STORY TIME IN FOREMAN'S CLASS

Story time with the Q Wake-up Crew! Ms. Foreman entered a contest sponsored by Qmix and won! She now has an e-reader for her students. The wake-up crew visited her class today to deliver the e-reader and to read a story - "The Day the Crayons Quit."

FROM THE NURSE'S DESK

Dear Parents,
It looks like we are finally starting to see winter temperatures. With that being said, our students still go outside for recess every day when the temperature and wind chill are above 20 degrees. Please make sure that your child comes to school with appropriate winter apparel every day. If they do not wear their winter coats to school, they will not be permitted to go outside for recess. If your child does not have a winter coat, please contact me at 812-342-2483.


Thank you for all of your help trying to keep our students healthy!

MESSAGE FROM PTO: Winter Carnival

As you may have heard, there will not be a Winter Carnival this year due to the inability to find a new planning committee. This was not an easy decision to make, and one that has been discussed for several years at our meetings as our number of volunteers keeps getting smaller. As all of our lives get busier, it is becoming harder and harder to find the many people needed to successfully execute this event. We are hopeful that it will return next year better than ever, but we must start now to insure that this happens. We need a planning committee in place. The group of people that have planned and coordinated the event in the past are able to help, but can't lead due to changes in careers and life events. Planning committee members must be willing and able to attend meetings. There aren’t a lot of meetings to attend, but with an event this size, it is vital that collaboration and planning take place at each meeting we do have. Planning really does begin almost a year in advance, so we are looking for leadership now! If you are interested in helping coordinate this great event for 2017, please attend our next meeting and we will be happy to show you how! If you cannot take a leadership position, there are plenty of other ways to help. From phone calls during the planning stages to working a 30 minute shift the night of the event, there is something everyone can do!
