It’s Elementary

Brandy Blanton, Elementary Schools nurse, provides weekly news and tips for helping children at home.

Thanks so much to Polly Macon for the thoughtful donation of school supplies. Thank you also to Amanda Cornet for her generous donation of clothes to our clothing closet. Anyone who has gently used uniforms, shoes, or belts that you children have outgrown can donate those to the school. These will be put to good use and greatly appreciated.

October 6th – 12th was National Fire Prevention Week. According to the National Fire Protection Association’s website (www.nfpa.org) Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless and destroyed more than 17,400 structures. In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson issued the first National Fire Prevention Day proclamation. This year’s National Fire Prevention Week theme is “Prevent Kitchen Fires,” stressing that cooking is the number one cause of home fires, and a significant contributor to home fire deaths. Mr. Detrick Sanders and the Louisville Fire Department will be conducting fire safety education classes to students at Fair Elementary on October 16th.

During the month of October, we are celebrating Fire Prevention Week, Red Ribbon Week, and Cancer Awareness Month. Students at Fair Elementary will participate in events throughout this month that will help educate them on fire prevention, fire safety, breast cancer awareness, and drug awareness.

DATES To Remember: October 21st – No School! Parent teacher conference day from 3-6pm.
