October 31: Halloween - Hallway Parade 8:20am

October is a fun month for our kids at ZR. Fall is here, and Halloween is right around the corner. Kids are welcome to wear costumes on October 31st. Here are some guidelines we ask students to follow in regard to costumes:

  • No bloody or scary costumes
  • No fake weapons
  • No costumes that would be classified as inappropriate according to school dress code.
Students will be parading around the building at 8:20.


We are starting our new art program this month. Each grade will have an "art day" each month for the rest of the year. Our goals for this program are to:

  • create art and reflect upon what they have made.
  • seek and construct meaning through encounters with art.
  • create narratives about artworks.
  • understand the historical and cultural contexts of works of art.
  • discover the significance and value of art in their lives.

The artwork students create this year will be displayed in May at our first school-wide art exhibit.

Cooler Temps

This is a reminder about the cooler temps. Please take a minute to talk to your child about wearing appropriate warmer clothes. Also take some time to write their names in their coats and jackets. We get a lost and found full of jackets and coats each year. This will help us identify who they belong to.
