Flu shots scheduled for Thursday, October 11 have been rescheduled for Thursday, October 25. 


 

Our GREEN CORN Festival is scheduled for Friday, October 19.   We need donations of individually wrapped candy, 2 liter bottles, and decorated cakes for the cake walk. The storm days have put us behind, so we will extend the deadline for pre-orders to Wednesday, October 17. All orders will be distributed by Thursday, October 18. Check folders and backpacks for pre-ordered wristbands and tickets. 

 

We will be pre-selling raffle tickets Tuesday- Thursday morning (8:25-9:00) and afternoon (3:10-3:45) in the front of the school. Tickets are $5 each and we can take cash or check made out to Bluewater Elementary. You might win the 10.5ft YOLO.
