40 BOOK CHALLENGE CHECK IN - NOVEMBER 8 DRAWING

How is your child doing with the 40 Book Challenge? We'll have our 1st drawing on November 8, at the end of our 1st semester. We will draw 15 tickets and present the gift certificates to students. We are excited about the great participation and about the enthusiasm students have shown for reading books!


Your child's teacher has explained the challenge and the specific format for each grade level. When a student completes 10 books, he or she is given a ticket that enters them in the raffle. We will leave all tickets in the bin until the end of the year. It's not too late to start... or to push for more independent reading!

TWO-HOUR WEATHER DELAYED STARTS

If the decision is made by D200 to delay the start of school due to weather, the following will happen:

  • Families will be notified of the delayed start (phone, email, and/or Dojo)

  • Buses will pick up students 2 hours later than the normally scheduled pickups

  • OES will start the day at 9:40am

  • We will NOT make up the day at the end of the year

  • All fine arts, lunch, and SpEd support will continue as scheduled

  • Dismissal will be at the normally scheduled time

SHARE THE WARMTH PROGRAM

TECH REMINDERS

Our 2nd - 5th grade students are taking their devices home now. Parent, please check with your children to make sure they are charging their Chromebooks each night when they drop below 30% battery life. Having a charged Chromebook helps the flow of learning & helps with fewer disruptions in class. Also, please check with your child to make sure they have working headphones here at school.


Students will be assessed for damage to their devices if the damage is due to misuse, accident, or intentional abuse. The Tech Dept will determine the costs and invoices will be sent to parents. If you wish to purchase the Chromebook Replacement Plan, please call the school office.

BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL

Breakfast is served daily in the cafeteria from 7:20am-7:40am. We encourage our students to eat all of the breakfast, however if they don’t finish it, they may take some items with them for a snack later in the day. The cost per breakfast is $2.20, and students who qualify for reduced $.30 and free-lunch is $.00. Perishable items such as milk, juice, yogurt and hot breakfasts (eggs, hash browns, pancakes, etc.) should be consumed in the cafeteria. The rest can be brought with the students to eat later (like during the classroom snack or after school at home).


A "Grab and Go" breakfast is available for students who arrive after 7:35am, and they are allowed to eat their breakfast in or near the classroom.

JOIN OUR TEAM!

There are a number of positions available at D200 schools. Hours are convenient for parents. Some positions may require a paraprofessional license or CDL. More info is available through the Human Resources Dept.
