If you purchased and were unhappy with your Picture Package, please send your Picture Package to school with your student on Retake Day. Your Retake Picture Package will be produced and shipped to the school four weeks after Retake Day.

Families, Just a reminder to send students with winter gear to stay warm while they play outside. If the real feel is 10 degrees or above we will go outside. Students need to have a coat, gloves, hat, boots, and snow pants to play in the snow.
Families, Just a reminder that our Fall break starts tomorrow. The school will resume with classes on Monday, November 27th. This is also a great time to take your candle fundraiser with you to any family gathering. We hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and some time to relax. See you next week!!
Andrew Families, Coming home today is a flyer giving your family an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a Dubuque Fighting Saints hockey game. If we have a good amount of interest in this event, we may look to offer another opportunity before the season is over.
Andrew Families and Community Members, This past Monday our school kicked off a Candle Fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised go right back to the students. The money goes into their Student Council Account for them to do fun things, go to fun places, get extra materials for recess, etc. If you would like to purchase a candle and a student doesn't contact you, there is an order form in the office that we would be happy to assist you with. The scents are also in the office if you would like to smell the different smells. Thanks for supporting this event!!
Families, Just a reminder that we only have school on Monday and Tuesday next week. We sent a message out in September that the coloring on the calendar was incorrect for November 22nd. Both days will be full days and we will have our monthly Leadership Assembly on November 21st.

When we have LEAP on Halloween, we make Halloween snacks
Families, I understood the Voy movie event was last night and tonight. Apparently, the information I had was incorrect and it was only last night. Sorry for the miscommunication. Be safe and warm tonight!!
First day for cooking at LEAP. One group made pumpkin pancakes and the other group made witch hats. Yummy!
Parents & Guardians, Please check your child's backpack tonight for their new Leadership Shirt. They are yellow tie-dyed shirts. This is the shirt we will wear for Leadership Assemblies and other school-wide events. Have a great evening!!
Last day for STEM at LEAP. These students have done awesome.
