Easley Weekly Update
Everything You Need to Know for the coming week.
July 25, 2022
a note from the principal
Hello Easley families! We had a fantastic first week of school! A big THANK YOU to all of you for helping to make it such a successful opening for our students and teachers. Please don't forget you can always reach to me if you have any questions or concerns. My job is make sure your child has an exceptional educational experience and sometimes there are things we don't know about. If we don't know there is a problem, we can't help fix it. You are your child's biggest advocate and when something isn't right it's important you speak up. We do ask that you approach your child's teacher first to give them the opportunity to address any concerns, however we also recognize that isn't always possible. We are in this together and it indeed takes a village so please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
Come out and meet with your child's teacher to learn about curriculum expectations, field trips, classroom routines, assessments, volunteer opportunities, and more!

This event is being held specifically for parents of students who are already identified so they can view, and sign, the Differentiated Education Plan but any parent is welcome to attend if they wish to learn more about our AIG programing.
STEAM Lab Supplies
Mr. Richwalder thanks everyone so much for the STEAM lab donations that have been pouring in this week! We now have a nice surplus of supplies for our Makers to create with!

Please hold all cardboard tube and egg carton donations until a later date.

At this time, transportation is not approving any bus passes for students to be dropped at a different stop than their assigned stop. Hopefully this will change in August once the routes are settled.
You may view your child’s bus stop information using the Here Comes the Bus App. You may also check the status at the DPS Transportation Website. You will need your child's ID number and you can get that from their teacher. If you have any concerns or questions about transportation throughout the year, Jeff Bugajski firstname.lastname@example.org will be your points of contact. Please note that if you need transportation changes, it takes up to ten days for those to take effect.
