October is bullying prevention month and we have some empowering and fun ways to celebrate here at Cub Run! We want to empower ALL students to prevent social aggression, so our theme is “BULLY-FREE STARTS WITH ME!” We want to emphasize that anyone can be a hero by showing courage, helping others, and doing the right thing.
We will have a coloring contest for grades PK-2 and a poster contest for grades 3-5 the same way we did last year. The contests were introduced in guidance classes this week and entries will be due on October 29th.
We will finish up the month with four dress-up days:
Tuesday, October 28: Sports Day
Wednesday, October 29: Pajama Day
Thursday, October 30: Cub Run Spirit Day
Friday, October 31: Hero Day
For Hero Day, students can dress up as a real person or fictional character who is courageous, helps others, and stands up for what is right. We encourage students to be creative in selecting a hero!
On August 21, our student body was completed with the addition of our littlest cubs. The pre-kindergarten students’ day was full of firsts as they learned the Cub Run way – from bus rides to cafeteria meals to the playground, rug time, bathroom breaks, and rest.
The Rockingham Educational Foundation, Inc. (REFI) is an organization that supports learning by securing financial contributions and educational resources that benefit RCPS students and teachers.
Mr. Boyers ended the first day of school by challenging Cub Run faculty and staff to his “REFI Lemonade Challenge.”
On Tuesday, August 19, we welcomed 593 new and returning students in kindergarten through fifth grade to Cub Run. Check out a slideshow of some of the day’s many memorable moments below.
