With the weather taking a turn, it's important for students to dress warmly for safety patrol. Gloves and rain boots are great. (They will need to change out of the rain boots for inside the school). We provide rain ponchos but if a warm hat is desired, that will fit under the hood.

Touching Safety Program- I will be teaching the fall lesson to 5th graders on Wednesday, Oct. 25th. In your Thursday folders you will find an Opt-out form for this program. Only fill this out if you choose NOT to allow your child to participate.

Please take time to log in to Power School and check your child's progress. We can celebrate successes and address any concerns you have at conferences next week.

Thanks to those of you who signed up for REMIND. This app comes in really handy for quick reminders and emergencies.

That's all for now. . . .

See you at conferences.
