October Edition

A Message from Mrs. Robertson

The month of October is exciting and many students are looking forward to Halloween. We have several activities planned for this month, so please take a moment and check the information below.


As cooler weather approaches children will begin wearing jackets and sweatshirts to school. Please make sure that their names are on them. When the mornings are cool and the afternoons are warm, students will take off their jackets or sweaters and they tend to get lost.
