For the rest of RESPECT WEEK...
 Thursday-  "Mismatched Day."  Regardless of how we look or dress, we all fit in here at school.  It is a fun way to show that through our differences we are all connected.  
Tomorrow's challenge is for students and staff to mismatch their clothes as a symbol of celebrating and respecting our differences.  NO pajamas please.
Friday, "Help. Encourage. Respect Others" Day.
Our message stresses that "As a school, we are part of the greater community."  We will hold our first "Hat Day."  Students who make a donation of any amount will be permitted to wear a hat during school on Friday, October 8.  The Hat Day will contribute much-needed funds to the Warren County Domestic Violence Center. The Center had a bad fire and the residents, who were fleeing domestic abuse and staying at the shelter, lost most of their possessions!  All proceeds will go to help in the recovery effort!
