There will be plenty of refreshments and fun for all.

Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place beginning September 12 through the 19. Take a moment to write down questions you have for your child’s teacher and bring those questions to your conference.

This year, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Target. But that’s only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge. Go to GiveWith.Target.com to vote for Wolf Canyon Elementary School once a week through September 21 or until Target has given away all $5 million. And please forward this email to your friends. Vote and see rules at GiveWith.Target.com.
