    Dear College Wood Families, I feel like I just blinked, and it is October! There have been so many fun activities at College Wood in the past month. We started September with our first family themed night of the year: Science Night. There were so many fun experiments throughout the building for our students to complete and learn hands on about various principles of science. A big thanks to Dow for helping us out again this year.

    Hopefully you also had a chance to stop by the book fair. It is one of my favorite events of the year. I love to watch the excitement of our students as they walk in the LGI room and explore the magical world of books. We also had our first Party with Parents event of the year: Tailgating with Dads. I hope your student(s) had as much fun as mine did playing games on the Creekside track. Be sure to check out some of the pictures from all these events at the bottom of the newsletter. Our goal is to provide quality experiences for CWE families for FREE. I hope you were able to take advantage of one or all of them. Looking ahead, plans are being made for the Fall Harvest classroom parties. You will be hearing from your room parent(s) soon about this fun party for the kids. It is a great way to kick off the long, Fall Break weekend. After Fall Break we will celebrate Bus Driver, Bus Monitor, and Mechanic Appreciation Week. We will spoil them with goodies throughout the week to show our appreciation for delivering our kids to and from school safely all year. Have you been clipping your Box Tops? This is a great month to turn them in. At the end of October there will be a drawing for an iPad. See the Box Top information below for links on how to turn them in and get entered in the contest. Finally, mark your calendar now for our next PTO General meeting on Thursday, November 3rd at 6:30. Mrs. Olssen and some the CWE Staff will be offering you background information about the SuperFlex program that you have been hearing about. They will be giving you tools and strategies you can use at home to continue battling the Unthinkables. Wishing you safe travels if you are heading on an out of town adventure for Fall Break! I hope to see you around school soon. As always, dont hesitate to contact me with questions, suggestions, or if you want to get involved. All my best, Sue Herrmann CWE PTO President 2016-2017 collegewoodpto@gmail.com
