THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER
The Principal Chronicles continue ... Happy almost Halloween!! You can feel the energy start to buzz around the building based on Halloween being right around the corner. I am really excited to see all of the costumes that the kids come up with. As a design challenge for our building, we are having our teachers decorate their doors for Halloween. So when you are in the building for the next few weeks you should come check them out.
As for my own family, the girls are going to be a golden angel and something else. Why something else you ask? Well my oldest, who is now in middle school, is coming up with a surprise costume for Halloween. Who knows what that will look like, but knowing her, it will be something like a rainbow-fluffy-sloth-unicorn. In addition, we will be going to Chap's Sweet Street as well as CTE's own Trunk-or-Treat! Essentially all the money I spend on dental insurance will be needed after this weekend. I hope to see all of you there.
Thanks for tuning in, and stay alert for next week's episode of the Principal Chronicles ...
THIS WEEK: I have posted 2 new podcasts (due to Fall Break delay) for our weekly Staff Chat. Each is available on CTE's YouTube channel - please subscribe and never miss any of the fun! Each week I will have a short interview with one of our staff members. Please enjoy the third & fourh episodes with Beth Ward and Karen Nottingham!

VETERAN'S DAY EVENT - KAREN NOTTINGHAM
Dear CTE Families:
This year, to celebrate Veteran's Day, we are hosting a veteran from the Douglas County Veterans Monument Foundation to read to students and tell his story, along with a Q&A time.
In conjunction with this, we would like to decorate the walls with stories of our community's veterans. A template, My Veteran's Day Hero, can be completed by your child at home. Students can honor a family member or friend who has served in the military. There is a place to include his/her name, the veteran's name, and service information, and either a photograph or a drawing that represents their veteran. You could also have your child write a short piece on why their Veteran is a Hero, and how they exhibited EPIC qualities as a veteran. This could either be on the template or attached to it.
Your child's teacher also has the template if you are unable to print it at home. Please return the completed form to your child's teacher by Thursday, 11/2, so that we have time to create the display prior to the veteran's visit on Monday, 11/6, and for our Donuts with Dad event on Friday, 11/10.
Thank you for taking the time to honor the veterans in our CTE community!
