Toledo School District posts this link about absences, saying: Health issues are one of the main causes of absences. Asthma is just one of those health issues. An excused absence is still an absence. Absences add up and subtract from learning.

With Hurricane Irma touching down less than 2 weeks after Hurricane Harvey made landfall, this one-minute video narrated by Mr Rogers confirms a child’s good decision, and reminds us of that special seed helpers plant in each one of us.
Thanks to Educator Annie for the linked story.

Toledo High School reminder:
Those summer things will be outgrown by next year anyway. Help the Class of 2018 raise funds for their senior class trip while clearing out the closets.
Kids Closet accepts new and nearly new apparel & shoes for students K - 12 throughout the year. Contact TES PTO for details.
BTW: those items deemed too worn, inappropriate* or otherwise unsuitable will be donated to THS Class of 2018 Textile Drive, getting all possible mileage from your hand-me-downs while benefitting this year’s senior class - and the environment.
The Second Annual Esther Borte Walk in the Park fundraiser takes place in less than 2 weeks. Contact Jill Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org or stop in at City Hall during business hours. Details on Facebook.
Reservations required: Toledo Senior Center Nutrition Lunch Wednesday features roast beef with mashed potatoes & baby carrots, peaches & dinner roll, Friday BBQ ribs & scalloped potatoes with NW veggies, mandarin oranges & biscuit.
Nutrition Lunches are sponsored in part by Area Agency on Aging. Suggested donation $3 for those 60+ years of age. Contact Diana, email@example.com or call (360)864-2112 for details.
Beginning Tuesday: Toledo Senior Center announces a new Needleworking group 10 a.m. for knitters and crocheters, needlepointers, stitchers and menders of every stripe, expert or novice, AND most especially for those haunted by unfinished projects put aside (but really, really would like to complete) in the company of like-minded souls.
Alternate weeks will be personal hands-on works, and instructional or demonstrations of specific methods. Caution: Word has it topics may wander to ethnic and specialty cooking as the holidays approach.
Open to the community. Updates as available. Contact Diana, firstname.lastname@example.org or call (360)864-2112 for details.
