Romaine Lettuce Alert Info.

There is currently an advisory regarding romaine lettuce due to cases of E. Coli. Because they have not yet identified the source of the romaine, all romaine products are on hold. We normally serve 100% romaine, but as of Monday, we are receiving chopped green leaf lettuce.

Quick Reminder

If a student is going to take a bus home with a friend, they need a note from the office. Students need to take parent written notes to the office in exchange for an official bus pass. The bus drivers will not let a student on their bus if they are not a scheduled rider and will not let students off the bus at a stop that is not their usual stop without a note from the office.

Let's Build It!

STEM Learning- Wacky Waves! In this unit, students will design, build and test various circuits and electronic projects. Students will use hands-on projects and experiments to explore how electricity is part of our daily lives. See Flyer for details.

Let's Code It!

STEAM Learning- Kool Katz! This fun filled curriculum stresses critical thinking, creativity, confidence, teamwork, and problem solving skills to prepare them for the future. Some of the class topics will include video game design, loops, control structure, and more! See Flyer for details.

WINTER WEATHER GEAR

With the weather getting colder we are seeing students not dressed for the weather. Please note per policy: students are expected to go outside during normal school hours, except in inclement weather, defined as rain, heavy snow, a strong cold wind or a temperature below +5 degrees F, or if the wind chill factor goes below 0 degrees F. Children will remain indoors during lunch and recess periods on such days. If dressed appropriately, a student healthy enough to be in school should be able to go out for fresh air and exercise. After a prolonged illness with a doctor’s request we will excuse a child from recess. Students in 4K-3rd grade must wear snow pants, boots, jacket, mittens, and a hat if they want to play in the snow. Students who do not have the proper clothing will be asked to remain on the blacktop so they do not spend the remainder of their school day in wet clothing. Students in 4th – 8th grade are encouraged to dress for the snow but if they choose not to, and get wet, they may end up wearing damp clothes for the afternoon.

Raising Caring Kids

Raising Caring Kids: Feeling All My Feelings

Children whose parents support them when they express feelings have stronger social skills and better friendships. Just like adults, children feel different emotions such as happiness, sadness, embarrassment, and anger. Children’s emotions get more complex as they get older. This can be hard for children to understand. You can help by talking to them about how they feel in different situations.
