Drop off Time~ Please remember that students are not to be on the blacktop before 8:25 am. There is no supervision on the blacktop until this time. Breakfast is served in the gym from at 8am until 8:30am.
Weather Conditions ~ The cold weather is here and we would like to remind all parents/guardians to dress their children as warmly as possible prior to leaving for school. Even though some students have a ride to school, they do spend a considerable amount of time outdoors on the playground, especially during the noon hour.
Holiday Party/Snack Policy Reminder ~ Due to health concerns, all treats and snacks must be store bought and prepackaged with nutritional information listed. Treats and snacks must have a label that clearly states all ingredients. No homemade treats or snacks are allowed for distribution at the school. We strongly encourage you to select a treat or snack with nutritional value. (Board Policy 7:285)
Keep Skills Sharp During Winter Break
- Read for Pleasure – Whether a holiday story or his/her favorite series, winter break is a great opportunity to ditch the textbooks and read for fun! Encourage relatives to give books as a holiday gift or have a family fun reading night!
- Write Thank-You Notes - Keep up on your writing & spelling skills by writing “Thank-You” cards/letters to those you received gifts from. Show your appreciation with a hand written note from you!
- Cook Up An Easy Lesson – Invite your child into the kitchen to help you whip up a special dish! All of those half-tablespoon and quarter-cup measurements are great practice with fractions!
- Maintain Reasonable Bedtimes – With no school to get up for in the morning, it can be tempting to let kids become night owls. A few days before school, ease back into the regular bedtime schedule so your child can start the year off bright-eyed.
- Have A Family Game Night – Gather your family favorites, from board games to a deck of cards, these games will reinforce skills such as counting, reading and drawing.
