The beginning of November Shalom’s hallways are less crowded–our seniors return from their missions trip November 3rd, and our juniors have their annual retreat November 1st and 2nd. There is no school for students Friday, November 4th–faculty will be participating in professional development workshops with area Christian school teachers. Parent/teacher conferences mean a 1:00 dismissal for students November 3rd and 7th.
Special activities include basketball tryouts for middle school and varsity teams; “Torn Curtain’s”, presentation of Snow White on November 11th at 12th, and our annual elementary Thanksgiving celebration on November 18th. Selected high school students will attend ACSI’s High School Leadership Conference November 20-22. Our annual pie sale is in full swing, and a number of students are involved in preparation for that.
Thanksgiving vacation will begin with a 1:00 dismissal on November 23rd, and classes will resume November 29th.
