November 20, 2020
One of my favorite things about November is how I'm always reminded of how generous and caring our community is. We've collected hundreds of canned food goods for our food drive, families have reached out asking how they can do more to help, and even our friends up the street at Staples have stepped up to support our community. On Wednesday, Ken Maisano and Rick Romero from the South Attleboro Staples donated a pick-up truck full of school supplies including pencils, glue, whiteboard markers. and many other items. We're so thankful for their generosity!
Don't forget, we only have school on Monday and Tuesday next week. For the safety of all of our families, students and staff, I urge you to follow the governor's guidance around travel and seeing extended family over the holiday. If you do travel, please be aware of the state's travel guidance as well as the Attleboro Public Schools' travel policy for students. It was sent to you a few weeks ago but I've also included it as an attachment to the email I sent containing the link to this newsletter. You can also find it here: Student Travel Protocol.
Lastly, Hill-Roberts is a Title I school which means we qualify for and receive funding from the federal government to help ensure that all children meet our challenging state academic standards. As such, we are required to provide all of our families with the Title I Home/School Compact. Please take a moment to click the link to view that important information.
With next week being a short week, there will be no Howler. Enjoy the break!

This Week in PE
Hello Hill-Roberts Families!
Our huskies have been working extremely hard in physical education classes both in-person and online. I am so proud of the effort most students have put into being physically active and learning how to take care of themselves. We have made some improvement to our disc golf course and our huskies in grades 2-4 enjoyed it, along with some great weather! This week we have been working on badminton skills and rules of the game, before starting our Thanksgiving Fitness Activities! Huskies in grades kindergarten and first grade have been working on rolling skills during our bowling unit and have now moved onto practicing overhand throwing skills. At home, most of our huskies have been doing awesome work on their google classroom working on locomotor skills like sliding, jumping, and hopping!

Hill-Roberts CREST Winners
During the school day, (whether in-person or at-home) huskies who exhibit our core values of Caring, Respect, Excellence, Safety & Trust can earn a CREST ticket from their teacher. Each student who earns a CREST Ticket has their name placed into a drawing to earn a weekly prize that is picked by Mrs. Cotsalas. Their name is called during the morning announcements and they get their photo taken with a CREST Certificate.
Congratulations to the following students for being our CREST winners for the week of 11/16 (photos to follow next week!):
