Thanksgiving Feast Potluck TOMORROW: Parents and Guardians are invited to our annual Thanksgiving Feast Potluck will take place in our classroom on Friday, November 18th at noon. We will provide drinks and utensils; please contribute the following items to ensure a full meal for everyone:
Red Rock Fantasy Lights On Celebration TONIGHT: We will be unveiling Feliz Navidad by Frida Kahlo tonight, Thursday, November 17th at 5:00pm. Meet us at the fountain at Los Abrigados.
Fall Break: School will be closed the week of November 21st-25th for Fall Break.
Chocolate Donations: We are doing the basket collections again for the Gala this year & U.E. has been assigned the CHOCOLATE basket! All items are due in the baskets by this Friday, November 18th. Each student will earn 1 Charter Buck for donating to the basket (not per item, but per kid; ie. if one kid gives 5 chocolates, they still only get 1 Charter Buck). A special bake sale will be held the last week of November where the Charter Bucks can be spent.
This website: http://www.chocolateforgood.com/fair-trade-chocolate-shop.php has gift baskets of chocolate that are completely fair trade & don't involve themselves in child labor. 90% of their profits benefit Mercy Corp which is an organization that helps people all over the world get the daily provisions they need to survive & thrive. http://www.mercycorps.org/ We will accept donations of Fair-Trade chocolate as late as Wednesday, November 30th.
