The Saxtons River Village Halloween Parade led by the fire truck was once again a rousing success. It was fun to see children and adults of all ages in costumes. The weather was perfect. Christine Armiger made and donated two delicious soups, her Vermont Academy students were on hand to help serve, and Andy Conrad donated rolls that were a perfect accompaniment to the soups. Many students put on glow necklaces to encourage a safe evening. Many former students and students from other schools were participants. What a fun tradition!

It was wonderful to see so many families at our Title 1 Reading Night Wednesday.

Lifetouch will be taking school pictures on the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 3rd. Please look for information in your student’s backpack and through emails. Thank you!
