Socktober

September 30, 2016

This month student council and Mabry will be participating in Socktober!  What is Socktober?  It is a month long event where you can help donate various items to help local homeless shelters.  It doesn’t have to be just socks.  You can donate:

•     Socks

•     Blankets

•     Deodorant

•     Soap

•     Shampoo/Conditioner

•     Toiletries

•     Brushes/Combs

•     Feminine hygiene products

•     Underwear

•     Baby wipes

•     Antibacterial Ointment/Bandaids

 

Students can bring in their donations to their Student Council rep all month.  With your help, we can make this Fall and Winter more comfortable for those in need.  If you have any questions, please email Jessica Strauss at jessica.strauss@sdhc.k12.fl.us

Mabry students, grades 1-5, are looking forward to a visit by two wonderful authors, Roland and Marie Smith. They will be at Mabry on October 21 for the full day. Marie will speak to grades 1-2 and Roland is speaking to grades 3-5. They started their drive from Oregon to Florida on Thursday, September 29 and will stop at schools to speak to  students along the way ending up in Orlando at the Florida Association for Media in Education state conference to speak to Florida media specialists. They agreed to come visit us after the conference.

 

After your students hear about their stories and about their life as writers they will want some of their books.  An order form came home with your student on Friday, September 30. You have an opportunity to order books from Barnes and Noble at a discounted price which will be delivered to school for Roland and Marie to autograph for your child. The form will be on the Mabry Media webpage also. It is due back to school by Tuesday, October 4.
