Friday Notes, 11/5/2021

Dear Panther Families,

Thank you for a great four day week of teaching and learning! This week was also the first time that we had noticeably cold weather (by Michigan standards). Make sure to continue to send your child with proper cold-weather clothing for recess.

Here are a few important reminders and important events coming up:

Monday, November 8th – Picture Retake Day. Picture retakes will be indoors. If a student will be retaking pictures please make sure that the child physically brings in the picture(s) that you wish to have exchanged. These will need to be given to our Inter-State personnel. 5th grade students may enter the building as early as 8:30 AM on Monday only, if they will be retaking pictures. This will allow 5th grade students to have retakes completed before they go to Sherman Lake Camp.

Sunday, December 12th – K Wings Upjohn Community Garden Fundraiser. Join us for a K Wings game on December 12th at 3:30 PM! All proceeds from in-game fundraising will go directly to the Upjohn Community Garden. To participate;

   1.  Order tickets for your family here

   2. Consider selling “Chuck-A-Puck” bags with your child to raise funds by contacting Caroline Martin at

   3. Consider bringing a stuffed animal for the “Teddy Bear Toss.” All donated stuffed animals will go the Bronson Children’s Hospital.

Also, don’t forget that Artsonia is live at Parkwood-Upjohn! During the 2021-22 school year, families will be able to view and even purchase art work created in Art Class through the Artsonia website for Parkwood-Upjohn. Please contact Ms. Zuniga at with questions. Thank you Ms. Zuniga for connecting parents with student art created at school!

Thanks for being a Panther,

Mr. Murray
