Mr. Ruppe's October Newsletter

October 2022

Thank you so much for another amazing month at North Elementary!

**UPDATE** We will extend our North Spirit Sale until Monday, October 3rd.

We will begin using the Pick-Up Patrol App in October. This app will be used to make afternoon transportation changes. Information letters have already been sent home (see below for the letter that was sent home). Please make sure we have a working email address on file here at the school. If you need to update yours, please call the school or email

We have lots of exciting things going on in October! We will be kicking off our Relay for Life this month. There will be a Relay Spirit Night at Love's Fish Box on October 4th from 4pm-9pm. Please consider picking up dinner this night to support the North Relay Team! We will also have a Hat Day/SnoCone sale on October 12th.

Picture Day is on October 6th. Flyers were sent home last week. These are the pictures that will be used in our Yearbook this year. Makeup day will be on November 8th. The last day to purchase pictures online is October 28th.

PTO will be doing a Halloween Candy Gram fundraiser beginning October 10th. Candy Grams and money will be due back by October 24th.

The end of the First Nine Weeks is on October 14th. Report Cards will be sent home on October 26th. The CCS Fun Run will be held on Saturday, October 15th at Shelby High School. Please make sure your child attends if they signed up! There will be No School on October 17th.

Parent Portal letters for PowerSchool access are available in the front office with Mrs. Gilbert - please stop by and pick yours up if you have not done so.

I am looking forward to all of the exciting things we have coming up this month!
