Dear Buffalo Trail Families,

Do You Enjoy Cooking?
Thanks to all of you who volunteered for the teacher dinner on November 13.  Our sign up is full.  Hooray!!!  Keep an eye out for future cooking opportunities!  

Do you know you can light up a child’s smile
Ms. Meyer, our wonderful art teacher does too!  She is looking for parent helpers in the art room, especially with the younger grades!  This Art Room link will allow you to sign up for an available slot.  Each slot is listed from 1:20-3:20 but don't feel like you have to come in for that long.  1st grade is from 1:20-2:05, 2nd grade from 2:10-2:55, and Kindergarten from 3:00-3:20.
Pop in and lend a hand and watch a child’s smile widen!
