International Walk to School Day: Wednesday, October 7.
Really, every day should/could be walk to school day, but this day is set aside to encourage more adults and children to walk to school together to raise awareness about:
* The importance of teaching children safe walking behaviors, such as how to cross streets, and how to select safe routes to school.
* How easy and enjoyable walking is! Adults and children spend healthy, active time together doing the world's simplest exercise - walking.
* Taking specific steps to create more walkable communities such as advocating for more crosswalks, sidewalks, crossing guards and better driver behavior.
If you live close enough to school to walk or even ride your bike to school, and you haven't been, give it a try! It's a nice, peaceful way to start the day and a great opportunity for conversation with your child and greetings between neighbors.

Teach School is Collecting Used Ink Cartridges
Got some empty laser or inkjet cartridges hanging around in your drawer? Don't have a handy postage paid HP envelope? Been waiting to get around to taking that inky think over to Staples, but you can't seem to remember to grab it on the way out? Bring 'em in! Teach School can use them. Much to our delight, we have helped our school by turning in used ink cartridges. We receive $3.00 per cartridge and have been able to bring in $60.00 per month which is used by Mrs. Crabb and our teachers for much needed school supplies. Please help us out by bringing in your used cartridges to the office. All brand cartridges are eligible for a refund. Stick those empties in your car and drop them off with your kids in the morning.

Don't forget, there is NO SCHOOL Friday, October 30. (It's a teacher workday.) Also, the week of November 2-6 is parent conference week: MINIMUM DAYS all week with a 1:00 p.m. dismissal time.
