OCTOBER / NOVEMBER 2017
Message from the Principal
We are already in full swing back here at school. I am pleased to report our new recognition efforts of awarding our kiddos with an 'Otter Paw' is off to a great start. The students are excited about hearing their names on the morning news and getting their reward for doing good deeds.
Our big fundraiser was again a huge success. Thank you students and parents for always doing such a bang up job with this. We sure have amazing familes! Product pick-up went well. Thank you families for being on top of it!
For the month of October we are focusing on unity. Be sure to ask your 5th graders about the kindness retreat we had on October 13th. It was a pretty cool day! Also, we are encouraging everyone to wear orange clothing on October 25th in support of stopping bullying.
And don't forget about our annual Fall Festival on October 31st. Remember, costumes should be school appropriate. If any questions on that, just give us a call.

Everyone loves a parade! That includes Twin Lakes. Ollie and a whole slew of students rode in the Elk River Homecoming Parade.
The Elks football team had a huge win over St. Francis.
Homecoming week fun!
Veterans Day Celebration is November 10th
Twin Lakes Elementary School will be honoring Veterans of the Armed Services and those currently serving our country. Our school takes time to focus on the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country with a special program in the morning.
We will start the morning off with a reception in our cafeteria. Come and enjoy refreshments while vieweing posters made by students to honor veterans and active service personnel. You can also meet our teachers, other guests and students. We will hold a flag ceremony with the Elk River Police Department Color Guard, with an assembly in the gymnasium following.
The Twin Lakes school staff, PTO and students are very excited about this event. It is a cherished tradition at our school. Please join us if you can!
Online Conference Registration will begin in November.
We will be scheduling conferences online this year. They will be held on Monday, November 20 and Tuesday, November 21. More information will be sent out soon on this!
Steps to Respect is a program directed at preventing bullying and helping create a positive, bullying-free environment for our students to feel safe and learn.
Our students were recently taught skills on building friendships, how to deal with bullying and managing conflicts.
