Well of course…. We know you know that. Duh, right?! Just a tiny reminder that several State Ballot Measures do impact our kids. The PTA has information to help here: http://capta.org/focus-areas/advocacy/current-legislation/state-ballot-measures/



Its HEEEERE… the FOHA Parent Mixer is this FRIDAY NOVEMBER 11th. We’re looking forward to a Parent’s Night Out and to seeing all of you! Please RSVP to the Paperless Post, get the info, and let us know you’re coming.  Haven’t received the invite?  Respond to this email and let us know and we will fix that!



Like to talk? On Tuesday, NOVEMBER 15th from 1:32 - 4:30, you can make a BIG impact!  Students & parents join your very own Humanities Board afterschool for Fundraising Phone-A-Thon. We will be calling fellow Humanities families to raise awareness & help fund our amazing academy.  We provide everything you need, making it painless & actually fun. Free Food and a new T-SHIRT* (...they are “Ombre” now) to all who help! To sign up, contact Jeannie DeLaura, jdelaura@boltonco.com


*While supplies last, wearable on Fridays, or any day if you’re all grown up.
