New Families/Kindergarten Information
Week of September 15, 2014
Reminder--Monday Morning Meet in MPR
Regular Schedule= Full Days this Week!
- Pack snack AND a lunch!
During lunch, there is no teacher supervision. Yard Duty is handled by the Parent Volunteers.
Lunch is from 12:00 - 12:40. The students in K-2 sit and eat at tables/benches for the first 20 minutes. They will also be asked to properly dispose of their waste-- compost/recycling/landfill. After 20 minutes, a whistle is blown on the main yard. The second half (12:20 - 12:40) of the lunch period is for play. Kinders stay in the kinder-zone by the small play structure.
Please highlight the idea of sitting for 20 minutes first.
Older students, grades 3-5, have the opposite schedule at the Cat Cafe with play time for the first half and eating/sitting second half.

Fundraising Without the Leg Work!
With that in mind, I'd like to remind you that there are many ways to help contribute to Washington's financial success in the goals we pursue that do not require you to "cut a check". Family Pizza Night is an example of one such event.
Please consider participating in these other opportunities that take advantage of things you already spend money on and require only minimal effort to activate cash flow to Washington. It directly benefits our kids! The so-called "Shop and Earn" opportunities.
