From Mr. Wingfield
Wow!! The last week has felt awesome outside and Fall weather is hopefully here to stay.
I want to give a shout out to our awesome PTO for providing our teachers with treats this week. I know our teachers absolutely appreciated it. Our PTO does so much for teachers and staff and we are always so thankful for all they do. They can't do what they do without support of parent volunteers, so thank you to those that are already involved. If you are not already a volunteer and would still like to be a part of PTO you can email
All of us know someone that has been affected by breast cancer and although we always support friends and family throughout the year, October is breast cancer awareness month. This month we will be wearing pink. You might ask why pink. Such a gentle, caring color-the exact opposite of breast cancer; invasive, aggressive, indiscriminate. The pink ribbon became the a symbol for breast cancer in 1992 for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, It represents the fight and fear of breast cancer, but also hope for the future.
October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month. It has been recognized every October since 1980. It's purpose is to raise public awareness and to advocate for acceptance and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome. It is also a time to make others aware of their abilities and accomplishments.
As always, if I can help in any way please let me know.

The Capturing Kids Heart focus for October will be Self-Directed Behavior
Self-Direction is the ability and learned skill to cast a vision of future goals and then take intentional steps toward who, where, and what we want to be. Instead of focusing on things to control or avoid, we emphasize our responsibility to make positive choices related to our emotions, attitudes, and actions.
We will be talking to students about positive choices and making sure our actions reflect those.
Our Student of the Month will also be someone who represents the quality of self-directed behavior and models it daily in class and on the campus.
