There was not a quorum present, so voting could not take place during this meeting.

 

Spooktacular Recap:

 

  • The Spooktacular event was a success. However, there were some teenagers at the event, which was not appropriate for an elementary. Parent volunteers were extremely helpful for this event. Next year unless they are volunteers, kids older than grade 5 will not be allowed to attend.

 

 

Upcoming Events:

 

  • November 30: There will be a Reading Laser Show

 

  • November 22: Crazy Hat/Hair Day

 

  • December: Chorus will be visiting nursing home and singing for Mayor. (Pending bus arrangements from PAL)

 

  • December 6th 5-7pm: Parent Conferences. Teachers will send home sign up sheets. Conferences will be 3 minutes and parents must attend at their scheduled time in order to accommodate as many times as possible.

 

 

Enrichment/Talented Classes:

 

  • This year, Walsh is offering Talented Art, Chorus, Drums, Bucket Band, Library Enrichment, Little Scientists and Talented Gym for selected students.

 

  • Walsh will also have one fourth grade student participating in the Talented and Gifted Program through the City of Waterbury.
