October and November are very busy months. The Book Fair begins Monday and Family Night is on Wednesday, October 23. We hope you can join us. On Friday October 25, the PTO will be hosting the 5th & 6th grade Halloween party. That evening is also the Student Council 7th & 8th grade dance. Next week also begins Red Ribbon Week and Violence Awareness Week. Please ask your child about the activities that take place and have a conversation about these difficult topics. Vaping has been in the news recently for illnesses and deaths related to this new and very popular practice. These companies are targeting teens, so please be sure to express your disapproval. Believe it or not, parent disapproval is the number one deterrent for teens when it comes to substance abuse, whether it be alcohol, nicotine, or other substances. Officer Scott of the LPPD will be coming to speak to parents about the dangers of vaping. I’ll be sending out information soon. Hope you can join us.
Please take a moment to discuss the Halloween memo from Mrs. Nilsson with your child. Halloween is a fun day for everyone, but student safety is paramount. Please keep our rules in mind when planning a costume for school.
