Hello A.B. Combs families,


We enjoyed an incredible Gator Gallop event on Thursday.  It was so endearing to see so many Combs families join us for this memorable event, and the sheer joy of our students having so much fun.  While donations are still coming in, our amazing PTA has raised over $50,000!  We are truly grateful to our wonderful volunteers and Combs families for their support of our school community!


Teacher Workday: Friday, November 4th is a Teacher Workday.  There will be no school for students on this day.


Virtual Family Engagement Event for Spanish Speaking Families: On Wednesday, November 2nd from 6:00-7:00 PM, we will be offering a parent workshop titled:  Today's Math: "I Didn't Learn Math Like That!". This session is being offered for Kindergarten- Fifth Grade and will focus on exploring the Math standards and you will be receiving strategies to help your children at home.   The link is here and also in the attached flyers.  We hope that you can attend!


Yearbook Contest: We are looking for our wonderful leaders in art!  The deadline for students to submit drawings for the cover of the 2022-23 yearbook is November 3rd.  More information about the Yearbook Cover Contest can be found here.


Picture Makeup and Retakes:  If you would like to have your child’s picture retaken or if they need their picture taken because of an absence that day, retakes will be done on Wednesday, November 2nd.  These pictures are the school pictures that we will use for our A.B. Combs yearbook.  Ordering information can be found on our school website.


Week of November 7th-11th:  Please know that there are a few days on the calendar to remember the week of November 7th through November 11th. Tuesday, November 8th, is Election Day and is a Workday for staff, so no school for students. Thursday, November 10th, is an Early Release Day and school will be dismissed at 1pm. Then, Friday, November 11th is the Veteran’s Day Holiday, and there is no school for students or staff.


School Musical: Any 4th or 5th graders interested in participating in a school musical?  Join Ms. Hobbs for an interest meeting on Monday, November 7th at 7:45 in the music room.  More information can be found here.


Magnet Tours: Do you know families that would like to tour our school for the 2023-24 school year?  Our magnet tours are underway and interested families can sign up on our school website.
