Thank you to all who wore blue and donated $1.00 for Diabetes Awareness on Thursday. This is an important topic for us all to learn about, thank you to our School Nurses for spearheading this effort.

As the weather gets colder please be aware that students will still be going outside for PE class, recess, incentive….and will need to be dressed accordingly.

November 20th is Make A Difference Day. Our tree is full of leaves filled-out by our students recognizing people who have made a difference in their lives. On the 20th, 20 random leaves will be pulled and each one mentioned on the leaf for making a difference will be given a certificate for ice cream in the café.

November 20th is also Picture Retake Day.

If you are looking to get rid of hula-hoops or golf putters, please bring them to the gym. Our PE teachers would appreciate them.

MESSAGE FROM THE MAIN OFFICE

Looking for something to do with your child on a cold, rainy/snowy day?  Perhaps you can have them practice leaving voicemail messages so they're more comfortable when calling from the main office.  This skill is more important the older your child becomes.  Have them call your phone and pretend:

· They can't remember the after-school plan (bus, parent pick-up, walker, BASE).

· They forgot their lunch or instrument at home and would like someone to bring it to them, if possible.

· They’d like to know if they can stay after with a teacher for extra help.

· They want to know if they can walk to the public library with a friend.

 

Remind them to leave the important details like what time they have lunch or band, what time they'll need to be picked up after extra help, who they want to walk to the library with, etc.  When you receive the message, you can then call us at 508-697-6968 and we'll get the answer to your child or have them come down to talk with you.  Cell phone use is not allowed during the school day, so please do not text your child.

And please remember to check often to make sure your voicemail isn't full so you can receive messages from your child.  


Our LOST AND FOUND is overflowing. If you child is missing a sweatshirt, jacket, lunch box, water bottle…it is most likely in there.
