From the Principal

 

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Fall has finally arrived and winter is right on its heels. Having lived in Russia for a long time, I’m a big fan of fresh air despite the cold! Please make sure your children have coats, hats, and gloves when the temperatures drop. Outdoor recess (weather allowing) is necessary to refresh their energy for the afternoon. 

I’m looking forward to our Halloween Parade on Halloween at 2:15! Please remember to park at the Elks Club and meet us at the high school track. 

Bus Safety remains a high priority for us so please remember to reinforce the three important rules with your children:  listening to the bus driver, using a quiet voice, and staying in your seat. 

Our character word of the month now is responsibility and I’m happy to report that 90% of the students can tell me what that means! Next month, we will focus on kindness.  This coincides nicely with Thanksgiving and the Dance for Kindness (11/13 at the Shops).  Every Friday for November will be Kindness Friday, so encourage your child to wear orange.  

Thank you to the PTA and the FRC for Magic Mike and the Abracabully program this month and in advance for the Chinese Acrobats coming soon.  

I encourage you to support your children in their academic growth by reading as much as you can with them.  Not only does it support their academics, but it develops their imagination! 

See you at the parade,

Sincerely,

 Maryellen
