Good Last Friday afternoon of February!!


CONFERENCES….. Parents  don’t forget that we have parent/teacher conferences next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.  You should have received a notice from your student’s  teacher as to your date and time.  If you have any questions in regards to your time or date please contact your child’s teacher.

PARENT DROP-OFF…. when dropping your children off in the morning before school in the circle drive they need to be instructed to walk around the building to their individual playground.  We are having too many students entering the building through the front doors and then are not going outside to  their playground.  We just cannot have students lingering in the building before school.  We do have supervision outside for the students and they let the students in when it is time.  If you are dropping off after the 1st bell (8:40am) has sounded then the children may enter through the front of the building.  (Just a reminder if it is raining or the wind chill is below zero we do allow the students to enter the building.)

CLASSROOM BASKET RAFFLE…. this will be taking place again this year during conferences next week.  These will be out for display and you may purchase tickets for $1/ticket.  Tickets will be available for student’s to purchase also during their lunch time.  The winners of the baskets will be announced the following week and the proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated back to your child’s classroom.

MOTHER/DAUGHTER POTTERY…..  this will be available to pick up during conferences next week.  The PTC will have it set up on tables for you to just swing in and pick up.  Thanks for being patient!

SPRING BOOK FAIR….  Our spring book fair will take place from March 15-19.  This will be held this time in our Sensory Motor Room. Family Shopping Night will be held on Tuesday, March 16.  Please feel free to visit our Scholastic Home Page for book reviews, etc. at
