THINGS TO KNOW:
*JACKETS - We have accumulated quite a few "lost" jackets. These will be donated at the end of January if they have not been claimed. Please ask your children to look through them as they enter the gym and ensure that they claim anything that belongs to them. Also, please make sure your child's name (even if it's the last name only) is written on the tag inside their jacket. This will help us return lost jackets to their owner.
*REPORT CARDS - Report cards will be sent home in Tuesday folders next Tuesday. Please watch for them to come home. If you have any questions about your child's grades, please make sure and contact their teacher.
*FRONT OFFICE CHECK IN - Each semester we "purge" the check in system in the front office. It is important that you bring your identification with you every time you enter the building. Since we purged, no one is in the system.
*PTO MEETING - PTO will be held on Thursday, January 10 @ 9:30 in the lounge.
*PTO SPIRIT NIGHT - Will be held at Chuck E Cheese on January 24 from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m.
*CHANGE OF TRANSPORTATION/PICK UP EARLY - If you have a need to change your child's transportation, the best option is to send a note to the teacher the day of the change. If it is an emergency and you need to change during the day, the cut off for that change to be effective is 2:30 p.m. If you need to pick up your child early, you will need to be in the front office no later than 2:45 p.m.
*YEARBOOK ORDERS - Yearbooks are now currently selling for $26 each. They can be purchased at the link below.
CAR RIDER LINE - REMINDER OF THE PROCESS
AFTERNOON NOTES - Remember that you must enter the car rider line from Oak Ridge School Road instead of our driveway.
REMINDER - Don't forget when you are in the car rider line, it is against the law to be on your cell phone. (Not to mention that it is dangerous to our staff and students who are on duty.)
ZONING FOR 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR INFORMATION
An Attendance Boundary Committee (ABC) was formed this year for the purpose of creating the attendance zone for Suchma Elementary, a K-6 campus that will open in August, 2019 in the Harpers Preserve neighborhood. After several meetings of reviewing community feedback and input and evaluating dozens of possible scenarios, the ABC has released the scenario that it intends to recommend to the Board in January at
When the decision is finalized, we will communicate further.
Spirit Night is Thursday, January 24 at Chuck E Cheese from 5-9 p.m. Please come out and join the fun while supporting PTO.
Free/reduced applications can be located at the link below. Mrs. Vera, our registrar, can assist you in completing this form should you need assistance.
DATES TO KNOW:
8 - Students return to school
10 - PTO Meeting @ 9:30 a.m.
21 - School holiday - MLK Day
24 - PTO Spirit Night at Chuck E Cheese
Official attendance time is 9:00 a.m. If your child arrives after 9, he/she will be counted absent for the day. Tardy time this school year is 8:01 a.m. If your child arrives after 8:01, the parent needs to walk the child into the front office and sign the child into school.
It is just as important for students to remain at school all day as it is for them to be on time. The 20 minutes missed frequently at the end of the day do add up and cause students to miss important information for their learning. Please allow your child to stay at school all day unless there is an emergency.
Thank you for help with these matters!
