October is here and Fall is in the air! The warm days and chilly nights are a welcome change from the constant heat of summer. October is a very busy month at school as we have several different things going on at Webster Elementary. I would like to take a moment to thank all parents for sending your students to school each day. Your children are a blessing and we are very thankful for getting to work with them each day.
Be sure to mark your calendar for some upcoming events:
October 14th—End of the First Quarter
October 18th—Parent Teacher Conferences 4:30-7:30 p.m.
October 20th–Parent Teacher Conferences 4:30-7:30 p.m.
October 21st-- No School
October 28th—Parade and Fall Parties
October 31st - No School
Your child’s teacher will be sending a sign-up sheet for parent teacher conferences soon. Please pick a time that works best with your schedule to come discuss your child’s progress. I will also be available if you wish to discuss any concerns, share celebrations, or ask questions.
We will kick off our Fall Party with a costume parade at the football field at 1:15 in the afternoon. Students from Hubble and Webster will be parading in costumes at that time. Please remember that we have a regular school day up until party time; therefore, parents will be allowed to come in at 1:15 to set up for the party. Classroom parties will begin at the conclusion of the parade around 2:15. Students need to bring costumes to school on party day; they are NOT allowed to wear costumes to school that day.
I wanted to take the time to remind all of you school policies for children attending school if they are not feeling well. If your child wakes up with a fever of 99.9 or higher then he/she needs to stay at home and be fever free without any fever reducing medication for 24 hours. If your child is vomiting or having diarrhea then they need to stay home, and be free of that for 24 hours also before returning to school. We also had several cases of pink eye last year, so if your child has a red eye that they say is hurting, or has yucky gunk in it then they should see a doctor. With pink eye the eye will hurt and the drainage will not be clear, if allergies the eyes generally itch and may be watery but the drainage will be clear. Please encourage your kids to wash their hands often at school. This will help prevent the spread of germs and hopefully keep your kids health and in school learning.
We had our Health Fair here at Webster in September and if your child had any areas that were concerning you should have received a letter about that in their backpack. If at all possible please return the bottom of those letters so that I know that you have at least seen it. If your child needs an eye exam and you do not have insurance and cannot afford one please call me or your child’s teacher. The Lions Club has a fund set aside to pay for eye exams and glasses with our local eye doctors.
Fire Prevention Month
This month's counseling lessons will cover "Making Safe and Healhy Choices." Red Ribbon Week will run from October 24-28.
October is Fire Prevention Month and Webster will be focusing on Fire Prevention the week of October 10th-14th. The Marshfield Fire Department will be spending the day at Webster on Friday, October 14th. They will be presenting an assembly on Fire Safety. Students will also have the opportunity to visit the Fire truck at Webster that day.
The Marshfield Fire Department will be hosting an open house for community members and would love to see all of our students visit them at the Fire Station for this special event. It will be Wednesday, October 18th at 6:30 pm. Students may choose to enter a drawing to win a ride in the fire truck. you must attend the Fire Station Open House to be able to enter the drawing for the ride. There will be three students drawn from Webster. Winners will be contacted by the Fire Department. Students may turn in their coloring pages at the open house event. If students are unable to attend they may return their coloring pages to their classroom teachers by Friday, October 14th.
