October 4 is Walk or Bike to School Day. We encourage all town students to walk or ride their bikes to school while following all of the safety rules. If your child rides a bus, we will drop off all elementary students at the high school, and we will walk to the elementary. Kids Club has kicked off for the school year! At our first Kids Club meeting, students had the chance to meet their newest club members and name their group. This month, Kids Club will focus on the Reading Without Walls Challenge. Fundraising pickup will be on Tuesday the 17th from 3:00-6:00pm in the elementary lunchroom. Please be prompt in delivering the items to those kindly purchased. We appreciate all of the support! Parent teacher conferences are already upon us! On October 24th and 25th, parent teacher conferences will run from 2:00-8:00. If you have any concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher before conferences. On Saturday, September 30th, teachers at Grundy Center Elementary hosted teachers, librarians, and other children’s book lovers from around the state for the third annual Think In. The participants learned via Web conferencing from keynote speaker and children’s book guru, Colby Sharp along with authors, Joseph Kuefler, Jess Keating, Katy Kelly, and Judd Winick. Every participant went home with prizes and free books! Students celebrated International Dot Day by creating dots and painted rocks which now decorate the area below the television in the lobby. Dot day is celebrated with the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds and emphasizes creativity and growth mindset. There is a lot to look forward to in October! Brian Sammons, Elementary Principal
