Dear Parents/Guardians,

It was wonderful to see so many of our Dads at our “Dad’s Take your Child to School” Breakfast and Assembly. Thank you for being involved in your child’s school life. October is conference time. Please be sure to schedule a conference with your child’s teacher. Your child’s progress so far this year will be discussed. This is your time to ask questions regarding your child’s academic and behavioral progress. October 10 will be a Conference Night here at Sebastian Elementary and there will be no 21st Century that day.

Parents we are having our 1st Title One and 21st Century Parent Night on October 21, 2019 at 5:30 PM. ALL 21st Century Parents remember that you must attend at least one Parent Night for your child to remain in 21st Century. This month’s Parent Night will be an I- ready Night. We will discuss the importance of I -ready and give you information to help your child at home with I -ready. This is an excellent night to attend.

Parents our FALL pictures will be taken on October 11, 2019. FALL pictures are Uniformed Pictures only. Any student out of dress code will be asked to change before their FALL picture is taken. Uniformed shirts are Solid Colors no Stripes or Large Logos.

This month our Casual for a Cause donations will go to The American Cancer Society. For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been finding answers that save lives. Please help us raise money for this worthy cause by participating in our Casual Day on Wednesday, October 9, 2019. Casual Day is 1.00 to dress in your favorite outfit with sneakers. If you wear a pink outfit, we are taking a group picture in our “pink” for the yearbook.

Our first Attendance Party was a success. We want to thank the Sebastian Police Department for donating the Snow Cone Machine and Syrup. Students wear your “Brag Tags” with pride and hopefully we will see you at our next 100% Attendance Party on October 31st.

On October 31st, we will have a Book Character Parade @ 9: 15 AM in the bus loop. Parents this is not a Halloween Costume Event. You child should dress as a Book Character with their favorite book. Parents can gather on the bus loop benches starting at 9 AM to watch our Parade. Please do not park in the bus loop. This is a fundraiser for our NHS students. There is a 50 cent fee to participate and all donations will go to the National Honor Society students here at Sebastian Elementary. Please see the information that will be sent home regarding the requirements for the parade. Parents we are not celebrating “Halloween” and there are no Halloween Parties here at school. Please do not send in cupcakes, candy or “treats” on October 31, 2019.
