Halloween Traffic and Safety Tips Dunwoody

Halloween, when on a weekday, is one of the worst traffic days of the year.  With Halloween on a Friday, traffic will be a nightmare in metro Atlanta.  We suggest leaving work two hours earlier than normal.  If you live in Dunwoody and work in Cobb, head home by 3 PM at the latest.

And here is some great advice from the SDOC blog;

Finally, be prepared to meet some regional neighbors you don't see every day.  These last words I posted a couple of years ago but they've become fresh as I come off the costume parade at Coralwood last week:
With Halloween upon us, please keep in mind, a lot of little people will be visiting your home.

Be accepting. 
The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy may have poor fine motor skills. 
 The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy may have motor planning issues. 
 The child who does not say "trick-or-treat" or "thank you" may be non-verbal. 
 The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl may have an allergy. 
 The child who isn't wearing a costume at all might have a sensory issue (SPD) or autism.

Be nice. Be patient. It's EVERYONE'S Halloween.

Dunwoody Cross Country Advances to State Championships

Many of the Wildcats concluded their season on Saturday at the Region 6-AAAAA Championships at Druid Hills Middle School.  With cool temperatures for all four races and the team rested, tremendous performances were seen all day long.  In total, 44 Wildcats ran a season best time!  What a great way to end the "regular" season and push us on to the State Championships!

The Boys Varsity race started the day and the Wildcats were led by Cadmiel Velazquez, who had his best race of the season and finished 10th, and was followed right behind by Blake Tiede, who showed tremendous grit during his race.  The boys team finished 3rd behind Clarkston and Druid Hills, which qualifies them for the State Championship meet at Carrollton MS in Carrollton, GA on November 8th!

The Girls Varsity race followed, and allowed for some of our hardworking runners to get the spotlight and send their team to the State Meet.  The Wildcats successfully defended their Region title, winning the title for the third year in a row! Six Wildcats placed in the top 10 of the race, led by the group of Ally Womble, Ellie Conoley, and Shanel Stewart.  The Wildcats will look to get back on the podium in two weeks at the State Championship.
