Field Study

None this week as it’s a short week with parent conferences

School News

  • Parent Conferences - It’s been wonderful to see everyone on campus for parent conferences. I hope that each and every one of you had a rich discussion with your child’s teacher. But please don’t      let the communication end there. Our doors are always open to you and we      welcome your insights, questions, and comments to help us make Chrysalis      the best school for you and your kids.
  • Picture day - Bring your brightest smile next week for Picture Day! K-3rd and homeschool pictures take place on Tuesday, Oct 17th. 4-8th grade pictures  are on Wednesday, Oct 18th. Ordering information was sent home this week.  If you misplaced your copy, we have lots of extras in the office.
  • Fall Festival costumes - Its getting close to Fall Festival and lots of kids are dusting  off their costumes for October 31st. Our festival includes games, activities and a costume parade (thanks Parent Club!)! e’d like to remind everyone that we LOVE costumes to be worn to school on October  31st, but please keep them rated G or PG and conforming to the school  dress code. That means, no scary masks, blood, or gore to keep our kindergarteners from getting frightened. No bare midriffs, see-through tops, or spaghetti straps (straps should be at least 1 inch wide). Shorts and dresses must be longer than where the fingertips touch the thigh. We do  not allow fake guns/blasters of any kind, and other pretend weapons are strongly discouraged. However, if your child’s costume is just not  complete without a lightsaber or plastic pirate sword, please have a  grown-up walk the item to your child’s teacher on the morning of October 31st and, upon teacher discretion, the item may be carried for the costume parade and returned to your child’s teacher immediately after the parade.
