Did you know that Renfro School has 605 students from Pre-K through 4th grade?  Some of our students are learning to communicate with words, some with signs and some haven’t stopped communicating since they learned how. Some of our students get from place to place in wheelchairs.  Some of our students get from place to place with adult support and some of our students help others get from place to place.   We have students with varying health needs, academic needs and social/emotional needs.  Needless to say, there is always some excitement at Renfro and we love every minute of it.  Thank you for being a part of it! 

·       The Renfro SmART club will begin meeting on Oct. 16th from 3 to 4:30. The club will meet on Mondays that we are in school through November 20th.   

·       Tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 13th is the exclusionary date for not having proper health records on file at school. Please turn those in as soon as possible.     

·       Fall festival is Tuesday, Oct. 24th from 6 to 7:30.  Information will be sent home today.  If you can donate to our Sweet Tooth walk—a package of individually wrapped treats, we would greatly appreciate it.  We are also looking for volunteers to work different booths that evening.  Let us know (through the flyer sent home) if you will be able to help. 

·       I really appreciate how you all work hard to keep the car line moving in the mornings.  The entire process is expedited when your child is ready to exit the car, you pull as far up as possible in the circle drive, you stay in your vehicle and you take a right out of the driveway.  We want everyone to be safe out there but we also understand the urgency of the drop off process.  Please follow the correct procedures in the mornings.

·       Save your box tops for education.  We get 10 cents for each box top we send in.  We will collect those in the spring. 

·       If you need to change the way your child is going home for the day, please call the office (618) 346 6265 by noon. 

·       Papa John’s night is tonight, Thursday, Oct. 12th

·       On Saturday, Oct. 14th, the Collinsville CUSD 10 Title 1 department is teaming up with the Caseyville fire department to promote literacy and fire safety.  This is a free, family-fun event from 11 to 3 at the Caseyville park in Caseyville.  Everyone is welcome. 

·       Picture retake day is Tuesday, October 17th. If you want retakes, please send your packet/proof sheet back in with your child on that day.

·       Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled for Oct. 26th and 27th.  Students will not come to school on those days.
