e are also grateful for teachers and parents who donated money to ensure our students have books they want to read during the holiday break. Your support enabled us to achieve $3991.82 in total sales. Thanks for your support and we appreciate you.

IT'S THANKSGIVING WEEK!!!
Join the DCPS ECE team for our parent committee meeting! We are hoping to identify one parent to serve as Miner’s policy council representative for the ECE Policy Council, city wide. This year, each school’s parent committee is responsible for selecting a policy council representative. Training of Policy council representatives will occur December 2nd and 3rd.
Coin-a-Day-Challenge starts today. The money collected goes directly to purchasing books for our students. Scholastic will also match the money raised with a donation of up to one million books to The Kids In Need Foundation.
Tuesday is ELECTION day at Miner Elementary! Last year, our students submitted their ideas for the perfect Miner Bear - a bear that loves to play, is a good friend, loves to learn, is strong, and gives lots of big bear hugs. We took the winning drawing and now it's time to put it to a vote!
It's all about voter turnout, so we hope all of our Miner Bears submit ballots on Tuesday so their voices can be heard in our Miner Bear Election extravaganza.
NEXT WEEK - November 14 through 21 - is our Scholastic Book Fair! Come by every day next week from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. to get awesome deals on awesome books. The Book Fair helps raise money for books for our students and classrooms.
