It's time again for the Interact Club's annual campaign to support breast cancer awareness with Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund.  This Friday we will hold our Think Pink Day. Students are encouraged to donate $1.00 to wear pink on Friday.  I will have my little helpers running around with pink ribbon stickers this morning for you to hand out if anyone donates.  Any money can be collected or you can send them down to my classroom.

Also, later this week I will be passing around the UNICEF Halloween boxes.  Sorry for both these events being so close together, but anything you can do to support these causes is greatly appreciated.  Thank you for all your help!

Reed Food Drive to Help Others!

Newtown’s Faith Food Pantry needs our help. They provide food to many families right here in Newtown, but their shelves are almost bare. Please consider helping by donating a nonperishable food item. You will find a collection box in the lobby. Let’s spread kindness by helping out those in need, and let’s try to fill the shelves before Halloween!

We want our students to stay hydrated, but we can only allow students to bring water into the classrooms. Flavored and colored drinks, when spilled, attract bugs and stain our carpeting. Thank you for your cooperation!
