Hello A.B. Combs families,


We had a great turnout at our Walk to School Day this week.  Thank you to those of you who were able to join us for this fun family event!


Family Game Night: On Wednesday, October 19th, we are hosting our first Family Game Night at Combs from 6-7:30pm.  We will begin this event with a PTA meeting at 6pm in the media center.  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.


Virtual Family Engagement Event: Our teachers have participated in professional learning about personality type and how that impacts teaching strategies with various learning preferences.  Please join us on October 25th at 6pm for a virtual event called Type Tuesdays: Empowering Families Through Personality Type.  Learn how to better connect for a happier home.  View the flyer here. 


Gator Gallop: Our PTA's annual Gator Gallop fun run is Thursday, October 27th (with a rain date of Friday, October 28th).
