HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

With the coming of October 31, the Halloween season is upon us.  Again this year, as students plan the costume they will wear to school for their parties we want them to keep in mind two restrictions.  NO blood or weapons will be allowed as parts of the costume students wear to school for the Halloween Party.  There are various reasons for this, among them a desire to reinforce the ban on weapons in schools (even pretend ones) and a desire to deemphasize the gore without hurting the excitement of the day.  We are sure that students will be able to find a wonderful costume without the need for blood or weapons.  Parties will be held in the classrooms on Monday, October 31.

Service Project for Space Camp Scholarship

         The North Tama Elementary Students will be having a “Space War” (penny war) to raise funds for the Traer Community Space Camp Scholarship. Because of this scholarship up to two North Tama students (Grades 6-11) are able to attend Space Camp each summer in Huntsville, AL. Space Camp provides unique and highly challenging educational experiences that are important for preparing students to be college, career, and citizen ready. North Tama Elementary is focusing on community and school service for Character Counts this year, and this is an excellent opportunity for our students to help our school.

         Students are encouraged to bring pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, ……any kind of money (even dollar bills!) for our fundraiser. The fundraiser will be a fun competition for our students while their efforts will raise money for our community scholarship.

         Rules for the fundraising competition: Each class will have a container to collect their money. Pennies will be added to the class $$ total. Other kinds of money will be subtracted from the class $$ total. (So students will want to add their non-penny money to other classes’ containers to lower that class’s $$ total.)

 

 

Not only are these fundraisers typically successful, but they are fun, friendly competition between the classes. The prize for the whole elementary at the end of the competition will be to know we helped our school. This is a great example of our Character Counts program in action.

         Feel free to pass the word. We would be glad for any money for our fundraiser (coins, bills, checks……) The important part is to do service for our school.

The “Penny War” will run from

Monday, October 3-7, 2016.

 

Thank you, The North Tama Elementary Teachers
