Great job, Rowe School!

   Great job, Rowe School! We raised over $1000 for hurricane relief efforts in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. An extra round of applause to the 3/4 class, who raised the most money: $464.85! They win a pizza party for their efforts.Thanks to everyone who participated, and to Rich Hamilton and the PTP for organizing a bottle and can drive that raised an additional $75. We are small but mighty!  We had over fifty children at Tailgate Trick or Treat last Friday, and over seventy people at the Community Pot Luck right after. A good time was had by all.  It was great to see so many people sharing dinner together.

Got all that? Call us if you have questions.
   The kick-off to the study of Canada was exciting and informative. We had a delicious luncheon of Canadian specialties, and Mary Jo Maichak, out artist in residence, performed for the whole school and worked with each class. We’re looking forward to seeing her again.                                                             
I found an interesting article on how to make the most of family conferences. I hope you find it useful: http://mindfullifetoday.com/how-to-make-the-most-of-your-parent-teacher-conferences/?mc_cid=96c8c47b98&mc_eid=7365f01eea
