From the Principal’s Office…..  This month is going to be “Spook”tacular, and truly kicks off the holiday season.  As we await the arrival of witches, ghost and goblins, we are finally seeing the weather starting to change, with that in mind please make sure your child has at least 3 changes of clothes in their cubbies that are weather appropriate.  We will start the month off with Fire Safety and the Intermediate and Pre-k children will be getting a visit from the fire department.   We will begin selling Boo Grams Oct. 12th until 26th.  They will be delivered to the children on October 28th.  Mark your calendars for October 30th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm we will be having our annual Fall Festival.

Finally, just a reminder I will be gone from October 16th through 23rd to attend the annual Nobel Learning’s Principal Conference.  If you need anything please speak to my assistant Ms. Robin or I will have limited email access so you can email me as well.
