MESSAGE FROM MRS. FURMAN

We had a great picnic. It was wonderful to see so many students and families. Everyone enjoyed the ice cream provided by the PTO, meeting the teachers, and the school tours.


Please remember to drop off your children between 8:50 and 9:00AM. School begins at 9:00AM. If your child is late please park your car and come to the front door to sign them in.


In the afternoon, if you are picking up your children please remain in your car and have your name card visible in your windshield. Follow the directions of the police and safety advocate. This will help the process move safely, quickly, and efficiently. Thank you for your cooperation.


Sincerely,

Stephanie Furman

It is time to start thinking about Socktober!

Facts:

  • Each night in the United States, an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets.
  • Socks are one of the least donated items to homeless shelters.
  • Even a small act of love, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.
In October 2011, Brad Montague created SOCKTOBER.
Since then, sock drives have been springing up to benefit local shelters.



Kid President has teamed up with Socktober to spread the word. Last year, people on all seven continents donated pairs of socks!

We will collect the socks outside the Media Center from Oct 1st to Oct 29th

Our goal is to collect over 1000 pairs of socks!

SCHOOL HEALTH AND SAFETY

We continue to implement mitigation strategies we used from last year (e.g. mask wearing, hand hygiene, physical distancing), we will continue to follow the guidance of local and state health officials with respect to keeping our school community safe.

Be on the lookout for detailed updates from Superintendent Smith.
