To celebrate this time of year with our Oviatt and Lakewood families, our wonderful PTO is hosting a fall festival. This is not a money raiser (no money needed), but a fun family night. Thursda Oct. 24, 5-7 p.m. on the Oviatt playground there will be a meal for the family, fun outdoor activities such as bobbing for apples, pumpkin decorating, face Rainting, bean bag toss, sack races, gooey grab, hula hoop contest, football throw and great live music. You don't want to miss this fun family event. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs to enjoy the meal picnic style. This event would not be possible without the creative juices of our PTO, Watch D.O.G:S. and Fareway. Hope to see you there! Box Tops Do you clip the box tops from food items in your home? Oviatt collects box tops and is able to redeem for money that supports the cleaning, food and items for the fish tank, which is a favorite of students. The money is also used for other items needed in the school. We collect box tops all year but are asking people to send in what they have by October 28. We will be clipping, organizing and sending them in for a November turn-in. Send any box tops to the Oviatt office. Thanks for your support! Parent-Teacher Conferencp. Parent-teacher conferences are a time to meet with all our parents to talk about your child's progress and our goals for the year. The teachers and staff here at Oviatt want to help your child grow academically and socially this year and we know that a partnership with home is a vital part in that growth. Oviatt conferences are: Tuesda) Nov. 5, 4-7 p.m.; Wednesday, Nov. 6, 4-7 p.m.; Thursda Nov. 7, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. If you haven't signed up for you r child's conference, contact the Oviatt office (981- 1005) to set up times with teachers. All teachers will be present during conferences, so it is a good time to meet with special teachers (music, computer, PE, art) also. Thank you for your suppor t and together we will help your child have a successful year. Wednesday, Nov. 6 We have a change in our Wednesdays schedule November 6. Due to conferences we will NOT have an early dismissal November 6. Students will have a "regular" day November 6 with dismissal from 3-3:10 p.m. Note this on your calendar. Red Ribbon Week Red Ribbon Week is scheduled for the week October 28 - November 1. Red Ribbon Week is a time when we focus on making good choices with how we treat others (no bullying) and saying no to drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Each day has a different focus with lessons throughout the week on making good choices. I encourage families to take time to talk about these topics with your children, giving them a chance to share what was talked about in school and your expectations as a parent for your children. Monday: Red Ribbon Bracelet Day Tuesday: Wear Red Day (students and staff sign pledge posters) Wednesday: "Orange" you glad you're not a bully (wear orange) Thursday: Red Licorice Day Friday: Be a Super Hero; Have the power to say no to drugs and bullying (dress as your favorite super hero) We will be hosting a Pre-Red Ribbon Week Food Drive October 21-24. Students and staff are encouraged to bring in canned food and shelf-stable food items to help support the Norwalk Community Food Pantry. Thank you for supporting our com- munity!
