*Butter Braid Tasting at Drop Off – Thursday, October 1st
In our attempt to return to our new “normal” at school and earn money for additional playground equipment (since we love to be outside), our school families will once again be selling delicious Butter Braid products. On Thursday, October 1st, you will have the chance to taste a variety of Butter Braid products at drop off in the morning. For those of you who may not know about Butter Braid: Butter Braid pastries are delicious frozen pastries that come in a number of tasty varieties that our families and friends truly enjoy. Many families find them to be great treats for the holidays. Click here to learn more about Butter Braid: https://butterbraid.com/. Start making your list of folks to contact, including coworkers, neighbors, family members, and friends. Like last year, orders and payments may be placed ONLINE. Your family and friends from all over may order and pay online (but you have to deliver them). Besides our usual pastries found on the printed order forms, you can find blueberry cream cheese, a variety of cookie doughs, and cinnamon rolls for purchase online. (NOTE: Online orders incur a small convenience fee of approx. $1.50/per order.) Order forms will go home the day of the tasting. The deadline to turn in your orders is Friday, October 16th. We are very excited to offer all these scrumptious delights once again this fall!

*4-H Robotics Interest Meeting
On Monday, September 28th, from 5:30-6:00 p.m. under the Big Top tent, the Regents Academy 4-H Club and Nacogdoches County 4-H Club will host a 4-H Robotics interest meeting for any Regents students in the 3rd -12th grade. Students do not have to be members of the 4-H club at this time to attend. Parents are asked to attend with their child(ren) to see what the project has to offer. Current and former robotics team members/leaders will be on hand to answer questions. No RSVP necessary. Just show up if you are interested!
*Staff Work Day – Wednesday, September 30th
One day each fall and spring our teachers take a half day to participate in additional training and complete projects. Wednesday, September 30th, is our Staff Work Day for the fall. We appreciate our parents picking up their children early on these days, and we hope that students will enjoy their short day! KPrep-3rd grade will be released at 11:45 a.m., and grades 4 and up will be released at noon. There will be no After School Care on this day.
*Parent-Teacher Conferences – Friday, October 2nd
Friday, October 2nd, marks our halfway point for the first trimester. On this day, we will have an 11:45 a.m. and noon release. There will be no Hot Lunch and no After School Care. Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled from 1:15-4:45 p.m. First trimester Progress Reports will be handed out at these conferences. If you do not attend a conference, progress reports will be emailed on Monday, October 5th. This year, instead of a sign-up table in the school hall for conferences, we are going to use https://www.signupgenius.com/. We will send out more information about SignUpGenius next week. As in the past, we ask that there would be no students on campus during Parent-Teacher Conferences in order to minimize the possibility of distractions.
*PSAT – Wednesday, October 14th
The PSAT will be given at school on Wednesday, October 14th. The cost of the test is $25.00. 9th-11th grade students are encouraged to take this test. Please see Mrs. Gilbreath to sign up and pay. We have a limited number of spots available. The deadline for registering and paying for this test is now.
