Roaring News

Hello Baldwin Community:

What a Wonderful Fall Carnival and Silent Auction we had this past Friday! It was an amazing event. We had so many different activities and events for our children to enjoy themselves. All of the food choices were also great and we had so many sweets to choose from all night long. I want to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to the PTA and the Carnival Committee. Everything was so well organized and child friendly. Thank you to all of our sponsors and to the parents and friends that gave their time to work at a booth(s). I heard many folks saying that night that this was the BEST carnival they have ever attended.  I also want to thank the Auction Committee for all of the auction baskets and the organization of this part of our carnival. Lastly, I want to thank all of the parents that stayed past 8:30 to clean up. When we returned Monday morning, our school looked good as new. Thank you again to everyone for helping with this event and for attending our first carnival. I can't wait for next year's carnival.

Just a friendly reminder that this is Red Ribbon Week and everyday we will be showing  that we are Drug Free at Baldwin! These are the activities for the week: Monday-Red Ribbon Day; Tuesday-wear your sunglasses to show that we are too "bright" to do drugs; Wednesday-"Crazy Sock" Day; Thursday-Wear a Red Shirt and Friday is "Crazy Hat" day. Thanks for participating in these activities.

Today, the Oak Hill Rotary Club presented our third, fourth and fifth graders with dictionaries, atlases and thesauruses. They also presented the Baldwin Library with many books they bought during our summer Barnes and Noble Book Fair. Mr. Baldwin was a member of the Oak Hill Rotary Club and I know he would be so proud of the relationship we are building with the Rotary Club. Thank you to the Oak Hill Rotary Club for the beautiful donations.  

One last reminder: Fall Individual Pictures will be taken this Thursday, October 28th.  

Roaring with Pride,
Dr. Rosa M. Peña
