Mrs. Overfield and Mrs. Hickoff, Secretaries
From the Desk of Mr. Tiemann
Wow! It’s hard to believe that this will be our last State Road Newsletter for 2014… Each year I am amazed at how fast the school year goes by, and this year is no exception! I guess the old saying is true… “Time Flies When You’re Having Fun!” I would like to wish all of our State Road students, families, and staff a restful, relaxing, and wonderful Holiday Break and I hope you all get to enjoy some special times with your family!
We are very excited for our Holiday Choir Concerts this Friday. Mrs. Hatlen is working very hard with each class preparing them for the concert, and our students are very excited to have the opportunity to sing with other classes and grades. Due to the size and space of our cafeteria and parking lot, we divide our concerts into three separate performances of two grade levels each. Mrs. Hatlen also divides up the holiday songs based on the difficulty level. Please note that if you are planning to attend our concert, seating space and parking will be at a premium and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Please Help Prevent the Spread of Sickness, Head Lice, etc...
Parents: We have had no reported cases of Strep Throat and Head Lice in the past few weeks. The best way to prevent the spread of sickness, communicable diseases, or issues such as head lice is to take preventative steps at home prior to sending your child to school. Please also contact the office right away to let us know of any sickness or confirmed case of lice that your child may have. For more ‘health’ related information, please visit the State Road website and select “Student Health Info” under the Information Tab. Thank you!
