Evening Street Weekly Update
September 28th, 2022
Thank you, thank you, thank you, we filled 27 boxes of food for the Worthington Resource Pantry! That number exceeds our 18 boxes last year. If you were not able to donate, or did not get your canned goods to school, Scout Troop 333 is collecting food for the Worthington Resource Pantry through December 14th. Items may be dropped off in collection boxes in the school lobby. The need has been very great for the pantry lately, they are so appreciative of any help Evening Street may be able to offer. Our children are such good citizens, they want to give back to the community, an attribute they learned from home. Thank you!
It has been an extra busy week for the children. We had the safety drill, Eagle Family Groups and a skate party. Safety drills have become routine for the children. I remember when we first started lock down drills at school, there were tears and fearful faces. As we have transitioned to lockdown drills becoming as routine as fire and tornado drills, the children continue to demonstrate their preparedness in any event.
Children were especially excited about Eagle Family Groups. The EFG's as we call them, are small groups of multi-grade level students who have one staff leader. Our intent is to increase a sense of belonging and eagle pride with our children. Students created nature art, look for some of the creations in this week's video.
Your child's progress report will be available online tomorrow, Saturday, November 19th in Infinite Campus. Please make sure you have updated your information in Infinite Campus. Starting in fourth grade children receive letter grades. You can find out how to access the reports as well as more information about the progress reports below.
The third grade class has decided to re-boot the Zero Waste Program in the lunchroom beginning in January. For their wish to become a reality, we need the help of parent volunteers. This would be an opportunity for parents or even a grandparent, to join us during lunch time. The shifts will be 40 minutes once a month. Times are 11:10 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. and 11:50 a.m. t0 12:30 p.m.
If you are interested in volunteering, email Sarah Kalish at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know your interest. Currently, we only have two brave parents who have volunteered! To encourage more volunteerism, the parent advisory board suggested breaking the time in two 40 minute times. You can watch a video below to see how the operation works! Thanks to parent Ann Mehl for the videos and thanks to PTA for covering the cost of disposing of the compost.
Next week we only have school on Monday and Tuesday; Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are days of no school. We have kept your children very busy, they will be grateful for respite. Should you and your family be traveling over the holiday, please let your teacher or Jennifer Nicklaus, email@example.com, our attendance manager, know in order to avoid a phone call while you are on vacation.
The staff and I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! Please know, we are filled with gratitude for the partnership you share with us in educating your child!
DISMISAL CAR LINE!!!
When picking up your child in the car line, please make two lines in the side parking lot so as to not block Evening Street and to allow the buses to pull in the bus drop off. When going around the bend, cars will then merge into one line. If you need to buckle your child into the car seat, please pull up across from the high school in order to make the line move more smoothly. Please remind your child to be ready when they see your car and to listen to the adults monitoring the car line.

A Note from the Nurse - Ms. Wentworth
Thank you to all the parents who have donated clothing, underwear, and other items to the clinic. The clinic is still in need of a few pairs of boys pants size 8-12 if anyone has some gently used pants they are willing to donate. If your student(s) has borrowed clothing from the clinic, please kindly return it back to school.
As we continue into fall, we have seen an increase of Influenza across the district. Please use the following guidelines for keeping your student(s) home when they are ill. As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact me at school or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
