The No-Shave November Challenge is ON!!!

Well, the State Road No-Shave November Challenge is on and in full force! I have seen and heard from many State Road families who have accepted the No-Shave November Challenge with me in our unified effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society! Whether you are rockin the full beard, sporting the stache, or growing the goat, it's all in good fun so that we can raise awareness and support for cancer research!

How can you help or donate? Simple! We have a "change jar" in the office with a $500 GOAL! If each student finds a dollar in change under the couch cushions or the car seats and brings that in, we will certainly reach our goal!

Also, check out my "no-shave" timeline pictures below and SHARE your "no-Shave" pictures on our State Road Facebook page as well! Thank you for all your support!!!

Hungry Howie's & Leo's Fundraisers!!!

THANK YOU to ALL of our families who have participated in our Hungry Howie's Night and Leo's Family Night Fundraisers! Each event brings in around $250 for State Road Elementary, and has helped us purchase laminating rolls, chart paper, and other classroom teaching supplies!

Please Help Prevent the Spread of Sickness, Head Lice, etc...

Parents: We have had several reported cases of Strep Throat and Head Lice. The best way to prevent the spread of sickness, communicable diseases, or issues such as head lice is to take preventative steps at home prior to sending your child to school. Please also contact the office right away to let us know of any sickness or confirmed case of lice that your child may have. For more ‘health’ related information, please visit the State Road website and select “Student Health Info” under the Information Tab. Thank you!
