Book Fair – This Week! Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
Usborne Books will be setting up our book fair on Wednesday this week. Students will have an opportunity to look over the display throughout the day on Thursday. Marcy Drexler will be here during Parent/Teacher Conferences to answer any questions parents may have, and to help with placing orders. If you would prefer, you may shop online through this link: https://c4669.myubam.com/Event/171018 All orders placed at school or through the online link will earn books for CCS.

Parent/Teacher Conferences – Thursday, November 5 & Friday, November 6
Letters were sent home last week with your conference dates and times. If you are unsure when yours is scheduled, please contact the school office as soon as possible. Conferences are scheduled in half-hour increments, so please be considerate of your teacher’s time.

CCS Craft Fair – Saturday, November 7 – 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This is the week! We have 30+ crafters & home-based businesses coming to CCS to be part of our 3rd annual Craft & Vendor Fair. Your help is needed! If you are available to help on Saturday–even for just an hour or two–please contact the school office. We need help with the welcome table, raffles, and student craft sale. Volunteers are also needed at the end of our event (3:00 p.m.) to help put the school back in order for Monday.

Midas Basketball Informational Meeting – Tuesday, November 10 at 3:15
Parents, if your student is part of the Midas basketball team, join us for a brief informational meeting after school on this date. Aron McReynolds will go over practice and games schedules and answer any questions you may have.

Weather-appropriate Clothing
Despite the warm weather we’ve been enjoying recently, cooler weather is upon us. Please send your students fully prepared for cold weather regardless of the forecast. If they do not have adequate cold-weather gear, your students may be required to forfeit their outdoor recess time.

Board of Directors Election – Monday, November 16
Voting for open board positions will be held during the Parent Committee meeting on Monday, November 16. If you will not be able to attend this meeting, you may cast an absentee ballot in the office prior to November 16th during regular school hours.

2016 Gala for Education – Volunteer Help Needed
Reminder: the CCS Gala is coming March 4, 2016. If Jaime Sundsmo, Gala Chairman, hasn’t contacted you yet to request assistance in acquiring donations for the live and silent auction, she will be. For those of you who have already volunteered to assist, you may pick up full-color Gala info sheets and donation letters in the CCS office. We ask that when you request donations you give every request a Gala information sheet. Hopefully, this will also encourage the purchase of “Friends of CCS” tables at the Gala and spread the word. Any questions? Contact Jaime Sundsmo at jaime@cell-plus.net or 608-963-9889.

The school is in need of a committed volunteer to snow plow the property this winter. Please contact the office.
