Hello A.B. Combs Families,


Thank you to those of you that were able to attend our virtual Family Engagement event this past Tuesday.  We had a great time and look forward to other opportunities to connect with our families in the future.


Interims: Interims were to be sent home on Friday.  However, due to school being canceled teachers will be sending them home on Monday.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher.


Updated Information: If your phone number or email address has changed, please be sure to let your child’s teacher know so we can update your child’s information. 


Author Visit: We are excited to welcome children’s author, Dhonielle Clayton,  to Combs on Monday, October 3rd, to present to our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students about her new book, The Marvellers.  You can support the author, Quail Ridge Books, and Combs by purchasing your very own copy for Ms. Clayton to sign on Monday. Return the order form on Monday to reserve your copy!  Information can be found on our school website.


PTA: Thank you to all the amazing families that donated items for stocking the teacher's lounge.  We are so grateful for your support.  On Friday, October 7th, your child will receive information regarding our upcoming Gator Gallop fundraiser.  This year's Gator Gallop will be on October 27th with a rain date of October 28th.


Walk to School Day:  Walk to School Day is an annual school tradition at Combs and will be held on October 12th.  Families are invited to meet at Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church at 7:45 and walk neighborhood streets to Combs, followed by a small assembly with all students at the track area.  All students walking from the church must have a parent with them.  See the Walk to School Day flyer for more information.


Family Game Night: On Wednesday, October 19th, we are hosting our first Family Game Night at Combs from 6-7:30pm.  View our digital flyer here. We hope this gives you a chance to get to know other families in our Combs community during this fun event!  Please note, families should stay with their child during this time.
