Parents of 8th graders, please send a note to school with your child to let Mr. Flood what days of the week are good for an 8th grade meeting (meeting times are usually 6 pm).

Thanks to the Alexander Volunteer Fire Department and First Responders for visiting AES for Fire Prevention Week on Friday.  Pre-k-3rd learned how to stop, drop and roll and how to stay low to the ground.  Each student got to try the maneuvers.  David Sullivan, Jan Sullivan and David Davis were inside with three student fireman.  The students were given a coloring book full of safety tips.  Grades 2 and 3 went through the school counting exit signs, fire extinguishers and fire alarm bells.  They also had a fire drill, to make sure of the importance of being quiet and quick.  Their homework was to go home and make sure they knew where their safe family meeting spot was.  They shared these on Monday at School.  Grades 4-8 were all outside going over the fire truck and ambulance.  Crash (Ed Burgess) was also inside with the younger students.  

The 2nd and 3rd Graders are still looking for legos.

Please continue to save box tops.  The schools also collects used ink cartridges from printers and old cell phones and remember to save your can tabs.

The Alexander Library theme this week was all about fall.  The book read was “Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf” by Lois Ehlert.  The students made fall leaf wreaths and sang fall songs.  The older students checked in and out books and used there time wisely as a study hall.
