THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18TH- HALF DAY OF SCHOOL/ PARENT CONFERENCES
Walk To School Day was a huge success Wednesday. Students from JRB and Oakmont gathered on the football field with their classes. High schoolers and our elementary kids had some laughs together as they went through streets of town from Oakmont to Briggs. The sights and sounds were truly remarkable.

A Note From First Student
At the beginning of the year bus stop pick-up and drop-off times are estimated using mapping programs. If you have found that your bus stop times are a little different, plan for the times that your bus most consistently arrives at and always give yourself a few minutes before that time.
New Donations Needed
Thank you to the families who donated so generously to our fifth-grade Operation Welcome Mat project. We hope you were able to join us for Ready, Set, Glow to see how the students put the items to use in our science garden and nature trail.
This month, fourth-grade students will be working on a “robot band” design challenge. Once again, we need your help to make the project successful. Please send any of the following recyclables into school with your child.
- Tissue boxes (any size)
- Small (no bigger than 1’ x 1’) cardboard, plastic or Styrofoam food containers (cereal boxes, granola bar boxes, vegetable trays)
We appreciate your help and support. Questions? Email Mrs. Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
