3RD GRADE NEWS
The Third Graders would like to have an ongoing school wide pop can drive to collect money to buy books. We would then make book baggies for children at Georgetown (readers that struggle either with interest, skills or financially) to read over the summer. We would also like to donate our gently used books that we have “grown out of” to the younger grades. During this project we will be gathering data, making wish lists and in the end purchasing books so please send in your empty cans to either Miss VanArkel or Mrs. McDonald’s classroom.
5TH GRADE INFORMATION–VERY IMPORTANT NEW Immunization Requirements for 2010-2011 School Year ~ We have recently been notified by the State that beginning with the next school year, all incoming 6th graders (current 5th grade students) will have additional immunization requirements as stated below:
1. Two doses of Varicella vaccine or have a history of having chickenpox.
2. One dose of meningococcal vaccine.
3. One dose of tetanus/diphtheria/acellular pertussis (Tdap) (if 5 years or more have passed since last dose of tetanus/diphtheria vaccine – DTaP, Td or DT).
If your child needs immunizations, please make work of completing these immunizations during the 5th grade school year. Doing so will be a great help to the Middle School Secretaries who need to check for immunization compliance for every 6th grade student in our district.
Please be advised, that any child who has not had all of his or her immunizations will not be allowed to start 6th grade.
