Menu Change for Monday

Mr Dean reporting live from the Island School kitchen:

Due to the plague of locusts that has decimated this year's Mac and Cheese crops, the supply of Mac and Cheese is at a record low. This has caused a  global shortage of one of our favorite lunchtime entrees. Thus we have no Mac and Cheese to serve you all on Monday. It's a tough time for all. Fortunately for us the Fried Rice farmers has had a record harvest. Apparently locusts are attracted to curvy noodles and not short grain rice. So  we'll have Fried Rice on Monday. I have just learned that the plague is over and the Mac and Cheese industry will recover from their plight in time for lunch on Thursday. So with Fried Rice on Monday and Mac and Cheese on Thursday we have much to celebrate next week.

Chorus Clothing Exchange Coming Up

All chorus students in grades 4-8 are required to have black dress pants and black dress shoes for the concert. NOW is the time to start looking for these.
In efforts to help - since kids grow so quickly - the chorus has a Clothing Exchange. Parents donate gently used black shoes and pants, which are then available for use by other parents at no charge. Simply use them while they fit, wash them, and then donate them back to the chorus. You can view the exchange inventory at this site:

The chorus welcomes donations of clean, usable black dress pants and black dress shoes. If you would like to donate items, simply send them to school and Mr. Steinbacher will add them to the inventory.

The chorus Christmas concert is December 14 at KCC.
Mark your calendars now.
