Students will meet their teachers for next year. Call Brenda Koval with Parents as Teachers at 987-9200 if you aren’t registered!
Parents, keep in mind that regular school attendance is important for instructional and social purposes through the end of the school year. Research shows that children who are in school most of the time do better on standardized tests, and that attendance is the single most important factor in school success (see www.parent-institute.com). Children can make up assignments, but they can never relive the most important parts of classroom learning: discussions, questions, explanations, and active problem-solving.
As the weather gets warmer, please dress your child appropriately for outside play. Flip flops and high heels are discouraged. Children in flip-flops are not allowed on playground equipment. As always, athletic shoes are required for participation in PE classes. Please review the following dress code guidelines from the student handbook:
Our last day of school will be THURSDAY, MAY 18. We will dismiss three hours early. Sack lunches will be served on the last day. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CHARGE MEALS IN OUR CAFETERIA AFTER MAY 5! Please make sure your child has enough funds in his/her account for breakfasts and/or lunches through May 18.
1st. and 2nd grade class lists will posted online on the district website on Thursday, May 18. Students will participate in “Swap Day” that morning to meet their new teachers and classmates.
Our LOST AND FOUND box is full! Please come look for any jackets, coats, mittens, etc. that your child may have left at school.
Families, thank you for all your support this school year, especially with our fundraising and community service events.
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY SUMMER,
Mrs. Sherry Helus named Primary School Principal for the 2017-2018 School Year
