NATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY
Mark your calendars: National Walk to School Day is October 6th!
All K-8 students will have the opportunity to participate in this event. The goal of this day is to raise awareness and support for the health, community, and environmental benefits of regularly walking to school.
Concord Staff will be meeting students on River Street (by the old Medical Center). Parents who regularly drop their students off at school can start dropping them off at 7:40AM. Buses will also be dropping students off at this location. Concord Staff will begin walking with students to the school at 7:50AM. Those who cannot participate can still be dropped off at school as staff will be there as well. If you have any questions about the event, how to participate, or would like additional information please contact Mike Arbuckle.

K-8 SEL CORNER - YELLOWJACKETS OF THE WEEK!!!
Please take the time to congratulate any familiar faces you see in the picture below because they are our YellowJackets who most exemplify PERSEVERANCE!
Do you know what the number one predictor of whether someone will be successful in school (and graduate!) is? It’s not how pretty, funny, or smart they are...it’s whether or not they have perseverance! Some people also call perseverance “resiliency," "grit," or “having a growth mindset,” but what all those things really mean is: having the ability to keep working toward a goal, even when it’s hard and there are challenges to overcome.
