The Welcome Back Picnic was a great success.  This year we were assisted by a Girl Scout troop who are all CASY alumni.  Ms. Suzie and Ms. Crystal taught some fun dances and there was a surprise visit by “Elvis” Spero.  A video of the event is on our Facebook page at CASY School.

Spanish classes are learning their colors, numbers, greetings and vocabulary through music and rhythmic chants.  The children are showing lots of enthusiasm and are picking up the phrases and vocabulary quickly.  Teachers are reviewing it in the classroom as well.

Energy Audit.  We are already quite green.  Currently we are tightening ductwork and replacing light fixtures.  We have already installed fully programmable thermostats.

Cooler temperatures means:

  1. Fun outdoor sings with the Spero’s (we have already done two this year).
  2. Outdoor play for recess and after lunch bunch.  Please apply sunscreen before school every day.

Thanksgiving Food Drive – We are looking for a parent to coordinate this valuable project.  Please call John or Diane.

TV Donation – We do not use TVs often at school.  The one we currently have is heavy and difficult to move.  If you have a flat screen that you no longer use, we would appreciate the donation.

Upcoming Events:

  1. Fire Safety Day with Scottsdale Firefighters on Wednesday, October 12th and Thursday, October 13th.
  2. Halloween Parades on Thursday, October 27th and Monday, October 31st.
