes all out every single year. In fact, he goes all out for Halloween and for Christmas. He has that house which cars drive by almost non-stop during the holiday season. This year for Halloween, he has a huge pumpkin-headed guy and lots of ghouls and such. Both my girls are scared to walk the dog by his house after dark (which is funny because they walk the dog by his house constantly during Christmas). Not sure what our costume situation is going to be like this year. Both of our girls are at their other houses up until the day before Halloween so their costumes will be a surprise for us. Should be interesting I am sure. Don't forget to come and see all of our students costumes either at our Trunk or Treat TONIGHT, Friday, October 26th from 4:30 - 6:00 PM or at our school's Halloween celebration during the first hour of the day on Wednesday, October 31st. Hope to see you all then. Happy Halloween and we will see you next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...
