Newsletter worthy...Second Grade Safari
The THS Drama and Art students along with the Second Graders were chosen to construct 'Sea Creature' ornaments for the State Christmas Tree.
The three step process included drama students reading and performing monologues on sea creatures. The 2nd graders then drew a creature for the THS art class to work with for the final assembly with the 2nd graders. The project produced some amazing pieces of art, providing some time for our students to get to know each other.
U.S. Food and Drug Administration asks:
Do you use cosmetics? The FDA wants your feedback on a proposed consumer survey about allergens in cosmetics! The proposed survey will help FDA better understand consumer perceptions regarding allergens in cosmetics and consumer decisions about whether to purchase specific products or avoid certain ingredients, when to contact a healthcare professional & when to report an adverse event. https://go.usa.gov/xPdyw

Washington State Parks & Recreation Commission reminder:
Washington State Department of Natural Resources posted:
Get this story: Two guys are accused of walking into a forest, poaching $12,000 worth of timber. The excuse? They had a Discover Pass, and thought they could chop down trees for firewood. Full article here: bit.ly/2SOD9rS
• Discover Pass lets you access some public lands.
• But it DOES NOT let you cut firewood.
• You CAN apply for a different firewood permit.
• But you have to go to a harvest site.
• Go here to learn more: bit.ly/FirewoodPermit
So here's the thing: The theft of public wood harms schools, universities, state mental hospitals and other local services that benefit from timber sales. Please be respectful of public lands.

Our school is hosting a sock drive! Help us give to families in need in Lewis County.
Since Jane started forest school, we've gone through an awful lot of socks... I'm pretty sure she just learns better with her shoes off! The daily ritual of finding and washing abandoned, muddy socks gave us the idea for a community service project. Wood Sorrel Forest School in Toledo is hosting a sock drive this month! More info in the flyer here - thanks in advance for helping out!
TES PTO posted: I think of all the fundraising ideas out there, "renting" the reader board for the day is brilliant. It promotes a lot of positive reactions for kids when they see their name in lights! A couple pros; all money earned is kept at the elementary school for students and teachers and kids light up when they see their names on the marquee. The cost is $5 for 24 hours. Another great way to promote positive messages to the youth at Toledo Elementary School
Thank you so much to our first three Student Shout Outs! Can't wait to see your students name next! $5 for the day or $20 for the week- sign up sheets in the school office!
Today: In the month of November all students in Toledo School District will be trained, at an age appropriate level, by a certified ALICE instructor.
The elementary will train today, November 8th.
Please note, any ALICE drills that are done within the district will always be announced as drills. If you’d like additional information on this training please contact the school principal.
Next up: The high school will train on November 15th.
