CHARACTER EDUCATION WORD
FOR THE MONTH:
Please continue to dress your child appropriately for our changing weather. In order to benefit from exercise and fresh air, we will continue to have outside recesses unless there is precipitation or temperatures fall to 15 degrees. Once we transition from air conditioning to the heating system in our building, we can’t access ac, so consider dressing your child in layers if the weather is fairly warm.
Remember, school starts at 8:30 and dismisses at 3:35. Students arriving after 8:30 a.m. or leaving before 3:35 p.m. are counted absent for part of the day, regardless of the reasons. Students that arrive after 8:40 will wait by the office until Rooster Reading time ends at 9:00 in order to protect that instructional time.
Please note that the Primary School playgrounds are closed to the public Monday-Friday between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. due to childcare and students’ use. This also means that visitors to the school are restricted from visiting playgrounds unless under the specific invitation and supervision of a staff member.
THANK YOU for attending parent/teacher conferences the week of Oct. 24. Please take time to complete the online survey that will be emailed by the district after conferences.
Fall Harvest Competition, sponsored by the Pleasant Hill Bank, will be from Nov. 7-11. All schools in the district will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items for our Local Food Pantry. The school with the most food items donated will win a $500 prize donation from the bank to the local charity/organization of choice. Let’s help our community in need this season.
Please keep collecting Box Tops for Education! General Mills Box Tops are found on lots of products and are easy to cut out. Send in with your child, or drop off at the PS office. Our most recent purchases with Box Tops have been the DrumFit program for PE, Lego playsets for Character Education in Guidance classes, and additional iPads for checkout from our library. Every little Box Top helps!
Our art department collects Campbells Labels, which are found on more than just soup cans! These labels are redeemed for special art supplies. Please drop in our soup “can” in the front hall, or bring to the PS office. Thank you for your Art to Remember orders!
In addition, our Parents as Teachers program is collecting ink cartridges for recycling.
