Needmore Elementary Weekly Newsletter
Week of September 26-30
A note from the principal...
Hello Needmore Families!
Our carnival is Friday evening, Sept. 30 from 5:30-8:00. It is sure to be a good time! Hope to see you there.
Remember to order your spirit wear before Oct. 2! All of the information is below. There are many more colors, styles, and options on the ordering link so be sure to check it out! Think about doing early Christmas shopping for your child or your child's teacher. All sales will be delivered to school and sent home with students. If you have a holiday gift with your order that you want to be a surprise, call the office so we can set that item aside. We can call you to pick it up rather than send home with your kiddo.
Some upcoming events in October are the Scholastic Book Fair, Fall Break, Fall Safety Week, and Parent Teacher Conferences.
Have a great week!

News from the Cafeteria
Just a friendly reminder that we have begun to introduce alacarte healthy snacks for purchase after lunch is completed. These are extra food items the kids can have in addition to their regular lunch. Students may not purchase alacarte (extras) if their account is in the negative. Any money brought in by students goes toward a negative balance if there is one on their account in order to make the account current. Their account has to be set up to allow alacarte purchases and this has to be done by a parent or guardian.
Students must give any money for accounts (coins, check, cash) to the homeroom teacher each morning. This can be in an envelope or baggie labeled with the child's name. Students may not bring any form of money into the cafeteria. All money goes through staff hands between the teacher, office, or kitchen staff.

Spirit Wear Sale Sept. 19-Oct. 2
Be sure to take a look at all the items. There are shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hats, cinch bags, water bottles, and much more. These would make great Christmas gifts for your kids or even your child's teacher! Think of your getting some holiday shopping done early.

Important Information about cell phones and smart watches
Some students have smart watches that are worn to school. Our policy and rule regarding this style of watch is that a student may wear the watch to use it for telling time. If a student is seen using their smart watch to access apps, send text messages, or make phone calls, the student will be asked to remove their watch and turn it into the office. The child's parent will be notified to come to school to pick it up.
These rules are in place to protect students, prohibit access to non-school related material, and maximize student learning.
Carnival help needed!
The carnival is this Friday, Sept. 30 from 5:30-8:00. Students must be accompanied by an adult. Kids may not be dropped off without an adult chaperone.
