Hi Warwick Bears!
Friday, October 30th will be a colorful spirit day, all students and staff will be invited to wear Halloween colors (i.e. orange, purple, green, black, etc.) to school. We will also be having a whole school virtual bingo from 1:45 - 2:30. Bingo winners will receive fun prizes and our grand prizes will include target gift cards! Teachers will also incorporate various Halloween themed classroom activities leading up to Halloween. All 15 elementary schools will not be having a Halloween parades or classroom parties this year.
Additionally, I invite parents and guardians to submit Halloween costume photos of Warwick students. We will create a virtual parade slideshow highlighting Warwick students dressed in their Halloween costumes. Please send all pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, in order to create a slide show to share with students.
Have a great weekend!

News from the Nurse
- The students have been doing a great job at school washing their hands and wearing their masks!
- Daily amounts of essential vitamins are another good way to boost kid's immune system to help prevent illness.
- Vitamin C is not stored in the body, which makes it important to consume it daily. Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables including strawberries, oranges and broccoli.
- Always consult your child's pediatrician if you have concerns about healthy eating or starting a vitamin supplement.
