Mabry Minute for Week of 10/6/19
The 11th Annual Walk-A-Thon is coming soon!
On Saturday, October 26th (9AM-Noon) students, families and staff will gather at the Coleman Track to walk together and raise funds for our school. Last year's Walk-A-Thon proceeds went to installing overhead projectors in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms. As students raise donations they earn prize bags filled with free meals at local restaurants, Mabry swag, and even Hydro Flasks. Homerooms can earn recess gear or ice cream parties. More information can be found HERE. Interested in volunteering? Email us or sign up HERE.
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 students in Hillsborough County (grades K through 12). It doesn't have to be just socks. You can donate:
*     Socks
*     Underwear
*     Soap
*     Shampoo/Conditioner
*     Antibacterial Ointment/Bandaids
*     Brushes/Combs
*     Hygiene products
*     Deodorant
*     Baby wipes
*     Other Toiletries
Bring in your donations to your student council rep by Oct 25. If you have any questions, email Miss Strauss
Character Connection: Acceptance

Here are some discussion points to talk about acceptance with your child:
  • What do you think acceptance is and why is it important?
  • Tell me about a time when it was hard to include someone you didn't want to play with?
  • What are some ways you can practice acceptance of yourself and others?
