Turn Clocks Back and Change Batteries

Take advantage of Daylight savings time and do two tasks. Turn your clocks back November 1, and check and change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

Challenges that help us grow

The above quote is often attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt, who did make a similar statement in 1960, "You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

On Halloween week, we may participate in spooky activities. We might also consider challenging ourselves to try something new and potentially scary each and every day. Adopting this habit may help us become less frightened of new challenges.

Learn about Mary Schmich and others who challenge us to do "scary" things.

Deadline has passed for Submitting Health forms

6th grade students who have not submitted a school physical with an immunization record are now required to learn remotely until the form has been completed and submitted to the Health Office.

All forms can be found on the District website, and dropped off at the office, or sent to school with the student and given to their teacher.

A Spirited Week Indeed!
