The Weekly Jr. Oiler

September 15, 2017

Jr. Oiler Updates

Our first full week of school was fantastic! Students were smiling and having a great time learning and getting to know their teachers and peers. Next week we will have our first dance for 6th graders only. Tickets will be sold at lunch on Monday and Tuesday. We will also have our assembly for the Step It Up fundraiser. Be on the lookout for packets coming home Tuesday.

Be Jr. Oiler proud - Dwyer spirit gear is now on sale for the whole family. Please visit here to purchase your orange and black! Spirit Gear will be on sale until the end of the month.

We are looking for parent volunteers for a few committees this year. School Site Council meets to review school goals, budgeting to meet those goals, school safety plans, and more. We are looking for two parents to fill this committee. We are also looking for a parent of an English Learner to represent Dwyer at the District English Learner Advisory Committee/District Advisory Council. This group advises the School Board on school programs, as well as programs and services for English Learners and non-proficient students. Each group meets 3-4 times throughout the year. If you are interested in either committee, please respond to this SchoolLoop email by Friday, September 22.

PTSA Membership Drive

Please think about joining our fabulous PTSA. Each member is $10 and this membership helps fund so many school programs and fun events for your children. Students are encouraged to become members too. The grade level with the most memberships will have a movie day in the auditorium. If we get to 75% membership, students will also be allowed to use their cell phones on campus that day (not during instruction unless permitted by teacher).

Join through our website or click for Membership and Directory! We had our first PTSA meeting this morning and we had a great turn-out!
