Mid-October Newsletter

Dear Families and Friends,

The beautiful fall weather continues allowing for day after day of active outdoor recess play. With the chilly mornings and delightful afternoons, more and more jackets are left behind and Lost and Found (right outside the office) expands rapidly. Please check when you are in, or better yet, remind your child to check for lost items. If lost items have names on them, it is much easier to return them.

Our annual Book Fair is all this week. The library is open straight through until 7:00 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday.

PTO is sponsoring Stage Fright on Wednesday, October 28th. Dave Mason, the storyteller, will tell one story at each lunch on Friday, October 23rd to give the students a sneak preview of the family event. 


2015 Stage Fright

Wednesday, October 28th

Rowe School

5:15 pm (ages 4-9) or 7:00 pm (ages 10 and up)

New Venue ~ ALL new stories ~ Pizza included ~ New sound system

We are bringing back this fun family event with a few tweaks to add to the experience.

Mark your calendars now and look for the details coming home next week.



Teachers are scheduling conferences and many have already held them. If your parent teacher conference has not been scheduled, please contact your child’s teacher.

Yarmouth Education Foundation sponsors this year's Blue Jean Ball on November 7th.  This is a fun night of great food, music, and silent auction items.  Email info@yarmoutheducationfoundation.org

On Tuesday, November 3rd, we have a flu clinic for students without parents here at school from 10:30 – 11:30. On Wednesday, November 4th, a flu clinic for K-4 students is scheduled at Rowe School from 4:00 to 5:30.

If you have boys’ and girls’ pants that your children have outgrown, however, are still in very good condition, we could use them and we would be very happy to have them. Please drop them off in the office.

We are required by law to hold 10 fire drills each year. Your child may have mentioned that we “keep having fire drills”. The students are very efficient, cooperative and take the practice seriously. We have one more this month and will do the remaining drills in the spring. Our annual lockdown drill is scheduled for Thursday, November 5th; more information will be forthcoming.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any concerns, observations or questions. It is an honor to work in this leading school district with your children.
