Socktober Celebration!!

Student Council would like to thank you for your month long Socktober Sock it to Drugs support. The drive was a huge success with an amazing collection of 1,211 socks overall for the Community Store House. Third grade collected 297 pairs of socks, the highest number of socks overall, and gets to have a Crazy Hair AND Sock Day on Tuesday the 25th.

It was a lot of fun watching the students keeping an eye on all the boxes each morning as they entered the building. Our goal is to teach students empathy and that they can make a difference in the lives of other children and families. These small gestures show them that they do matter and can make a difference in our community.

Thank you again for your support!

Storybook Character Day: October 28

Due to the recent clown hysteria, Northwest ISD is limiting the Storybook Character Parade Day that many campuses host to the following restrictions for the costumes: There cannot be any of the following: face paint, head gear or head wear, no face masks, weapons, no scary character costumes. If you are not sure if the storybook character is appropriate for school, then it's probably not! Students should wear their school clothes under their storybook character costume. They will take their costumes off after the sing-a-long.
