This year is off to a great start! We will be having our first Character Education Assembly this month celebrating our C.O.U.G.A.R. trait - Courageous. The K-3 assembly will begin October 26th at 1:15 and the 4-6 assembly will begin at 1:45. Grades 1 and will be introducing November's C.O.U.G.A.R. trait - Optimism. Each month staff looks for students who are exhibiting these traits to be recognized with cougar paws and possibly an award at the assembly. If your child is being awarded this month, you will receive a letter inviting you to the assembly. However, any parents that would like to attend the assembly are always welcome.
This month we will be kicking off our ElementaryStudent Council meetings along with oue Lego Club for grades 3 & 4. We are continuing our amazing Library Club for grades 4 - 6 while we expand our game club this year to include grades 5 - 7. We are excited to be able to provide all of these afterschool clubs to our students this year.
Continuing with our tradition, we will have a Halloween parade for our students in grades K-6. Please be reminded that "toy weapons" will need to remain at home. Accessories such as guns, swords, or any other weapon will not be permitted in school. In addition please keep in mind that some of the more mature costumes containing blood or that are scary looking may frighten some of the younger students in our building. While these may be ok for trick or treating, we would ask that they stay home during our school festivities. Our parade often involves walking up and down stairs. Please use caution when sending in a costume to ensure that your child will be able to navigate walking and stairs independently. The parade starts at 1:15, weather permitting we will march around the bus circle out front as well as the hallways and the cafeteria.
