Please follow these guidelines when planning your child's costume:

-Please make sure the costume is weather appropriate (students will go outside for recess)

-Students are responsible for their costumes not causing a problem during learning time.

-Face make-up, hairspray, etc. must be applied at home.

-No fake weapons of any kind are allowed at school.

-No fake blood and no scary costumes (if it would scare a kindergartener, please don’t wear it!)

All adults participating at school celebrations on October 31st must be clearly identifiable. No adults should wear masks or face make up please.

Here's to a safe Halloween!


Book Donations Needed

Hello, my name is Jenna Kamsickas, a Northville High School Sophomore. I am hosting a book drive to support schools that may not have the means to purchase books for their classrooms. I will be donating the books collected to two kindergarten classrooms, a third grade classroom, and several other K-5 classrooms in Redford. In your child's school, I have placed a box for donations. It would mean so much if you were able to donate new or gently used books, Thanks! Books will be collected through December 15th.

Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

Habit #7: Sharpen the Saw

What this means: Balance feels best. In order to maintain and increase effectiveness, we must renew ourselves in body, mind, heart and soul.

“I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep.”

“I find meaningful ways to help others.”

“I spend time with family and friends.”

“I learn in lots of ways and places, not just at school.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Go for a walk.

2. Read a book.

3. Volunteer in your community.

4. Value the difference in others.
