Obey the Stop Signs!

Traffic in our parking lot during pick up has gotten increasingly more dangerous since the beginning of the year. If a bus has their stop sign out, you cannot pass the bus. It doesn't matter which direction you are driving or which side of the bus you are on. DO NOT PASS a bus that is loading or unloading children. This truly is for the safety of all students. I understand that waiting in the parking lot isn't ideal, but I think we can all agree that the safety of our kids is far more important that saving a few minutes at pick up.

Just Shave It

This year, Ferson will be honoring our very own Jimmy Schafer! Show your support for Team Jimmy buy purchasing a shirt using this link. All orders for shirts need to be placed by Friday, February 28th so that we receive them in time for the Just Shave It event on Saturday, March 14th. Any questions? Contact Stephanie Turner, Early Childhood teacher at stephanie.turner@d303.org.

Upcoming Non-Attendance Day

Due to a Teacher Institute Day, there is no school on Friday, February 28th.

Thank you PTO!

A huge THANK YOU to our PTO and all the parent volunteers that made After School Enrichment a success. There was something for everyone at ASE, from cupcake decorating to fencing, and everything else in between!

Middle School Transfer Requests

Middle School Transfer requests may may be submitted February 3 through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student. Requests are granted based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.

Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.

Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.

Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.

Please support the St. Charles Education Foundation

There are a few tickets left for the 25th annual gala on February 22, 2020. But even if you can’t attend, you can still support the foundation. In addition to bidding on some fantastic baskets, anyone can buy e-raffle tickets for a chance to win $500 cash or $500 in D303 fees! The best part is, all the proceeds go right back into D303 schools! More information: https://e.givesmart.com/events/eYs/i/
