PJammin for Kids with Cancer Day!

Our Commerce Kids have been working hard on their “chore hearts” to help raise money for children with leukemia.  In honor our students’ kindness and generosity, Friday, November 15th will be a PJammin’ for Kids with Cancer Day!  Your child can wear their (school appropriate) PJs on this date.  This would also be a great day to bring in “chore hearts” if you haven’t already done so.  The due date for all “chore hearts” is Monday, November 18th.

Hello Commerce Families! We hope everyone had a great weekend. A couple notes for the week:

-During the Book Fair, students are encouraged to participate in our All for Books fundraiser with a twist! Students are asked to donate their Book Fair change to purchase more books for our library. This year we have 2 jars, a fairy and a wizard jar. If we reach our goal of $800 Ms. Carlin will dress up as a fairy or a wizard – whichever jar has the most money!

-Our pavilion picnic table fundraiser is 75% to our goal and we need your support! Teachers and students alike have greatly enjoyed our new pavilion! We need to raise more funds to finish paying for it! Please consider supporting this project with a donation of any size.
Supporters will be recognized with a permanent sign at the pavilion. For information, contact Shayna Levin

-Missing a sock, hat or glove? The lost and found is full of sad and lonely articles of clothing. Please stop by and see if something belongs to your student(s).

-Reminder that Thursday is a half day for parent-teacher conferences. Dismissal is at 11:09am. (The book fair will be open!)

Have a great week!
