November 2017

Principal's Message

Parents/Guardians thank you so much for attending our Spirit Night at Sweeto Burrito and the Harvest Fall Festival this past month. Both events were fun and a huge success! Thanks to our wonderful PTO and parents who volunteered their time, sent in products for the raffle baskets or just picked up dinner. We truly appreciate your support!


CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR STUDENTS WHO SIGNED THE BOOK OF HEROES THIS MONTH- NAMES ARE ATTACHED

THESE STUDENTS EACH EARNED 30 HERO TICKETS FROM VARIOUS STAFF MEMBERS THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING. WAY TO GO!


Just a few helpful reminders to make this year great:

· If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child’s teacher first

· Remember, if your child tells you something call the teacher to find out what the facts are, don’t jump to conclusions too fast. It takes all of us to ensure that students are HEROS at Kyle R. Wilson, so please keep communication lines open.


We continue to add to our wonderful KWES family: PALs Tutors- Martina Honea and Meghan Ray, Temporary LD Teacher Asst. – Kelly Curry, 2nd grade teacher- Joy Evans and Kindergarten TA for Ms. Mason- Melissa Hildebrand.


Lost & Found

We have lots of coats and accessories in our school’s lost and found lockers in the front lobby. Please ask your children to check the lost and found if they are missing any coats and/or items. We want to ensure that missing coats are getting back to their rightful owners, especially with the cooler days ahead.


Transportation

Parents please do not drop your child off after 9:00am in the morning without coming in to sign them in. We will be contacting parents to remind you to sign them in, if this occurs. Thank you.

· Car riders- please make sure that you do not pass cars in the car rider line. This can be dangerous for students and parents who are loading and unloading students. Please

adhere to the pedestrians crossing in the cross walk.

· Parents or someone listed on the emergency cards of Kindergartners must be at the bus stop each day to pick up their students. We are having many Kinders come back each day because no one is at the bus stop.


Please feel free to download the My Bus app so that you can know where your child’s bus is at all times. You can find this app on our webpage. website. Of course, you can also contact transportation with your concerns at 571-402-3912.

Family trips should be scheduled during school holidays and over summer break.

If your child has over 5 days of unexcused absences, a referral will be sent to the Attendance officer for compliance with the compulsory education laws.


HAPPY FALL!!
