Helena Family Newsletter
We are drawing near the end of our second quarter and winter break will be here soon! Please make sure your students are dressing for warmth as we go outside for recess as much as possible. With recesses being before noon, the weather is still cool even on the warmer days. If your child is in need of a winter coat, we have several and would love to provide one! Gloves and hats can be kept in backpacks for an "as needed" basis.
Our November PRIDE Store was another success. This month, fourth grade students had goods for sale. We continue to THANK YOU for your donations of new and gently used items, they are truly what keeps our store running! Feel free to drop off donations any time. Students will be Christmas shopping for family members at our December PRIDE store, which will be on December 19th. Any volunteer help to set up on December 16th is welcome!
Please remember that if you plan to volunteer or go on field trips, you must complete a background check. There will be several opportunities for joining us on field trips in the Spring, so don't wait to get them completed! The background checks are good for several years. For more information on how to get a background check, please visit the Savannah website: https://www.savannahr3.com/page/volunteer-information.
