Veterans Day (Friday, November 10)
On Tuesday, Christi Moran and I are meeting with someone from the technology department to see if we can figure out how to stream the ceremony into the Kindergarten-3rd grade classrooms. We are hoping it will also be recorded in case you are unable to watch it live due to your schedule. We will let you know if we are able to do this as soon as we know.
Thank you to our amazing committee members, and a special thank-you to Laura Huffman for chairing this committee. Barbara Holsome has been working hard to prepare our students for this program, and I know they will do an outstanding job. Bring your tissues for this day!

End of Day Duty Reminders
Voting on November 7
If you did not vote early, you will need to vote at your polling site. There is a school board election, and I cannot stress enough to you that local elections have the potential of having a great impact on each of us. Please do not assume that others will take the responsibility of educating themselves and voting on our behalf. If educators alone voted in all elections, we could swing just about any election. Sadly, we have a record of low voter turnout. Sally will be happy to provide a jeans pass to you after you vote.
Thankful for Our Volunteers!
Super Citizens Day
Box Top Collections
Organizing Papa John's Pizza Night and TX Roadhouse Rolls Fundraisers
Providing Delicious Apples for each staff member
In October our volunteers helped with Boosterthon, Book Fair, popcorn for the staff, Picture Day, and health screenings, and December will be another remarkable month!
During this month when it is popular to give thanks to others, please help me in swarming our PTO with notes of appreciation. We have a PTO meeting on Monday, November 13, and I'd love to bring them a box filled with notes of appreciation. Students can write letters, but it would also be wonderful to have a personal note from each staff member. I will get a decorative box for these and will keep it in my office. Please take a moment next week to write a note and drop it in the box. I'll bring these to the PTO meeting on November 13.

November/December Twitter Challenge #RESholidaybingo
Congratulations to our October Twitter Challenge winners: Stacie Moreland, Jennifer Vargas, Emily Gunn, Connie Kubis, Christi Moran, and Kelly Oetken
This next challenge is similar to our Summer Selfie Bingo Challenge. This is a Holiday Bingo Challenge. You will receive one drawing slip per bingo (up to 5 bingos) and 6 drawing slips if you get a blackout! When you complete a challenge on the bingo card, you'll need to post a picture (or video) of you completing the task AND a picture of the bingo card with that square marked off. Save the picture below to use in your posts. If you need help with how to mark the card or how to post the picture, there are several staff members that can help--just ask! Have fun with this one!!
