PTO MEETING NOVEMBER 3rd: There will be a Safety Protocol meeting on Thursday, November 3rd @7pm for Memorial and Francis Wyman families. Steve Cross will join us in a discussion about changes in our school safety protocol.










From the Nurse: Halloween safety - please remember that costumes should be comfortable, fireproof, and reflective. Eyeholes should allow unimpeded vision. All candy should be inspected for safety (no sharp points or dangerous parts). Flashlights should have new batteries. Younger children should trick or treat with an adult and only go to known neighborhoods. Parents should know where older children are going and set a return time. HAVE FUN AND BE SAFE!

This year’s assembly will be held on Wednesday, November 9th at 1:15. Families are welcome to join us for this special ceremony. If you know a veteran or someone who is currently serving in the Armed forces, please invite them to attend.
