Mrs. Walker’s Blog Bits… Week of October 25th:

Dear Amelia Elementary Parents;

Happy Sunday.  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  The weather was beautiful and the Walker household spent it on the soccer field…  I am sure that many of you were doing the same thing 🙂  

We have another busy week ahead of us.  Amelia Elementary students and staff will be celebrating RED RIBBON WEEK.  This is a great way for everyone to celebrate the decision to stay drug free.  This would be a great time for you to reinforce the dangers of drugs with your children as we will be stressing the same message.  During each day of the week, we will be supporting our drug free message by participating in spirit activities.  I invite your child (and parent volunteers) to participate:

  • Monday:  “Put a Cap on Drugs”   Wear your favorite or silly hat
  • Tuesday:  “Sock it to Drugs”  Wear crazy or mis-matched socks
  • Wednesday:  “Wear Red for Red Ribbon Week”
  • Thursday:  “Team up Against Drugs”  Wear your favorite sports team gear
  • Friday:  “I Elect to be Drug Free”  Come to school dressed in red, white and blue

GIRL SCOUTS:   Any girl interested in joining the Girl Scouts may stop by the Amelia Branch Public Library Monday night between 7:00-8:00 pm.  There is a 12 dollar registration fee but financial assistance is available if needed.

BUTTER BRAID FUNDRAISER:    Just a reminder that the Butter Braid orders are to be turned in no later than Thursday, October 28th.  Late orders will not be accepted!

KROGER CARD FUNDRAISER:     We just received our first Kroger card fundraiser check…  It is for $223.84 for the period 9/5 – 10/2.  During that period, Amelia Elementary families loaded $5,596 onto the cards!!!  What a simple way to earn money for our school. Lets keep the Kroger dollars coming!

 Keep checking the blog site for photos from Red Ribbon spirit week as well as of our first assembly (“Inspector I Wanta Know”) to be held in the new school.  As always, I appreciate your support in making it a great time to be an Amelia Tiger!

Have a wonderful week,

Mrs. Walker
