Dress Code Reminders as the Weather Warms.
Spring is in the air! As the days get warmer, it is appropriate to revisit Catoosa County Public School Dress Code (as outlined in the student handbook). Many students hit growth spurts this time of year, so some clothing items need to be re-evaluated.
Here are some highlights:
It is the desire and intent of the Catoosa County Board of Education in adopting this dress code to create a SAFE environment in our schools that is conducive to learning and free of potential distractions or disruption to classroom or school operation. This code allows school administrators the right to make adjustments to the code as necessary to maintain a safe learning environment that is free from distraction.
Shirts should be worn to cover the midriff at all times
No inappropriate writing or pictures are allowed on any item of clothing.
Dresses/Skirt: should be worn knee-length (fingertip length)
Shorts must be at a length at mid-thigh or below.
Clinging clothing, such as yoga pants, jeggings, leggings, or are prohibited unless covered by outerwear that is at least fingertip length
We want ALL students (regardless of financial need) to be able to successfully adhere to the dress code. If your family needs help locating resources for free or affordable clothing, please reach out to Erin Swinney or Danielle Pettyjohn.
As the school year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude. Thank you for sharing your children with me! It has been my honor to serve as their school counselor for the past 7 years. Through this time, we have learned a lot, made strong connections, and had lots of fun along the way. With mixed emotions, I wanted to share with you that I will not be returning to Cloud Springs for the upcoming school year. I am moving to a district much closer to my home and to my family. It has been a joy serving your community, and I can't wait to hear about all of the wonderful things your kids continue to accomplish.
April Winning Tribe: Creativity!
Students earn Warrior Bucks and positive feedback for demonstrating the Warrior Way: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, & Be a Team.
May is National Water Safety Month.
It's May and summer is almost here. Keep your family safe with these water safety tips.
1. Always supervise children in and around the water. Designate at least one adult to watch at all times.
2. Never swim alone. Swimming is safer and more fun with a buddy!
3. Don't dive or jump into water that you can't see through. Rocks or stumps may be hiding under the surface.
4. Never turn your back to the ocean. Big surf and strong riptides can come without warning.
5. Don't depend on floating toys to keep you safe. Floats, water wings, and other inflatables are not safe substitutes for life jackets.
6. Life jackets only work if you wear them! Children and non-swimmers should wear life jackets in open water.
7. Swim only in designated swim areas. Signs are posted for your safety. There may be hidden dangers in other areas.
8. Don't leave toys or other floats in an unsupervised pool. Floating toys may attract children.
9. While "dry drowning" is rare, it can happen when your child breathes water into their lungs. Symptoms may include coughing, trouble breathing, vomiting, sleepiness, and fatigue. See a doctor quickly!
10. Learn to swim!

We would also like to use this opportunity to offer a reminder that personal items, including toys, stuffed animals, and fidgets should remain at home.

News from Parent & Family Engagement
Parent Advisory Meeting (PAC) was held on April 13, 2023. At this meeting, we went over the Spring Survey results. We also reviewed, discussed, revised, and approved the CSE Family Engagement Policy for the school year 2023- 2024. Members reviewed and approved County Policy. Our room is open from 8:00 to 2:00 every day. Why not stop by and check out our Resource Center?
Volunteer to make copies, laminate, and do other jobs to help out our teachers.
Parents, we value your input on CSE School Improvement Plan, School Policy, and Budget. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas on meetings or events for next year please contact your Parent Involvement Coordinator, Kathy Honeycutt, at 706-866-6640, or email email@example.com .
It’s hard to believe that another school year is coming to an end. We’ve had a great year here in the Parent/Volunteer workroom and I want to say “Thank You” to everyone who came in to Volunteer, whether in the workroom, in a classroom, or took work home. Remember, our work doesn’t end just because the school year comes to a close, everything you do, all the time, makes a difference. We will see you in August.
Please send written/printed excuse notes for your child’s absences. Remind messages are not acceptable forms of attendance documentation.
The following people had *PERFECT Attendance in March
(PERFECT means no tardies, no early dismissals, and no absences)

* Every dollar you spend will benefit our school directly
* You can sign up for Scholastic eWallet—a convenient digital payment account, so your child can shop the Fair cash-free. Grandparents, friends, and others can contribute to the eWallet to help build your home library. Sign up on the Book Fair website.
Fair Dates: May 8th - May 12th
Book Fair Website: Click HERE
We can’t wait to see your child at the Fair!
The last day to check out library books will be Friday, May 12th. After that, Mrs. Cole will begin to collect all books so she can begin inventory. Please help your students look for their overdue or lost library books. Check the car, the couch, the bed, the dresser, the bookshelf, their old backpack, the relatives' house, etc. If you are unable to find them, send Mrs. Cole a note and she will let you know how much it is for a replacement. Thanks so much for your help!
