A note from Mrs. Lowe

In the last newsletter, Mrs. Lowe shared an article on the benefits of family meals shared around the table. These benefits include the likeliness of better grades in school and the decreased risk of drug, alcohol and nicotine use. This week, we are sharing HOW to have a healthy family table. Implementing these tips will increase the enjoyment of all family members. We hope many of you were able to add at least one additional family meal to your week.

Trunk or Treat

Planning for the Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 12 is underway! However, there are a couple of areas where we need your help.

1) The plan to have around 30 trunk or treat spots is falling short. Therefore, Please let us know if you would like to decorate a trunk and bring candy to hand out to our little trick or treaters.
