From the Principal's Desk

How lucky are we to have yet another beautiful Saturday?!?

The weeks are just flying by. It's NOVEMBER!! This month owns my favorite holiday...Thanksgiving. It's that holiday where we spend time appreciating one another around the dinner table after having spent the morning at my two of sons', Micah and Lucas, football game. While we have several, there are two traditions in our family that we are most proud of:

1. We, as in I, put a sticker under a random chair every year. Everyone chooses their own seat and just before we sit down everyone looks under their chairs. He/she who has the sticker wears our "turkey hat" for the meal. We always start Thanksgiving with some fun!

2. Any family member is allowed to invite people for Thanksgiving. Usually this is someone whose family is far away. We've been lucky enough to host people from: California, Israel, China, India, Kenya, and Swaziland.

What are your traditions? I encourage you to chat about these as a family. Who knows? Your children may have some new and intriguing ideas.

Just a few updates and some information as we head into the next week:

1. Our phys. ed, art, and music teachers would like to share their newsletter with you. Click here.

2. Mrs. Barros, our school nurse, would like to remind those of you that signed up for the Dental Sealant Program that it will be taking place November 4, 5, & 6 of this week in the nurse's office.

3. Please check out the links we share below. A new one that was added is the STAR site. This site was created by our specialists to provide tips, strategies, and resources to support our families.

4. Please make sure to call the 24 hour absentee line when your child will be absent or significantly late - (508) 883-8029.

5. The Book Fair is ONLY two weeks away! We can't wait here at DiPietro! Click here to learn more about it.

Looking forward to next week!

Your principal,

Mrs. Friedman
