Trumbauersville Times

Dear Trumbauersville Families,


I hope this finds you at the edge of a very special Thanksgiving break. This November seemed to be an especially busy month - in and out of school - some time for everyone to be together with families and friends is welcome and important. As we head into this break, I would like to provide a few updates related to our school.


First, thank you for your partnership and support of our school during November. We had three successful conference nights. Our Girls on the Run team completed a great season and culminated it all with a 5 K race in New-Hope, PA. Thanks to our school staff of Mrs. Fox, Mrs. Mullen, Ms.Ody, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Foster, our parent coach. for their support and coaching for Girls on the Run. Also, our student CPR Committee led us in a fruitful can food drive that collected over 811.5 pounds of food. This food went right back to our local community via the Quakertown Food Pantry. Our measure of success in all of these events is the leadership experiences and interpersonal connections that we create and foster within our school community.


Next month, we will be talking more about ALICE. We will be meeting as grade level groups to review the key aspects of ALICE. As a reminder, the key ideas of ALICE is for students to have an active response to a crisis situation rather than a passive response. There are ALICE resources available for your reference on our school website. I am sharing this information with you so that you can also discuss the ideas of ALICE with your children should you feel that is important to do.


Lastly, the end of November also brings the end of the first trimester. Families received a general progress report prior to conferences and now the full progress reports (report cards) for the first trimester will go home on December 6th. Please make some time on that night to review your child’s progress reports and to celebrate all that they have accomplished over the start of this school year.


Again, thank you for all you continue to do to support our students and our school. We are wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving break!



Sincerely,


Adam Schmucker

Reminder of how the car line works.

As the weather turns colder, and as there have been some canceled school bus routes, there is an increase in car rider pick-ups. Here are some friendly reminders about how to help keep our car line for student drop off and pick up running efficiently.


During Morning Drop Off

If your child needs help getting out of the car, getting unbuckled, or getting their backpack and other items from the car, please park in a parking space. Then, you can walk your child to the front of the school where they will enter the building. This will keep the car line moving and will allow our families to exit the school parking lot safely and quickly.


If you do not need to park, please have your child exit your vehicle on the passenger’s side of the car. We have cars that drive in the parking lot during morning arrival. Having a child exit the car on the driver’s side is a safety concern.



During Afternoon Dismissal

If your child needs help getting into the car, getting buckled, or getting their backpack and other items into the car, please park in a parking space. You can walk to the doors outside the cafe and pick up your child there. This will keep the car line moving and will allow our families to exit the school parking lot safely and quickly. As a little tip, we dismiss the students whose families have walked up to the door first. If you are looking to get through the dismissal time quickly, park and walk up.


If you pull into the car rider line, have your child get into your vehicle on the passenger’s side of the car. We have cars that drive in the parking lot during dismissal. Having a child walk into the parking lot and enter the car on the driver’s side is a safety concern.


Please refrain from having your child re-enter the building after dismissal. Children re-entering the school after dismissal can lead to confusion. Any items your child accidentally leaves at school can easily be retrieved the next school day. If it is essential that your child re-enter school, they must do so via the main entrance and must check-in at the office first.


Thank you for keeping our arrival and dismissal procedures running safely and smoothly.


Head Homeroom Parent Help Needed

Please see the graphic below for the homerooms that need still need a homeroom parent. All homerooms have volunteers as helpers but we do need a parent from each class to volunteer to coordinate the classroom parties. Reach out to TPO if you are interested in volunteering. Volunteers will need their clearances.
