A Few Notes....

-Please remember to have your child dress for the weather. If there is snow on the ground, please send in boots, snow pants, a warm jacket, a hat, and insulated gloves. The students play outside twice a day.

-Please LABEL all winter clothing. Our lost and found gets overwhelmed with items and when we see a name on the label, we can return the items to their rightful owners!

-Please help us by not allowing any toys, Pokémon Cards or electronics to come to school at anytime. Items get lost or become an issue here at school. We appreciate your support.

-If your child is absent from school, please send in an excuse note with them the next day they return.

-If you will be picking up your child during the day, please let the office or your child's teacher know in advance.

-If you will be picking up your child at 3:25 p.m. please also let the office or your child's teacher now in advance. If you let us know in advance, we will have your child at Door 14 waiting for you at dismissal.

This month has been busy with after school programs, outstanding new curriculum, and engaging activities that are focused on STEM, math, ELA, and more! We thank all of our volunteers, Parent's Club, and staff for a wonderful month. Thank you, our Petrova families, for sharing your children with us. Your support makes Petrova the wonderful place that it is!

Thank you!

After School Programs

We would like to thank all of our students for participating in the first round of after school programs this past month. We would also like to thank the staff who helped to facilitate the programs. We had Fit Club, Cooking Club, Legos, Monster Drawing, Science Club, Art Club, Chess Club, Origami and Airplanes and the start of Odyssey of the Mind. Be on the look out for more after school opportunities!

Petrova Parent's Club

The Petrova Parent's Club is busy planning for some activities that are up and coming! We thank everyone for your support on our annual wreath night. It's such a fun event and a great fundraiser. All proceeds for our events go towards activities and events for Petrova.

We are also planning for the annual holiday movie, book bingo night, family chess night, winter carnival (February 1st) and marching in the winter carnival parade.

On December 6th we will be sponsoring the 2nd Coffee Cart for staff. We thank our 5th grade parents and Hyde Mobil for the donation of coffee during November's Coffee Cart. We are asking 4th grade parents to sign up to donate an item on December 6th at the following link:

Thank you!!
