Dress Safely Reminder
Please remember, wear something reflective if you’re walking home after school, sports practices, or games. It gets dark so early now, if you are wearing dark clothing, it makes it very hard for drivers to see you. Please be safe!
If your child is playing sports, please remember to schedule a sports physical.
Book Fair Time
We will have a soft opening on Friday, November 15th for parents and visitors that will be here during the Thanksgiving Lunch. Books will be available for purchase.
Upper grade students and parent volunteers will set up our ARCTIC themed fair on Monday.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, teachers and students will look at the books and make wish lists for themselves and the classroom. These selections will be posted for those who would like to sponsor said books for any of the classrooms.
Otherwise, 11/20 (Wednesday) & 11/21 (Thursday) will be the heart of the book fair as far as purchasing goes.
Here is a link to our HOMEPAGE for the fair:

Christmas Angels with the First Congregational Church of Blue Hill
Christmas Angels are gearing up for their 31st season, spreading holiday cheer. The program provides gifts of warm clothing to children in need who reside full time in Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Orland, Penobscot, Sedgwick, Surry and Deer Isle/Stonington. The Christmas Angels Program, coordinated by the First Congregational Church of Blue Hill, depends on the generosity of individuals, clubs and businesses. Last year, 119 children were served from 55 families across the Blue Hill Peninsula.
Each Angel will be provided a detailed list of a child’s clothing wishes, including age (newborn-18 years old), size and any specific needs; up to 3 items per child. Shopping will take place in November and early December, with distribution of gifts on December 5th and 12th. If you would like to be an Angel, contact Ruth Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 374-2003.
You can also help by donating new books and stuffed animals, unwanted 2020 calendars and Christmas cards, which can be dropped off in Fellowship Hall (downstairs at the Church) in the marked containers. Financial donation are always welcomed and appreciated. Checks made out to First Congregational Church of Blue Hill, with the notation “Christmas Angels”, can be mailed to PO Box 444, Blue Hill, ME 04614.
To receive assistance from the Program, pick up a request form from your school office, the Church Office (22 Tenney Hill), Tree of Life Food Pantry or the Island Food Pantry. Early sign-up is highly appreciated.
