Happy Baskin-Robbins Thursday,

Walden West packet due back as soon as possible.  Science camp donations are due on October 10th.
Exciting news!!  You should be receiving information from the Santa Clara County Library District.  As a member of the CUSD family, your child will be receiving a library e-card.  If you do not want your child to have an e-card, you are able to opt out.  The e-card will allow your child access to the library’s website.  There are many resources that the library has to offer, including free online tutoring!  Keep an eye out for this information.    
TOMORROW is Fall Colors Day!
TOMORROW will be the first official 5th/6th grade Game Day from 3:15 - 4:45 pm in the cafeteria.  The cost of the ticket is $2.00.  Permission slips will be sent home soon.  Students will not be able to participate without a signed permission slip.
