Love Art Work?

If you do love art AND YOU would be willing to volunteer some time, then we have a project for YOU!

Mrs. Brouwer, our wonderfully talented art teacher, has loads of student art work that needs to be hung throughout the school!  If you would be willing to help her with this project, please send her an email.  Mrs. Brouwer will appreciate any help you can provide.

If you have not visited the Art Blog yet, this needs to be your next surfing stop!

Parking Request: DO NOT USE BUS LOOP

If you drive your child to school, please DO NOT drop your child off in the bus loop area.  For safety reasons, we do not allow parents to park in this area, even for a short amount of time.  

Our bus drivers asked that I remind all parents of this policy due to the increased tendency to use this area for student drop off in the morning.  The bus loop is ONLY for busses.  

Thank you for your help with this matter.  Mrs. Reagan

January is ripe for…

viruses!  If your family was healthy over the holidays, CONGRATULATIONS!  If not, I am so very sorry.  I do know how horrible it can be to have sick children around the holiday season.

Please be aware that we have many different types of viruses afflicting children at school.  These range from stomach viruses (one lasting up to three weeks…ugh), to impetigo, step throat, respiratory illnesses, and nasty cases of true blue flu.  

Each time we have a sick child in the office area and health room, Mrs. Ripley and Mrs. Nurenberg sanitize the phones, chairs, and counter area.  We do this to ensure that these viruses do not spread from student to student and to the staff. 

If your child does come down with an illness, please keep him/her home for 24 hours following the end of a fever or last signs of viral symptoms.  This will help us to eliminate the spread of some of these viruses.

Thank you for your help!  Mrs. Reagan

2009: Off and Running…

…or is that slipping and sliding?!  With this crazy weather we are having (melt, freeze, rain, slush, snow, freeze) we never know what our playground is going to look like!  Currently, we are dealing with icy patches in many different locations.  And, isn’t it curious how our children are attracted to the ice like metal to magnets?!

Please know that we are doing our very best to make the playground safe by not allowing children to play in certain areas due to the ice.  It is not possible to salt or sand all of these patches (our playground is very large–and with the wind, the salt/sand treatment often does not work.  We are hoping for an inch or two of snow to coat the ice and make it safer for everyone.

Happy New Year!

I hope you have all had a WONDERFUL and just right start to the new year.  Just like many of you, I spent the weekend putting away Christmas decorations and picking up the house.  Truly, it is hard for me to believe that another holiday season has passed by–and we are headed into 2009!  

We have five months remaining of the school year, and many events & activities ahead.  I have updated our school google calendar (on the right side of this page), so that our school and PTC events are posted.  

We will work to send out efficient updates on the blog and be careful not to bombard you with several emails about the same events.  Please be patient with us as we work to move to our reduced paper method of communication.

Here’s to a great start to the New Year!  Mrs. Reagan
