The Masquerade Festival was a smashing success. Thank you to everyone who supported this event. A special shout out goes to Sally Crew and Cassandra Patterson for coordinating such a wonderful event!

RED RIBBON WEEK is this week, October 22 – 26. To celebrate this week’s events in style the PTA has donated a special limited edition Spirit Stick to be sold by Safety Patrol starting Wednesday until sold out. You will be able to sign a “Bully Free” pledge and have your name included on a poster in the auditorium.

Monday – Wear bright/neon clothes and sunglasses to demonstrate “I am too Bright to do Drugs.”
Tuesday – Wear your favorite sports apparel to “Team up and Tackle Drugs.”

Thursday evening October 25 at 6:30 pm we have a “Bully No More” presentation. This presentation will give parents and family members important information about “Bullying” and what we as a Wolf Canyon community can do about it. Our special guest speaker is Helice “Sparky” Bridges founder and CEO of Difference Makers. She has received recognition from former first lady Barbara Bush, spoken at events with the Dali Lama and was the recipient of the 2005 TKF Gandhi Nonviolence Award. Her stories have been featured in who has been highlighted in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work and Chicken Soup for the Soul of America.

Friday, October 26 is our annual “Law Enforcement Day” where family and community members highlight their roles in Law Enforcement on our blacktop from 9:00 am – 11:00 am. If you hold a job in law enforcement and would like to participate contact the school office at 619-482-8877.

The final “Walk to School” event is on Friday, October 26. We will meet next door at “All Seasons Park”, weather permitting, as early as 8:00 am and walk to school as a group at about 8:15 am. Parents are welcome to walk with us. In the event of rain this event will be cancelled.

Looking Ahead:

We will be collected cans for our Canned Food Drive next week from October 29 – November 13. All canned foods will go to families in our community who are struggling.

Discovery Elementary will hold a TB skin test clinic on November 6 and 8 for those interested in volunteering at Wolf Canyon and need an updated TB skin test on file. The TB skin test is good for 4 years.
