Welcome to October!
This is a busy month for us here at the Robert Morris School.
We started out with the Week of Respect, organized by Mrs. Santiago, our Guidance Counselor, along with Dr. Samantha Suarino, our School Psychologist. Students took part in activities and attended assemblies reminding them of the importance of treating each other with respect. One of the highlights of the week was a skit designed by a group of young ladies who formed an anti-bullying club. They taught students about the difference between teasing, conflict and bullying.
Picture Day is October 12. Smile pretty for the camera! :-)
The week of October 16 is School Violence Awareness Week. Once again, students will take part in activities which highlight the importance of conflict resolution. This is supported by our Leader in Me approach, which emphasizes the importance of listening (Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood) and creating solutions to problems (Think Win-Win).
The South Bound Brook Police Department hosted by the South Bound Board of Education is sponsoring a Hidden in Plain Sight presentation on Tuesday, October 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the McLaughlin Gym. See the flyer on the website. This is an adults only event.
The PTO is sponsoring a Trunk or Treat on October 27 and of course, Halloween is Tuesday, October 31. Please remember this an early release day for students. Dismissal is 12:38 p.m. on early release days.
I hope that all of you enjoy these crisp fall days with the smell of apples and pumpkins in the air!
