As we delve into the month of remembrance and the season of Thanksgiving, we just want to thank all of you who contribute your gifts of time and donations of all sorts to make St. Giles hum!
October was busy! We enjoyed seeing everyone here for conferences and supporting our book fair! Thank you to all who volunteered during the fair as well as all of you who shopped and purchased books in support of our classrooms and libraries! And thank you to Karen Pauwels and Becky Mongiat (and their families!) for all of the time they put in to help it run so smoothly. Halloween was a great success--despite a rotten day of weather--because of the efforts and contributions of so many of you! Thank you to all -- especially the many room parents--who helped us implement new things in the classroom parties for K-6th grade. The movement of the K-5th grade seems to have been a success-- well implemented and well received by parents, faculty, and students alike. If you have any feedback you would like to pass along, please do so here! We continue to have openings on our fun lunch serving sign ups! If you are free and able to help, please join us! Sign up here.
November is busy too-- with December and Christmas quickly on its heels. Keep checking the enews, the PTO web page, and the school calendar for upcoming events-- the CCW Coat Drive, Trivia Night, Infinity Arts and 8th grade plays, a November pre-school mass, Diversity committee meeting, and the kickoff to our annual Christmas Bonus Fund for Faculty and Staff!
Ty Mayberry, the chair of the BSJ technology committee, joined us for the PTO meeting this month on a special task- he is working on getting our future meetings live streamed for all of you who can tune in from afar. We are hoping to see you at our next meeting on Tuesday, December 10th, 8:30 a.m. in the McDonough Hall conference room, but for those of you who can't make it in person, check back to this page that morning for steps on how to live stream us onto your desktop!

BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB
Birthday Book Club is a way to celebrate student birthdays while building our school library.

Sign up HERE. Volunteers are needed to organize attendees, oversee donations, and run the lunch.
