Bus Evacuation Drills

     It is that time of year again for the bus drivers to practice their evacuation drills off the bus. They are schedule for Thursday, Oct. 22, in the morning when buses arrive at the school building.  We will use Friday, Oct. 23 as a rain date if needed. 


Free lunches! (but not free milk)

     A student cannot go through the lunch line and just get milk for their “free lunch”.  If they just take a milk they would get charged for it.  Lunch is free but not milk.  USDA allows for every student to have a free lunch but any a la carte item must be paid for.  The students have to take the whole lunch for it to be free.


Right to Read Week~ It’s a Zoo Around Here!

     We will be celebrating Right to Read week the week of 10/26.  Mrs. Pinkelman has fun activities planned for the students!  If you would like to dress for the week it is as follows:

 Monday  10/26- Artic Habitat - wear white

Tuesday 10/27 - Dessert Habitat - wear brown

Wednesday 10/28- Ocean/Aquatic Habitat - wear blue

Thursday 10/29 - Grassland Habitat - wear green 


Halloween Costumes

     Halloween will soon be here!  As you think ahead and prepare your children’s costumes, I ask that you refrain from having them dress as anything that might be considered to represent the occult (such as devils, witches, Freddie, Scream) or anything that might be frightening to others. Remember the students should not wear their costumes to school that day! (unless they are in kindergarten)  Due to COVID and the students not being able to change rooms to put on their costume they will need to be able to slip their costume over their clothes.     


Halloween Activities

     While we cannot have parents or volunteers in the school we would still like to do our annual Halloween parade.  On Friday, October 30th; the parade will be at 2:00 pm, weather permitting, we will travel down to the square, past Kell’s and then up the alley past Mary Ann’s Meat.   If it is raining we will stay inside. If you would like to see your student you can find a spot on our parade route.  Please make sure you socially distance and wear a mask!!
