Looking at OREO Cookies in a NEW way!
Earlier this week, first grade students in Mrs. Thompson's class worked on sharing their opinion in written form. Here is a FUN way to organize your thoughts to share an opinion.
It just happens to also make Eagles think of OREO cookies.
Eagles, It is COLD Outside!
The Park Hill guidelines for outside recess is if the real temperature or "feels like" temperature is 20 degrees or higher, then we will go OUTSIDE for recess. Eagles LOVE outside recess! PLEASE help us by labeling your child's coat(s) with his/her first and last name. THANK YOU! We return items to students that are FOUND in the Lost and Found area when a name identifies the owner. Thanks so much for your help!

Celebrating Birthdays at English Landing!
Celebrating Student Birthdays: (Park Hill Parent/Student Handbook pages 37-38):
We are happy to celebrate student birthdays and half birthdays (if your child has a summer birthday) at English Landing! To protect the health and safety of our students, families may bring pre-packaged treats to school to share with classmates. In order to address any known allergy concerns, a label listing ingredients should be affixed to the package. Due to allergies and other food intolerances, please consult with your classroom teacher before the pre-packaged treats are brought to school. As a healthier alternative, Park Hill Food Service offers a variety of nutritious treats that may be purchased.
At English Landing we need your HELP! Many birthday treats arrive at the beginning of the school day which provides us time to review the class list regarding food allergies or food intolerances, however, many other birthday treats arrive during lunch and often right at the same time the treat needs to be distributed to students. PLEASE plan on arriving earlier for lunch (at least 15 minutes) to give us time to check the pre-packaged treat ingredients with the students in the classroom who have food allergies or food intolerances. Our school nurse, Mrs. Kimbrel, and office staff, Mrs. Stevens, Mrs. Wood, or Mrs. Scott, will help with this process so when the lunchroom staff teachers distribute the treat in the cafeteria, additional steps have been taken to ensure we are protecting the health and safety of our eagles.
