Ways to help raise funds for our school
Parents there are several simple things that you can do to help us raise funds. Here are a few:
1. Send all the box tops for education that you can to school by your children. We mail them twice a year and receive a fairly large check each time.
2. Send all community coffee proof of purchase to the school. We also get a large check from them when we send them in to the company.
3. Please send Coca Cola products bottle tops to school. We can redeem these for items to be used in the classroom. There is a contest going on to see which class can turn in the most tops.
Your Child’s Dismissal Routine
Please remember that our policy is that all changes in how a child goes home must be submitted in writing to the teacher before 9:00 a.m. each day. With young children, it is dangerous to switch how a child goes home from their normal schedule simply with a phone call. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Walking Line Please do not pick up children in a car from the “Walking Line”. “Walkers” are escorted across the bus line and are expected to cross the street with the crossing guard and walk home. Any student, who normally walks, that is picked up in a car on the street will be turned over to our resource officer. This is a particularly dangerous situation and should not be happening. We cannot allow cars to pull into or through the west parking lot after 2:30 p.m. as this is a bus loading and unloading zone.
Make sure that children are getting the proper amount of rest at night.
Read a book with your child each night.
Ensure that children are receiving a proper diet.
Spend time with your child doing homework and discussing the school day.
Check your child’s agenda for notes and communication from the teacher and the school.
Remember to check your child’s weekly assignment sheet to see what vocabulary words that they need to know for the Friday test. The students have signals and motions to help them learn these, please help us by practicing at home.
REMEMBER WHEN EXITING THE CARLINE, PLEASE TURN LEFT WHEN POSSIBLE.
THIS MAKES THE LINE FLOW FASTER AND SMOOTHER.
