Reminder – Early Dismissal 
There will be an early dismissal on Monday and Tuesday, November 19th and 20th for Parent/Teacher Conferences. There will also be an early dismissal on Wednesday, November 20th for the Thanksgiving break. Students will be dismissed at 1:25 P.M. on all three days
Holiday Gift Shoppe
Reminder-It’s almost time to spread some holiday cheer! This year’s Shongum School Holiday Gift Shoppe will be Monday, November 26th – Thursday, November 29th.

Gift prices range from approximately  $1.00 to $14.00. (Please note- gifts for adults tend to be at the upper end of the price range and the lower end is mostly small children’s items.)

Please send your child in with cash or a check (made out to Shongum PTO) in an envelope and a list of who they are buying for.

Also, we are still in need of a number of parent volunteers (especially in K and 1st) to make this a successful event, please consider signing up for 1 volunteer time slot. Thank you!
