Weekend Backpack Help!- We need your help. The Burrillville Weekend Backpack provides food for many families and right now they are running low on supplies. We are asking for every Callahan family to donate at least one can of Tuna Fish and one box or single servings of macaroni and cheese. Send them in with your child to their classroom teacher.

Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign to stay drug free. Each year we celebrate this week by teaching students to choose to live a healthy lifestyle by making good choices for themselves. I would just like to give parents enough preparation time about our upcoming Red Ribbon Week. This year it will be celebrated the week of October 26 and our themes for each day are as follows:

Monday- "From Head to Toe I'm Drug Free" (Mixed Match/Inside Out Day)

Tuesday- "Lei Off Drugs" (Wear Hawaiian/Beach Day)

Wednesday- "Too Bright For Drugs" (Wear Bright/Neon)

Thursday- "Voting For My Future To Be Drug Free" (Wear Red, White and or Blue)

Friday- "Don't Be Despicable There's A Minion Reasons To Be Drug Free" (Wear School Spirit Colors or Minion clothes)

Callahan School Pictures-Once the pictures come out we will schedule a retake day in November.

The new negative balance limits for full pay students is - $19.50 this price reflects the new increase allowing full pay students to charge up to five breakfasts and five lunches. The reduced limit remains at -$3.50. If your child’s account goes over this amount they will have an alternate lunch of that consists of two sides, milk and a sunny butter and jelly sandwich.
