Over the past few years, our school has collected money for UNICEF. At today’s Community Meeting, we discussed how the UNICEF organization collects money to help children around the world by giving food, medicine, clean water, and even school supplies to areas less fortunate than ourselves.
Children may Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF by bringing their boxes with them as they get treats. Many people have their money ready to put into their boxes along with candy to put in their bags. It’s a great feeling to know that while the children are getting candy, they are also helping children around the world. Please remind your child to take their UNICEF box out with them as they enjoy Halloween fun! They may return the boxes to Mrs. Robinson’s room or the office. Thank you so much for raising such caring and generous community members!
Here is the REVISED Session I list of non-athletic After School Clubs being offered by the Oak Bluffs School. Changes are highlighted in blue.

We will be getting into delicious healthy recipes, making our own herbal products, and maybe even doing some yoga and gardening!
