RADA Cutlery:  We are once again doing the RADA Cutlery fundraiser.  It is a great way to get some Christmas shopping done early.  Catalogs were sent home today (1 per family) and will need to be returned by October 13.  Please return catalog and order sheet with payment of cash or checks (written to RKS).

Subway Lunch on Wednesdays:  Beginning next Wednesday, we will once again offer Subway lunch.  An order form was sent home with your child today.  Please turn in orders and exact cash payment by Tuesday.  Subway lunches will be served on Wednesdays.

We will be working on trimming back the trees and bushes in front of and around the small house near the main parking lot.  Yes, there really is a house behind that greenery!  We will also do some general cleanup of the grounds like weeding our flower beds. Many hands will make the job go quickly.  We may even finish by noon.
