RBERN for Parents

October 2020 Parent Newsletter

RBERN is funded through a contract with the New York State Education Department.

Welcome parents!

Please check out all the information that we have for the month of October!

October Fun Fact

The name of the month of October comes from the Latin “octō”, meaning “eight”, because in the Roman calendar October was the eight month of the year. With the adding of January and February at the beginning of the calendar after the Julian calendar reform, October became the tenth month of the year, as we know it today.
