NO School tomorrow, Wednesday, October 5th in observance of Yom Kippur.
Upcoming Events:
Mix & Mingle Friday, October 14th – 5:00 – 7:00 pm 
What you need to know: Everyone is welcome – Students, Teachers, Families! All you need to bring is yourself & your own beverages.
Please join us for this year’s first Mix & Mingle on Friday October 14th from 5 PM until 7 PM in the Center School courtyard/playground.  
We will be providing pizza, and we will arrange for an ice cream truck. 
We look forward to seeing everyone in person and spending time together!  

In Our Community
Kids For Ukraine — Created by Center School Students!
On the Back-to-School call, 8th Graders Nazar Zavada and Connor Margolis shared an update about Kids For Ukraine, an organization they co-founded in March 2022.  To date, they’ve raised almost $900, which has been donated to two not-for-profit
organizations providing support to children and families in Ukraine.

PTA Committees and Meetings:
The Auction Committee will be holding a kickoff meeting THIS Friday, October 7th
at 8:40am in the school courtyard. We welcome anyone who is interested to come join us for coffee and to learn more. We are looking forward to an in-person return to the auction and would love help in all areas: soliciting great donations, decorations, food and more. Come learn about Center School’s very unique auction and potluck (where it’s a family affair … students and siblings all join in the fun too). It’s a fun way to get involved and meet other Center School families.
