QUINCY WEEKLY UPDATE
SUPER MARIO MATH MARATHON
We have just five days until our Super Mario’s Math Marathon! We already made it to our $2500 Power-up! We have two collection days this week: Wednesday, October 16 and Friday, October 18. Thank you so much for supporting our one PTO fundraiser for the year. Continue to send donations in to help us meet our $20,000 goal! We love our Quincy community!
As a reminder, parents are invited to stop into Quincy for math games in the classroom. Here is the schedule:
Young Fives – 1:00-2:30
KG – 11:15-11:35
1st – 10:55-11:15
2nd – 10:35-10:55
3rd – 1:30-1:55
4th – 1:10-1:30
5th – 1:55-2:15
Our parade will be on Thursday, October 31 at 2:15 pm. We are hoping to have the parade outside if weather allows. Parents will stand along the upper elementary playground and the bus loop. If it is raining, we will have the parade indoors and parents can watch either in the multipurpose room or the gym. Please note that Kindergarten and Young Fives will not participate in the parade. Also, as you know, parking is limited at Quincy. To help with that, please carpool.
Individual classrooms may be planning a few events in the afternoon. The events are left to the discretion of the classroom teacher. Teachers are encouraged to engage in some fun, traditional types of games and activities.
Our costume parade will begin at 2:15 p.m. Students are not required to wear a costume for the parade. We ask that costumes not be worn during the morning so that classroom teachers are able to maintain as normal a morning as possible.
Let’s get creative! Self-created costumes are encouraged.
Things to avoid:
- Any type of aerosol containers (silly string, hair coloring, etc.)
- Weapon type items
- No scary costumes, bloody, gory, devilish or monster-type of costume.
Any parents who prefer that their children do not participate in any of these celebrations may have their child/ren excused from the activities or take them home for the afternoon. We will make the library available in the afternoon for quiet activities or reading.
The conference scheduling website will be live on October 18 by 4:15 pm. Please visit our school homepage, scroll to the bottom under News & Announcements to find the link to schedule your conferences.
