October is an exciting month at Desert Willow.  We will have our second Brown Bag Lunch of the school year on October 5th.           Students and staff have been working hard focusing on academics and preparing for Parent/Teacher Conferences.  Conferences will be held on Thursday, October 18th and Friday, October 19th.  Information will be coming home soon, so please be sure to reserve a time to meet with your child’s teacher.  We will also have our fall book fair available for our families to visit starting on Monday, October 15th.  Fall Break is October 22nd through 26th, I hope our families spend time together and make wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Our Wolves have been bursting with great character this year!  We will be celebrating their character at our first quarter character celebration on Wednesday, October 17th.  Students will be able to participate in a variety of activities – from arts and crafts to watching a movie, playing outside, and many other choices.  We are excited to celebrate all the hard work and great character at DW! 

Our students are taking part in campaigning for a position on our Student Council and Kindness Club. Students are working hard on their speeches and excited to showcase great character traits! I am very proud of all of my students who worked hard to be a Leader in our school. I will announce our Leaders in next month’s article.

A great way to stay in touch is to visit our school website:  Choose Desert Willow under the tab “Our Schools.”  We also have our Desert Willow Facebook page:                     DesertWillowCGESD.  Thank you for being a part of a successful first quarter at Desert Willow!
