Message from Administration | October

Hello Marlborough Families!

The leaves are turning and the weather is getting chilly, we must be officially in fall! We have some very exciting things coming your way in October so please read the newsletter and calendar carefully so you can stay in the loop.

Despite uncooperative weather, The International Day of Peace was a huge success at Marlborough School! We shared songs and reflections about peace, created peace pennants for the gym and had our very first Peace Picnic in the gym over the lunch hour. It was a lovely day! A special thanks to Mrs. Ballem’s and Mrs. Nabe’s class for organizing our events and sharing their reflections during our gathering.

At 9:30am on October 6th we will be hosting our first of many informal sharing assemblies. These brief whole school assemblies are meant to bring students and staff together to celebrate the work going on across the school. It is amazing how excited the students get when they learn what other classes are doing! Please ask your child if they are presenting any work and join us in celebrating why #MarlboroughIsAmazing.

It is hard to believe Hallowe’en is right around the corner! We’d like to share a few words about expectations at school before you raid the racks for the perfect costume. Please ensure that IF your child chooses to dress up they keep the following in mind:

  • No weapons, blood or other scary items
  • We will dress up in the afternoon only – please come to school in regular clothes in the morning
  • Snacks – if you would like to send snacks in for the classroom please remember they must be nut-free and a healthy choice. We’d like to keep the sugar intake to a minimum as the children will be getting a sugar overload as they trick-or-treat!' For those families that do not celebrate Hallowe’en we will provide alternate activities for the children that afternoon.

Thank you so much for all your support. We appreciate parents as our partners and would love to see more faces at our first School Council Meeting on Monday, October 2nd!
