                       Fall is Here!

Just a reminder: PTO Meetings will be held at Olivet School.  The PTO graciously sponsors our field trips, school assemblies, and much more.  Our PTO meeting this month will be held on October 8th.  The topic will be Room Parent Round Up.  Come out to get involved and informed. 

Hopes and Dreams: My hope and dream for this month is for the children to experience the gift of new friendships as they continue to learn and grow with their new classmates.

We will celebrate School Spirit Days on the first Friday of each month; show your Elmer Pride by wearing your blue and white.

Halloween Safety Tips:  Plan out route in advance/ Wear well-fitting shoes/ Avoid costumes that drag on the ground/ Children’s masks should allow for full visibility and breathing/trick or treaters should be accompanied by an adult/ candy should not be eaten unless checked by an adult/ Establish a time limit.  These are just a sample of helpful safety tips.  Remember safety first and have fun!

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.  Be on the lookout for a new activity during recess called Mileage Club.

Enjoy the Fall Months! Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  ~Albert Camus –
