Nov 3

CBMS Picture Re-takes are tomorrow (Friday). If your want your pics reprinted because of the "over-touch up effect", you just need to have your child bring in the package tomorrow and drop it off in the office.

This month's WDSD newsletter is packed full with pictures and news! Check out the 4 authors highlighted in this edition - we are excited about these visits... The 8th grade soccer team is pictured on the cover, with the CBMS staff, and you have to see the adorable children that celebrated "Where the Wild Things Are" on page 2. Budding scientists are on page 3, right beside the artists and Spelling Bee Team. http://www2.tbps.org:81/OFFICE/WD%20News/index.htm
