Where did September go? I can’t believe how quickly we are going through this first nine weeks!
This week is Roadrunner Warrior Week! All of our kiddos will be outside and active on Friday during Encore time. You are welcome to come and see the fun. Keep sending in those packets if you still have them.
This week is also Farm to School week. The GCPS menu will feature locally grown produce Monday through Thursday, including broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, cabbage, and lettuce direct from Goochland farms. On October 4, GCPS will participate in the “crunch heard ‘round the Commonwealth”, with all students having the opportunity to enjoy a Virginia grown apple at 10:00 a.m. Read more about this here.
We’d love to increase PTA membership signups. You can do it easily online. Only 4 classes are approaching 50%. A reminder that the class that gets to 100% membership will get some extra recess and their teacher will get a special gift.
Mrs. Vaughan, our librarian has posted information about the All for Books Coin Drive. This was mentioned a few weeks ago in conjunction with the supply collection for Hurricane victims. We went ahead and sent home a specific flyer and collection baggie at the end of this week. More information about this can be found online. We’ll collect coins through October 20th. We were thrilled to already get $65 in after the first day the flyer went out!
Looking further out: The Goochland Drama Department’s production of Little Shop of Horrors will take place October 13-14th at 7 PM and 15th at 2:30 PM. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults. We hope to see you there! For more information, please visit drama.goochlandschools.org.
And make sure your calendar is marked for Grandparents and Special Guest night. That is on Thursday, October 19th from 6:30 to
We’ve got a fun Wild West theme. Classrooms will all be open to
the great things that are going on. We’ll also have the book fair, yummy snacks, and a fun photo booth. We hope everyone can come.
I hope you have a great week.
Dan Gardner, RES Principal
