A note from the principal...

This is Music in our Schools Month, Youth Art Month,
American Red Cross Month, National Nutrition Month, and National Women’s History Month!

Our character education word for the month is
FAIRNESS!

MORNING DROP-OFF:  If you bring your child to school in the morning, please help us avoid long lines of cars and wait time by having your child ready to get out of the vehicle and pulling forward beside the sidewalk far enough so that four cars can let students out at the same time.  If your child needs assistance getting out of the vehicle, please pull forward to the end of the sidewalk so other cars can get by, or park in the parking lot and walk your child to the sidewalk.

LUNCH:  If you send lunch with your child, please maximize his/her eating time by providing containers that he can easily open.  Students have to wait for adult help to open fruit cups, go-gurts, lunchables, etc. because they can’t open these products by themselves.  Consider sending these food items in reusable plastic containers, such as Gladware.  Thank you.

Please note these important dates:
Thank our hard-working cafeteria staff for the great meals they serve during National School Breakfast Week, March 2-6.  If your child hasn’t tried one of our school’s breakfast meals, this would be a good week to start.

The first grade PTO performance will be Tuesday, March 31, at 7:00 at the High School Performing Arts Center.

Don’t be late to school on Monday, March 9!  Set your clocks ahead one hour on Saturday night, March 7, for Daylight Savings Time.

Spring photos will be taken on Tuesday, March 17.  Order forms with package prices will be sent home ahead of time.

Dollars and Donuts with Dads will be Wednesday, March 11, beginning at 7:30 a.m. in our cafeteria.  Bring $1 and enjoy a donut with your child.  All proceeds benefit the local Lay Clergy.

There will be an early dismissal at 12:35 on Friday, March 13, for staff professional development.

Third quarter ends on Wednesday, March 11.  Report cards will be sent home with students on Monday, March 16.  Parents should sign and return the envelopes.

Screenings for 2015-16 kindergarteners are March 16-24.  Contact Brenda Koval at 987-9200 to schedule an appointment.

As we begin fourth quarter, please continue reading and math practice with your child nightly.  Students need to be fluent with math facts up to 5 in kindergarten, 10 in 1st. grade, and 20 in 2nd. grade.  Students need to know grade level sight words and be able to read with sufficient “automaticity” so comprehension is increased.  Make opportunities for your child to practice writing, such as lists, thank-you notes, postcards, etc.  Writing practice makes better readers, not the other way around!

REMINDERS:
Remember that our meal policy only allows primary students to charge 3 meals.  Please check on your child’s meal account frequently in order to keep an adequate balance.

Parents, please label your child’s clothing items with first and last names, especially outerwear such as coats and jackets.  Also, check our lost and found box in the front hall periodically for any missing items.

 

Sincerely,
Sandra Haight

REMINDERS:

  • If you drop your child off in the morning or pick him/her up after school, remember that the line of vehicles is on Myrtle St. to allow for easier access to the front of the building.  Please do not try to enter the line by turning from Country Club Drive onto Eklund.  If you enter the building to get your child at the end of the day, please exit the school through the north doors by the cafeteria in order not to interfere with the parent pick-up lines.
  • REGULAR AND PROMPT ATTENDANCE IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR CHILD’S LEARNING!  Students are counted tardy if they are not in their classrooms when teachers take attendance at 8:30 a.m.  Parents must sign their children in through the office if they arrive after 8:30!  Children that arrive late are not allowed to interrupt Rooster Reading Time and will wait in the front hall until 9:05.
  • Dress your children appropriately for outside recess during these last few weeks of winter.  We promote healthy exercise outside unless weather is extremely cold or inclement.  Should your child need to stay inside due to medical reasons, please provide a note from a physician.
  • Please contact Durham Transportation Services at 540-4610 to request bus changes for your child.  All changes in bus numbers must be approved through the transportation office.
  • Students are not allowed to charge more than 3 meals.  If you owe money for meal charges, please send payment to the primary school office or to your child’s teacher.  Students that accrue more than 3 charges will be served cheese sandwiches for lunch.  If parents think they may be eligible for free or reduced-cost meals, please contact the central office at 540-3161 in order to apply.  Students are allowed to purchase extra milk or juice for $.45 each.  Students are not allowed to charge extra milk or juice.
