Dear Families,

We had an AWESOME Spirit Week last week, with great student and faculty participation for our theme days!  The next several weeks also feature more activities and celebrations, including our Dia de Los Muertos celebration on Monday, our Thanksgiving Food Drive (Nov 9 - 18), the Scholastic Book Fair, our Community Celebration and Potluck on the evening of Friday, Nov 13, and Community Group potlucks happening throughout the month.  See below for more information.

A note about After School time:
Office Hours on Monday and Wednesday are for subject-specific support on projects and playlists with teachers helping out.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are quiet, individual student work time.  All students who are not picked up by 3:30 are expected to be working quietly by 3:35.  If you pick up your children after 3:35, you should come inside and get them, or send a text message to them when you pull up.  

There will be a meeting for parents of girls who will be playing Denali Girls' Basketball this season, on Weds. November 18th from 6:30-7:30pm at Denali. Paperwork needs to be turned in as soon as possible, and before practices start, Monday December 7th, in order for your student to participate in practices. Practices will be Mon., Tues., and Thurs. mornings, from 6:40-7:55am (This is when the gymnasium is available).  All families currently participating or interested in Denali athletics should bookmark the new athletics website.  Coach J will update this regularly with schedules and other information.

Dia de Los Muertos:
Students have been learning about Dia de Los Muertos in their Community groups, and will get a chance to experience some elements of the celebration this Monday.  Thanks to the parents and faculty who have taken a lead on this cultural experience.

Community Celebration - Potluck 6-8pm - Entertainment at 7pm, Fri, Nov 13.
This is a fun event sponsored by our Parent Organization.  Please bring a food item - there will also be a door prize. The Scholastic Book Fair will be open for business, and all sales help support Denali.  The Book Fair runs from Nov 9 - 13.

Our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive begins on Nov 9 and continues through Nov 18.  Please bring in non-perishable food items to place in our donation bins.

The next Coffee with the Directors will be this Fri, Nov 6, from 8 - 9am. We recommend taking a look at this article before the event. As always, we'll send out notes in the following weekend's newsletter.

This Saturday, Nov 7, we’ll have another Facilities Work Day.  We’ll focus on cleaning inside and out!

Finally, please do not park in any neighboring parking lots unless you have heard from the school that it’s OK to do so!  Thank you for helping us be good neighbors! 

Happy November!
-J & J
