Ever wonder how November got its name? Are you wondering now? Well, November was the 9th month of the Roman calendar. Its name comes from the Latin word novem, which means, 9 (Latin was the language of ancient Rome). We get A LOT of our words from Latin; and not just in English! It's just one of the many contributions of those clever Romans.
Here's your November Newsletter (courtesy of Ms. Neary) and here are a few important dates that are coming up:
November 10 - Outdoor Lab Field Trip (Guyton/Mowery/Neary/Bruch)
November 11 - No School, Veteran's Day
November 12 - Outdoor Lab Field Trip (Landay/Perry/Hunter/Bowers)
November 19 - Report Cards go home!
