Welcome to October! We must be having a ton of fun at W. T. Moore because the days
are just flying by. We are all so impressed with the respect and responsibility that your
children demonstrate every day. Thank you for reinforcing these with your children. In
addition to this monthly “note” your child’s teacher sends home weekly newsletters or
posts information on their website. Please be sure to look for these so you can stay up-
to-date on activities and events planned for your child.

PTM Fundraiser:
Thanks to all of you who supported our fundraiser. You may still order directly from the
company through their website. For access, please go to our school website at and click on Great American Online. For every order placed,
we receive a percentage to purchase technology for our classrooms.

Good Search:
For those of you who use Google or any other search engine, please consider using Good
Search next time you are online. We receive $$ every time you use Good Search. For
more information, go to our website and click on Good Search.

School Picture Day:
Student pictures will be taken on Thursday, October 2nd. Information has already been
sent home with your child if you are interested in ordering pictures. These pictures are
also used in our school yearbook so be sure that your child comes with a great smile!

40th Anniversary Celebration:
Calling all former and current Mustangs! On Thursday, October 9th please join us in the
cafeteria at 6:30 as we celebrate and welcome back former teachers, staff and students.
The Superintendent will be here to recognize 40 years of excellence. Light refreshments
will be served and tours of the school will be conducted.

Volunteers and Mentors:
If you have some time to come into school or if you are willing to work on some things at
home, please contact your child’s teacher. Volunteer applications are also available in
the front office. Sharon Dewit, our mentor coordinator, has scheduled a mentor training
for October 15th at noon. Contact her at if you are interested.
Research shows that the number one predictor of student success is the involvement of
parents in their child’s education. Come join us!

Birthday Pencils:
When your children have a birthday, encourage them to come by my office for a birthday
pencil. I have a great selection and they get to choose. This is also a perfect opportunity
for me to get to know your children and congratulate them on being another year older!

School Traffic:
Just a friendly reminder to please observe the procedures we have in place for student
drop-off and pick-up. Our priority is your child’s safety at all times. Please remember
that the bus ramp area is for busses only. Students should not be dropped off, picked up,
or walked through that area during school arrival and dismissal times. Thank you in
advance for your cooperation.

Mustang Spirit Fridays:
Students, parents and staff are encouraged to show their Mustang spirit on Fridays.
Wear your W. T. Moore t-shirt or wear green and yellow, our school colors. Mustang
shirts are available from Mrs. Hudson in the main office if you are interested. The last
Friday of each month is designated as a special school spirit day. October 24th will be
stripes and polka dots day.

School Spirit Night:
W. T. Moore is known for its family atmosphere and we would love for you to join us
Thursday night October 30th from 5:30-8:00 pm at the Capital Circle Chick Fil A. Those
of you who attended last year know what a great time we all had. This is a wonderful
opportunity to meet your child’s friends and teachers in a relaxed setting. Plus a
percentage of the proceeds go to Moore! Just tell them you are a Mustang when you
order. See you there!
