A Message from Mrs. Steele
Good afternoon, White Marsh families, this is Mrs. Steele with your update for the week of October 23.
This week is A Week, and White Marsh will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week. This week is dedicated to raising awareness of the dangers of drugs and alcohol. In addition, we will celebrate Unity Day on Wednesday to stand together against bullies. The schedule for Red Ribbon Week is:
Monday- “Drugs are Whack” (Students dress whacky and tacky)
Tuesday- “Put Drugs to Sleep” (Students wear pajamas)
Wednesday/Unity Day- “Sock It to Drugs and Unify against Bullies” (Students wear silly socks and orange)
Thursday- “Stay in the Game” (Students wear their favorite sports team jersey)
Friday- “Use Your Head, Wear Red” (Students wear as much red as possible)
Several other important announcements for this week: The Martial Arts Club on Monday has been cancelled. Joe Corbi fundraising orders should be turned in no later than Monday; please submit them if you plan to order. The Running Club will meet on Wednesday. A reminder that the dismissal time for Running Club is 4:30. Please send a note to the office if someone other than the person identified on the Running Club form will be picking up your student. Our Food Drive ends Friday; thank you so much for contributing to this worthy cause.
Finally, a reminder to save the date...the WMES Boo Fest is scheduled for Monday, October 30. This fun-filled evening event is sponsored by the PTA, and includes Halloween crafts and trick or treat festivities! This is a free activity. Volunteers and candy/non-candy donations are still needed for this free family fun night. Donations can be sent in to school or dropped off at school this week. Look for information in this week’s Wednesday Folder about the event itself.
Have a great week, White Marsh. Go Bears!!
