Dear Craughwell Families,

This morning we held bus evacuation drill. Craughwell staff as well as the Bus Driver reviewed bus expectations with the students and what to do in case of an emergency on the bus. The students then practiced exiting the bus through the Emergency Door at the back of the bus. All students participated in the bus drill. Our apology and thank you to all the parents that had to wait the extra time this morning while the drill was happening. Mrs. Barker and I stress that being respectful, responsible, and peaceful on the bus is extra important. As you are well aware, the roads can be hazardous. We want the driver’s focus on the road. Please discuss with your child the importance of being respectful, responsible, and peaceful on the bus.

Last night was our Family Night Out event at Potbelly’s. I saw several Troy Craughwell families enjoying dinner and catching up with friends! We thank you for your support. Our next Family Night Out will be in October! It should be a “golden” night!

Affy Tapple Fundraiser begins today. Students should not go door to door to sell items. You may want to ask family and close friends or coworkers if they would like to purchase a treat. Money and orders are due Thursday, October 12. Checks can be made payable to Troy Craughwell. Unfortunately, we cannot accept late orders. All orders and money must be turned in by the end of the school day on Thursday, October 12. Please be sure you put your child’s full name (first and last) and teacher’s name on the order form and envelope.

Next week is Grandparent’s Week. Grandparents are invited to come to Troy Craughwell to have lunch with their grandchild(ren). The students will eat lunch as usual (either a hot lunch or from home). Grandparents will need to bring a lunch. If Grandma or Grandpa want to bring a lunch for their grandchild, we ask that it be a healthy lunch, rather than fast food. If a grandparent is not available, your child can invite any special adult. Below are the dates and times for lunch for the grade levels.
Fourth Grade – 11:50 a.m. on Monday, September 18
Third Grade – 10:40 a.m. on Tuesday, September 19
Second Grade – 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20
First Grade – 11:15 a.m. on Thursday, September 21
Kindergarten – 12:25 p.m. on Friday, September 22

Our annual Mother/Daughter Girls’ Night Out is scheduled for Thursday, September 28 at Troy Craughwell. The event will begin at 6:00 PM and ends at 7:30 PM. The doors will open at 5:30 PM. Craughwell girls and their mom or a special adult lady guest are invited to an evening of fun! There will be dancing, crafts, photos, and refreshments. The theme for the festive evening it is “My Mini-Me”. Come dressed alike - like twins! Reservation and money due by Thursday, September 21, 2017.

SIP Early Dismissal time is at 11:50 a.m. On early dismissal days breakfast is served, but lunch is not served. Below is a list of the SIP Days for the rest of school year.

It may seem a little early to be talking about Halloween, but I’m sure your child has seen the costumes in the stores and are trying to decide what exactly he/she wants to be for Halloween. We will have Halloween parties on October 31st.
