As October is Fire Safety month, we will be reviewing these practices, and Fire Station 41 will be visiting us. They will bring a fire truck and give a presentation in the parking lot on October 11, at 10:00 am. We will continue to have the Scholastic flyers going home once a month. However, the book fair expectations were too much, so we have decided to not have that this year. For the costume parade, children may choose to wear whatever they would like as a costume. Although, no accessories or weapons are allowed. We need parents to not park in the north lot, adjacent to the playground, on October 31st. On October 31, at 8:50 there will be the Halloween Costume Parade.
