Click for larger imageWhat a wonderful October is planned at Handley School. Thanks to all of the grandparents and special friends that joined us for Grandparent's Day. It was a great opportunity to have you visit classrooms, enjoy a treat, and browse the Scholastic Book Fair. It was a great morning thanks to our grandparents/special visitors and PTO. THANK YOU! Other October events include the Spooktacular Bingo that will be held at LPHS this year. This is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 16, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Hope you can join us. Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Wed. and Thur., Oct. 22 & 23. Please be looking for your confirmation letter that will give you the date and time of your conference. If you are unable to make it at that time, please call the school to reschedule. We will wrap up the month of October with Red Ribbon Week the week of Oct. 27. This is a great opportunity to talk to your child about being Drug Free!! Hope you get involved and enjoy the October activities with the Handley teachers and staff.

The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:

“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
