Page 12 Bouse Elementary School updates Message from the Principal, Mrs. Rebecca McClenning Wow! I cannot believe it is October already! It seems like school just started yesterday. This month in CHARACTER COUNTS our students will be studying "Trustworthiness". When we are trustworthy we are honest, don't deceive, cheat, or steal. We are reliable, and have courage to do the right thing. You build a good reputation, by being loyal by standing by your family, friends, country and school. We have a busy month ahead with Picture day (10/6), Columbus Day (10/10) Bus Safety Week and CHARACTER COUNTS WEEK (10/17-21), Red Ribbon Parade (10/22), Fall Festival (10/27), Parent Teacher Conferences (10/28) and Halloween (10/31)! There is a lot going on so look for notices in your child's back pack daily. This October, the Choir will be working on learning some scary tunes to perform at the Fall Festival on October 27th.
