CELEBRATING OUR VETERANS
In an effort to support our many military families here at 
school, we will be creating our 9th Annual "RRES Wall of Honor" for Veteran’s Day. On the walls of the lobby, we place pictures of family members who are veterans and/or are currently in the military. If you are interested in participating, please send your loved one's picture, with the completed form attached. It would also be very helpful if you would write your child's name and teacher's name on the back of the picture, in case the form and picture get separated. We will then scan your picture (return the original to you) and place it on our "RRES Wall of Honor." If you have given us a picture before, just let us know by checking the box and we can reuse that one if you would like. You may also email us the required information and attach your picture to the email; please make the subject line “Wall of Honor”. Pictures are due to us no later than October 24, 2014.  For more info please contact Mrs. Kirmse at 540-286-1956 or email: kirmsean@staffordschools.net.

Halloween Safety Tips

Walk Safely
  • Walk on sidewalks or paths whenever available.
  • Walk on the left side of the street if there are no sidewalks. Face the traffic.
  • Cross the streets at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Always look left, right and left again when crossing the street and keep looking as you cross.
  • Practice safe behavior when walking near traffic. No pushing, running, or shoving.
  • Don’t let toys, phones, other electronic devices or your trick-or-treat bags distract you while walking.
  • Beware of and stop at all driveways to make sure cars aren’t driving in or out.
  • Children out at night and under the age of 12 should have adult supervision at all times. Children should not walk alone. Trick-or-treating in groups is a good idea.
  • Stick to well-lit and familiar areas.
