Happy Fall!  I hope families will be able to enjoy the beautiful fall weather that is forecasted for this weekend.  If you’re looking for something to do as a family on Saturday, BHS is having their homecoming with the following athletic events taking place:

Saturday is also Bedford Olde Town Day, which offers many activities, events and vendors.  It runs from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM at the Riley Field Complex (corner of Nashua & County Road).

IN THE NEWS:
Destination Imagination - Parent Info Night
Parent Information Night for Destination Imagination in all Schools will be held on Tuesday, September 27th at the McKelvie Intermediate School cafeteria.  To learn more about the program and how to provide your child with this enrichment opportunity, please come and meet our District Coordinator, Marie Russell or email Marie at bedfordrocksdi@gmail.com.  For more information and to find out what Destination Imagination is all about, click on the link below.  ​
Ecosmith Recycle Bins for Destination Imagination
Did you know that every school in the district has an Ecosmith Recycle Bin?  This is a great way to donate/recycle old clothes, while helping raise funds for our teams who advance to Global Finals each year.  You can put any kind of fabrics in these bins, towels and stuffed animals too.  Ripped shirts and pants with holes are fine, as well as well worn shoes.  Bedford DI greatly appreciates your continued participation in this program.

Nutrition and Executive Functioning Messages
Nutrition Message
Drink water instead of soda and other sugary drinks.  Drink low-fat milk with your meals for a boost of bone building calcium and muscle building protein.
Executive Functioning Message
Today we’ll talk about the Blue Zone.  When you are in the BLUE Zone, you might be feeling sad, tired, sick, or bored.  Your body is moving slowly, and it might be hard to get your work done.  To get back in the GREEN ZONE and ready for learning, try these tools:  Stand and stretch.  Ask your teacher to take a power walk, to do a movement recharger, or for a “heavy work” break - maybe your teacher needs you to carry a pile of books to the back of the room or to the library.

Safety Educator
Please take a look at the September edition of Safety Educator.
