EVENTS AND NOTICES
8th GRADE PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR BOOK FAIR
We are looking for parents of 8th graders who would like to volunteer with the book fair. It is held on September 26th from 7:30am until 7:00pm. All proceeds go to benefit the 8th-grade class trip. Please contact Margaux Vaillancourt @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
NAMES IN CLOTHING AND GEAR
Just a Friendly Reminder
Family members, please label students backpacks, lunch boxes and coats with their names. This helps school staff members return any lost items to their owner.
THE ONLY SEPTEMBER WALKING WEDNESDAY WILL BE ON THE 11th
Normally, Walking Wednesdays are on the first Wednesday of the month. Because that would be awkward at the beginning of school year, we have pushed the date back a week to September 11th. In October we will have Walking Wednesdays every Wednesday. LINK TO ROUTES AND TIMES
COMPLETED PAPERWORK NEEDED
Families, your child should have returned home with a folder of papers to fill out and return to the school. The completed forms are vital to the function of the school. Please send them in to your student's teacher as quickly as possible.
WALKING SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM IS EXPANDING WITH STUDENT LEADERS
There are some missing applications that need to be turned in immediately this Friday morning. Take them to Mr. Craib's desk in the Makerspace.
Selection of the student leaders will take place on Friday the 6th. The selected leaders will gather in the library on Monday, September 9th at 7:45 AM for training. Leaders will start their jobs on Tuesday the 10th.
RENAISSANCE NEEDS YOUR COMPOST!
Renaissance is ready to start taking breakfast and snack compost from your classrooms. Please bring it to the Renaissance community and dump it into the buckets at the end of the hall by 2:00 pm each day. Renaissance will compost the food waste to make nutrient-rich soil for the school gardens.
Please make sure there is no dairy or trash in the compost.

ANOTHER SET OF TWINS
Mr. Mello and Mr. Brown work together in the same Bridges learning community. They came to school dressed alike - totally unplanned. Are there other dress-alike twins out there? Students or teachers, or students and teachers?
