The Pumpkin Patch and Parents Needed as Class Representatives
Dear Antilles Community,
We are looking forward to the 4th Annual Fall Festival featuring the Great Pumpkin Patch this weekend on Saturday, October 25, from 4 to 8pm on our upper campus. Please invite your friends in the community to join us for this fun, “community building” event. The whole family will enjoy games, music for dancing, tasty treats, and the opportunity to purchase your very own pumpkin!
Note: Our PTA still needs volunteers to serve as Class Representatives/Room Parents for several grades. Please consider signing up to serve in this vital role as a conduit of communication, information flow, and support for your fellow parents, our students, and the school. For additional information, contact PTA President Crystal Oliphant (mother of Samuel and Sarah) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 208-309-3050 or Elsie Mae King (mother of Leayrohn) at email@example.com or by phone at 690-0333.

See you this weekend! Happy Halloween and may the Great Pumpkin find you having fun!
For The Hurricanes,
Michael Hughes, Ph. D.
Head of School
Reliability means that others can depend on you. You keep your commitments and give your best to every job. You are responsible. You don’t forget, and you don’t need to be reminded. Other people can relax knowing things are in your reliable hands.
Mark your calendars for the Middle School theatre production: Myth Adventures by Eric Coble. Dionysus shares with the audience four of his favorite stories: King Midas, Orpheus, Daedalus and Icarus, and Theseus and the Minotaur.
In the Antilles Lower School, we utilize the Character Counts program to develop ethical core values and behaviors in our students. The Six Pillars of Character include: respect, citizenship, fairness, caring, responsibility and trustworthiness. This month, our students focused on the pillar of respect, which culminated with a presentation by the 3rd graders in both the Friday Morning Meeting in the Lower School and the Sing-A-Long in the ELC. Students wore yellow to show they were “radiating respect.” Click Read More to view more photos.
The Annual Antilles School Fall Festival will be held on October 25 from 4-8pm. The festival will feature the "Great Pumpkin Patch," with jack-o-lantern style pumpkins for sale and a carnival-like atmosphere of games, food, crafts, and fun for all ages. Flip Switch Band will keep everyone in a festive mood. Admission: $5 adults, $3 children under 18. No coolers or alcohol, please.
Every year, the Head of School invites donors to the school to thank them for their support. This year's Headmaster's Reception was held last Saturday evening at Paradise Point. Dr. Hughes' guests enjoyed a champagne welcome while riding the tram up to the mountain top, the magnificent view from the summit, hors d'oeurves catered by Paradise Point, and each others' company. It was a fun-filled evening and a nice way to say "THANK YOU!" to some of the most generous donors to Antilles School. CLICK to download the Annual Report. PHOTOS
