October 5 - 9

Bacon Bears,

Keys to Character Unlock Success!

Tough guys wear Pink! 
Thankfully, we dodged Hurricane Joaquin! Our safety patrol students did get to do their first rainy dismissal!

This week the teacher observations will begin. We will also have Mrs. Mackall stopping by on Thursday to help out with any specific questions teachers may have about One Drive. Also, there is no school on Friday due to teacher professional development.

Parents - The October newsletter was sent home with your child on Wednesday. Please contact the front office if you didn't receive one.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year we are encouraging everyone to wear pink on Fridays. We are partnering with Girl Scout Daisy & Brownie troop 51008 to bring some joy to those who are going through chemotherapy at local hospitals. Mrs. Lunemann is collecting materials so you can drop them off to Room 3. Here is the quick list of supplies by grade level:
Kindergarten - Lemonheads or Tart Candy (Helps reduce bad taste in mouth due to the Chemo treatments)
1st Grade - Small Lotion, chap stick, hand sanitizer
2nd Grade - Small Chocolates
3rd Grade - Word Find or puzzle books
4th and 5th Grade - Fuzzy Socks, scarves for heads. (These items help keep patients warm during their chemo sessions)
Please note that these are suggestions. If you want to bring in something listed in another grade, that is no problem at all.

October is also Connected Educators Month. Dr. Cook wrote a blog post that was published in Education Week - Check out the article here.
