The school calendar, including volleyball games, is available on our website, www.bbcalatrobe.com. Just as a reminder, the first quarter ends October 18th and it will be a noon dismissal and there will be no school October 19th.  October 22 is an Academic Release Day – students who achieve honor roll for the first quarter will not have school that day. Staff will be attending CEC (for continuing education) on October 31st and there will not be school for students that day.

The school revival scheduled for October 15-17 has been canceled

This Friday, we will be having a field trip to Faranda’s Farm. This will be an all-day event and students will need to bring a lunch with all disposable containers. The cost of the field trip is $10 per student. I realize this is a more expensive trip, and the last-minute notice is due to availability at the farm (this is the only date they would take our group). If you need additional time to pay or are concerned about being able to pay for the trip, please contact me directly to make payment arrangements or arrangements for your students on Friday. There will be no staff at the school for students not going on trips

Dress for the Farm – It calls to be cold and damp that day. We are allowing students to dress casual that day. Everyone should wear sweaters and jackets as well as shoes that can get muddy. We also suggest a change of shoes for when we return to the school in case they do get muddy. Girls should wear leggings underneath their basketball shorts or skirts if they want to keep their legs warm. Guys can wear jeans or basketball shorts

For cancer awareness month, on the week of October 22nd, student can pay $10 to purchase causal dress for the rest of the month as well as a lunch provided on Thursday, October 25th. Lunch details will be provided that week

Please continue to send in Box Tops for Education and Chick-Fil-A receipts from Eastgate and Westmoreland Mall

The annual Spaghetti Dinner will be on November 9th. We are planning to have vendors and dessert auctions again this year. We will be asking all of our 7th-12th grade students to help serve. We will also ask our families to donate items as we get closer to the event

Fund Raiser – This year we will be selling Amish dips and jellies. We will start the sales at the Spaghetti Dinner, where we will have samples available, and continue selling through the month of November. Ordered items will be available approximately two weeks before Christmas

This month’s Scripture memory passage is Psalm 86:1-10.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
