Hello Wolfpack!

Code: yellow

Ms Zelski led us in The Pledge

Fall Fest: Parent and Fall Fest Chair, Soraya McQueen reminded us that the Fall Fest is this Saturday, October 21st, from noon till 3pm here at the Elementary Campus. Line up for the dunking booth now features Mr Hussain, Chef Bradley, Mr Underwood, Mr Weatherly, and Ms Morgan!

Little Free Pantry: Our current 5th grade will be taking leadership for last year’s 5th grade legacy project, The Little Free Pantry. Ms Derichsweiler introduced 5th graders Kai, Javon, Braylon, Tomas, and Turner who explained more about what The Little Free Pantry is and what they will be doing: It is a small wooden structure to collect food donations and other necessities. We have it so we can take action against hunger and food insecurity in our neighborhood. It is located here on campus, on Grant Street, next to the sidewalk just outside the media center and all members of the community can give or take from the pantry. A donation box will be at the front desk, please feel free to help by bringing donations. We will be collecting canned vegetables and proteins, dry foods in bags or boxes, personal care items, school supplies, and can openers. We cannot accept foods that can spoil, sharp objects, chemicals, or anything illegal. Thanks 5th grade!

Walk Around The Park: Members of the PTCA Wellness committee and parents Elise Vandermeer and Emily Staub invited parents to join them on the first Health and Wellness PTCA Social on Monday October 23rd. More info can be found here.

Book of the Week: Our media center will be collecting donations tomorrow at Grandparents and Special Friends Day, where family and friends can help buy some great new books for our wonderful library. For our Book of the Week this week, Maddie, 4th grade, shared One World, Many Religions by Mary Pope Osborne: It’s a book about different religions around the world. It shares about what they do, for example, some people read The Bible, some people worship in shrines, and  some worship individually rather than in groups. Thanks Maddie!

Song of the Week: We enjoyed the last performance of the week from the Golden Wolves: Get Back Up Again. Thanks Kindergarteners!

Mindful Moment: We took 3 deep breaths and sought our internal stillness for our mindful moment.

No Morning Meeting tomorrow due to Grandparents and Special Friends Day, so happy weekend from us!

We wish you well.
