October 2021 Newsletter
A Word from Mrs. Koperno
October is always a fun month at school…we’ll be diving into all things Fall as we gear up to the busy holiday season. October is Red Ribbon month. The end of October (October 23-31) became formalized as Red Ribbon Week in 1988 by a proclamation of the United States Congress. Red Ribbon Week activities are organized each October by tens of thousands of schools, government agencies, and social service organizations. The main purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to celebrate and promote positive choices and healthy, drug free lifestyles for young people and adults in the United States. MAA always celebrates Red Ribbon week with fun activities. Details will follow.
Students in all grades, may choose to wear costumes to school on October 29th. Please note that children are not permitted to wear scary costumes or masks, bring sharp edged props such as sticks, swords, knives, weapons, have bare midriffs, feature blood and gore, etc.
Fall Break: There is no school October 4th-8th.
