This week…

This morning we had our annual Safe Kids Orange County Walk to School. We had several students join us at the Town Green for a safe walk to school. A big thank you to IU Health Paoli for sponsoring the event, and also to officers Tom McCracken and Andy Andrews for escorting students to school.

Fundraiser items will be delivered to school today. If your child sold items, look for those to be sent home after school today. Payment for items is due October 10. Thank you for your help with this annual fundraiser! We truly appreciate the great parental support we receive.

Things I noticed last week

  • How well-behaved students were during our IU Health Day of Service activities last Friday.

  • The great school spirit shown by students and teachers.

“Reach Higher” thought for the week

“If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right” – Henry Ford

Solar Eclipse

This is a reminder for parents and guardians that your child will be coming home with a waiver form regarding the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21.  We have purchased glasses approved by NASA and the American Astronomical Society, and we will be going outside to witness the eclipse for a few minutes on Monday afternoon. The waiver form should be signed and returned to school if you DO NOT want your child to participate.

Teachers have been instructing students on proper use of the glasses, as well as the importance of never looking at the Sun without the glasses.

Again, if you DO NOT want your child to participate, please return the form or send a note to school.

Thank you!
