Fall into November!

We are in the throws of fall and November is shaping up to be a busy month.  Please be on the look out for information coming home soon about Parent Visitation for American Education Week.  As the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches, I begin to reflect on what I’m truly thankful for . . . friends, health, and especially family.  I hope you enjoy a restful Thanksgiving Holiday. 

Dates and Events to Keep in Mind

Book Fair:  Our PTO sponsored Book Fair will take place on November 27th, 28th, and 29th.  The Book Fair will be open to parents the night of Wednesday, November 28nd from 6 pm to 8:00 pm.  We look forward to seeing you. 

American Education Week:  American Education Week will be celebrated the week of November 12th.  This week presents all with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate public education and honor individual educators who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education.  Please be on the lookout for more information to come home about parent visitation.  "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." -- Albert Einstein

The children will go outside everyday for recess as the weather permits.  Please dress children appropriately for any kind of weather condition as well as for the use of our playground equipment, for example: appropriate footwear.  Our goal is to keep students safe and comfortable during this important time in their school day.     

DARE Program:  Our Salem County Sheriff's Department will be conducting DARE lessons in our Kindergarten classrooms.  Please see the link to topics that will be shared with your children.
