*Shoutout to all the parents who made our field trip possible on the Carol/Schwartz team!
*Great job at our mini-exhibition at Barnes & Noble everyone!!!
*Jesus, Peyton, Jessica, and Hugo are doing a great job experimenting with their contemporary art project!

MULTI-CULTURAL FESTIVAL: PARENT/STUDENT VOLUNTEERS
The Carol/Schwartz team needs some parent/student volunteers to help run our booth at the Multi-Cultural festival this Friday, after school! We will have a shaved ice snow cone booth and a Filipino food booth and we need some people to help run the booths!
Below is a link to our Fall Student Led Conference Schedule. They will be happening on October 8th, 9th, 10th, & 11th. Please note, you do NOT have access to edit this document. To sign up for a time, please email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org 3 times that work for you. Alternatively, you may highlight a square and put your student's name, and we will email you back a confirmation. In either case, you will receive a confirmation of your date and time for your SLC. The reason for not allowing editing access is that we have had instances in the past where names were accidentally deleted and then we had multiple families show up for an SLC. This way, we can monitor and be sure that your time is truly only your time!
