The money we raise is going towards a new playscape!!  In your child’s folder you will find your child’s pledge book with all the directions on how to get started. Tonight please go to funrun.com and register your child to participate in our Tiger Trot Fun Run!! If your child is registered TONIGHT they may come to school in a silly hat (or any hat) tomorrow (10/31). Our goal as a class is to have everyone registered. Let’s do it!!!! 🙂

About Red Ribbon Week:

Red Ribbon Week is a time for us to focus on healthy behaviors and drug and bully free choices.   The theme is “Life is your Journey-Travel Drug Free”

 

Red Ribbon week was started all across the United States in 1985 in honor of a United States drug enforcement officer who was harmed by people who sold drugs.  People started wearing and displaying red ribbons to show support for the fight against drugs. This month, October, is also National Bullying Prevention Month.

 

This week we will have special fun theme days each day to show our support and remind us of the fight against bullying and drugs as well as our decision to make healthy choices.

****Remember, You still have to wear standard school attire bottoms  (except for career dress up day)!!

If you have not sent in your pumpkin please send it in this week!

Thank you!!
