Hallo Studenten (hello studens in German)! Today is Friday, Oct. 30th and it's a great day for learning!

Welcoming Ritual: Halloween is coming up! Do you dress-up? What would you like to be for Halloween? What is your favorite Halloween candy or snack?

Nov. 3rd- NO School: November 3rd is now a federal holiday so there is no school for students and staff. There will also be no assignments that will be due that day as it is a non-workday. Please make sure to attend school on Monday and then pick up your week again on Wednesday.

National Calendar Day: There was a mix-up!!! Yesterday we put today's National Days!! Silly us :) so yesterday's National Days for Oct. 29th were:

  • National Cat Day

  • National Hermit Day

  • World Stroke Day

Today is "National Candy Corn Day". On October 30th, the country celebrates its favorite vegetable with National Candy Corn Day. In the late 1800s, George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company created candy corn. His sweet treat represented the bright colors of corn kernels. Originally, candy corn was yellow, orange and white. However, it wasn’t until1889 that the Goelitz Candy Company made the candy popular. Later, other candy makers developed a variety of popular colors and flavors as well. 

"National Speak Up for Service Day" Speak Up For Service Day on October 30th recognizes the importance of young people to be actively involved in community service. Too often, the good deeds of young people go unnoticed by their communities. Speak Up For Service Day gives recognition to the overlooked. It serves as a reminder to tell others about the contributions of young people to their communities.
