Happy Halloween

Scary greetings RES families!

What a fantastic Fall Festival we had! I must confess this is one of my favorite PTO events. I simply adore seeing all those kids dressed up. This year we had a salt shaker! How creative is that?!

Did you see the Storm Trooper with the AT-ST from the Galactic Empire? So cool! We had many scary costumes as well as some adorable ones!! A huge shout out goes to Jaime Costanzo, who organized the event even adjusting to last minute changes. Thank you to all donations and volunteers! This event wouldn't have happened without your help!!

We hope your kids enjoyed Red Ribbon week as much as we did, with the neon colors, superhero day, and spirit wear. Make sure you touch the subject of saying NO to drugs with your kiddos. As for Box Tops, keep on collecting them. We will have another collection day in the winter. We are now looking forward to another great Fall week with Halloween in the middle. Let's see what we have coming up.
