·       Principal Notes – This school year has gotten off to a fantastic start!  We are so fortunate to have such an outstanding group of teachers working with our super students.  We are excited about the 2019-20 school year!  Please, don’t hesitate to call or visit the school if you have any questions or concerns. (462-4445)

·       Textbook Fees Textbook rental fees are now due!  The fee for kindergarten is $125.98, grade 1 - $139.27, grade 2 - $125.38, grade 3 - $130.47, grade 4 - $101.74 and gr. 5 - $119.87.  You may stop in the school office and pay Mrs. Myers, or send the money to school with your child.  Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!

·       ATTENDANCEGOOD ATTENDANCE is VITAL for the students to achieve their full potential.  Students need to be at school each and every day.  Skills are taught every day and when your child misses a day at school that puts him/her behind immediately.  Attendance is going to be monitored very closely this year.  Please remember to call the school by 9:00 AM if it is necessary for your child to miss school.  We will be calling you if we do not hear from you.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter!!

·       REMINDER!!  TOO MANY TARDIES!! – School takes up at 8:15 AM sharp!  If you bring your child to school, please make sure they are on time.  Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!

·       Free/Reduced Lunch Applications Applications for free and reduced meals are due by Friday, September 13th.  Only one application is needed per family with each child’s name listed on the application.  Even if you are not sure if you qualify for this service, please fill it out and return to school.  Parents will be responsible for textbook fees for each child who does not have an approved application filed.  Thank you!

·       No Glass Containers! – If your child brings their lunch to school, please make sure all items are packed in unbreakable containers.  Thank you for your attention to this matter!

·       Drop Off – Just a reminder to those dropping off their children in the mornings.  Please, DO NOT pass other cars as the students are being dropped off.  This is a serious safety issue.  Thank you for your support in this matter.

·       Bus Passes – If your child needs to ride a different bus home from the one they usually ride or they are being picked up instead of going home on the bus, they must come to school with a note from home.  We are getting many phone calls late in the afternoon, which makes it difficult to get these messages to the children.  Thank you!

·       Visitors – If you need to come to the school, you must check in at the main office.  If you need to pick up your child, you are not to go to the classrooms – we will call your child to the office.  This is for the protection of your children.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

·       Mayor Bennett’s Character Award Program Once a month, the teachers will select one student in their class who exhibits the character trait of the month.  The class nomination will be given to the Character Award Committee and one winner will be selected per school.  Mayor Bennett will honor each winner from each school at the City Council Meeting held on the second Thursday of each month.  In May, the winners will be honored at a celebration.

·       Just a reminder, if you have not joined our wonderful PTO yet, you still have time!!  The cost is $5.00 for a family membership!!  They truly appreciate your support!!  Thank you!!  J
