October Newsletter

Trunk or Treat
Trunk or Treat will take place on October 31st at 1:00 p.m. The students may come to school in their costume and wear it for the entire day as long as they can sit comfortably in their seats. Our classroom will be participating in fun fall activities during the day before Trunk or Treating.

Proper Costumes
It is important that your child’s costume is appropriate for school. Scary costumes will not be permitted at school. Students are allowed to wear masks during trunk or treat only. Face paint is allowed in small amounts. For an example Kitty whiskers and clown nose. If you have any questions about your child’s costume, please feel free to check with the office to see if it’s appropriate. Thank you for your understanding.

I will be starting the Book-it! Pizza Hut program this month. It’s a great incentive program for reading that runs from October to March. Each month a calendar will be sent home with a goal of minutes of independent reading for the month. Our goal in fourth grade for October is 480 minutes (8 hours). If that goal is met, your child will be rewarded with a certificate for Pizza Hut.

Character Counts Presentations
Each month Oakland Academy has a character trait that we focus on. At the end of the month teachers select one or two students that exhibit that trait in school. The trait for October is Responsibility. I will be looking for student/s who show responsibility in our school community. The awards for character traits are presented at the end of the month by Mrs. Boris. The winning student/s get to have a pizza lunch with Mrs. Boris. Congratulations to our September winners Bella and Jason for showing the character trait of Compassion! 

Family Fun and Safety!
October is fire safety month. This would be a great time to create and practice a family emergency plan in case of a fire.

A Great Start!
The school year is off to a great start. We are all adjusting well to our routine and having fun learning with each other. If you have any questions or concerns I am available at 7:30am every morning and after school until 4:00pm. You can also reach me through the Remind app or with a note in your child’s planner.

Have a great month!!
Mrs. Reeves
