Remember Monday (10/10) is Indigenous People’s Day and there is no school.
Have a wonderful long weekend,

Local School Council Agenda - Our next LSC meeting is Wednesday, October 12 at 10AM. Please see this link for the agenda and virtual login information.
Battle of the Books - We're excited to participate in our third year of Battle of the Books and are seeking volunteer coaches! There are 2 open coach slots for grades 4th-6th and 1 slot for a 7th-8th coach. There is some flexibility here, as you *can* meet virtually but it is preferred that you meet in person. In the past, teams have met once every 2 weeks. The positions are open to staff and parents.
If you're a parent, you must be cleared as a level 1 volunteer and can start that process here: https://chicagopublicschools.civicore.com/admin/index.php?section=application&action=new

If you're interested in coaching and/or have any questions regarding BoB, please email Ms. Syed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall Fest - A few hundred Skinner North students, staff, & families came together on the gorgeous fall day on Friday to celebrate community, to raise funds for the school, and to have fun! THANK YOU, Skinner North Fall Fest parent volunteers (all 50+ of you!), for building a fantastic event! Your time, energy, and enthusiasm are part of what makes this school community special.
Thank you to those of you who participated in the Mystery Box Raffle! Prize winners will be announced at school this week.
