Mustang Memo - 10/28/22

Happy Sunday Mustangs~

Fall is in full swing, and the rainy season has officially begun.  Please send your child with a jacket and appropriate footwear as we have recess outside rain or shine.  As October comes to a close, we will focus on a new character trait for November - caring (last month was respect).  Show you care through compassion, being thoughtful, expressing gratitude, helping others in need, forgiving others, putting others first, performing random acts of kindness, and being a listener.  Join our efforts and share with your child how your family expresses caring.  

Tomorrow, October 31, is Halloween.  It is a time when people dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating (go from house to house saying, “Trick or treat!” and receive candy), and carve jack-o’-lanterns from hollowed out pumpkins.  The origins of Halloween date back to several ancient festivals held in autumn.  In ancient times, the holiday was marked by customs started by pagans.  Pagans believed in many gods rather than a single god.  It was believed that on the last night of October, the spirits of the dead roamed the earth.  The holiday is also called All Hallows’ Eve.  In the Christian church, All Hallows’ Eve is the night before All Saints’ Day.  On November 1, All Saints’ Day honors all the Christian saints.  

For those of you celebrating Halloween and going trick-or-treating tomorrow, have fun and be safe! 

Until next week, 
Meghan Griffin, Principal (
LaTisha Joseph, Assistant Principal (
