4th Grade Move-Up Ceremony
What should my child wear for the ceremony?
We ask for all 4th grade students to be neatly dressed for Move-Up Day. Please do not feel you need to purchase special clothing for this event. Boys are encouraged to wear a shirt with a collar, pants like khakis or dress pants, and dress shoes. Dress shorts for boys and girls are also appropriate. Necklines and hem lines should be conservative. Students will be seated in chairs on the stage. Please keep this in mind when choosing attire. Line of sight from the floor may present uncomfortable situations. Flip flops or similar casual footwear are not appropriate for this event. Students will be walking up steps and across the stage during the ceremony. If you have questions about an outfit, please feel free to call or email Mr. Kern.
Earth Day in K
Mrs. Schaeffer’s Kindergarten class is collaboratively working on a Project Based Learning Unit on Earth Day. The class is learning all about the 3 R’s (Reuse, Reduce, Recycle), Natural Resources, how we harm/help our planet. This unit will culminate with a “Sharing Project” in June that will represent how the 3 R’s help our community. Every day is Earth day! We can make a difference!
Warm Weather Attire
- T-shirt-style shirts are the simplest choice. They cover all that needs to be covered.
- Please avoid shirts that expose the torso due to a mid-waist length, or large arm holes allowing the torso and/or undergarments to be seen.
- Sandal-style shoes are to have a firm sole and heel strap. No flip-flop styles.
- Sneakers are best. They protect the foot and allow for easy running and play.
- Water bottles for recess are permitted.
- Hats for recess are also permitted.
- Please apply sun-screen at home.

Be Allergy Aware!
Due to varied allergy and dietary needs, please contact your child's teacher before sending in food or other items intended to be distributed to students in a classroom (e.g. birthday celebrations, class parties). Students should not share food at any time during school - even with a close friend. A seemingly harmless food item may unexpectedly contain allergens, or interact with other medical conditions. Depending on the health needs within a classroom, teachers may choose to avoid food-oriented experiences altogether. Please consider non-food treats as an alternative. Speak directly with your child's teacher. Do not send in any items until the teacher has responded and confirmed the appropriateness of your request. Thanks!
