THANKS BEVERLY CITIZENS BANK for furnishing awards for our honor roll students. It is very much appreciated!

SNOW DAYS - The time is drawing near when bad weather may cause school closing or delays. In this event it will be broadcast on radio WXIL, WMOA/WJAW and WNUS. It will also appear early on WTAP-TV and wtaptv.com. On rare occasions school may be dismissed early during severe weather. Please make arrangements for your child in case this is necessary. It is impossible to call parents and our lines are too busy to take your calls.

LOCKDOWN - Our school is required to have a practice lockdown drill before Dec. l. Lockdown will be used in cases where safety of students is involved. For example: stranger is in the building, gun fire, police helicopter overhead, civil disruption and/or active shooting in the building. Hopefully we will never have to use a lockdown but we must be prepared. Please help us to make sure that your child is not frightened. It is similar to a fire or tornado drill.

GENERAL MUSIC
- The first grade students will be making a music project in class and so we're requesting any empty Kleenex boxes for one of the materials. Thank you so much for your contribution!
School coats are a must at Waterford Elementary, hats and glove would be helpful! Please teach your child to store hats and gloves in their coat sleeves and/or coat pockets. Students will be going outside in weather warmer than twenty degrees. Cool air wakes up the mind and in addition kills weak germs. Students get sick from germs, not winter air. Please help prepare your students for outside winter fun by encouraging them to dress for the weather.

THANKSGIVING - For the third year Jukebox Pizza if offering a free traditional Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving day from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to anyone who would like to come. Questions call 984-8881.
