Mrs. Owen's Weekly Newsletter
I apologize for this lag time, but please know our office is working hard to figure out where the delay is with that company.
Schofield T-Shirts Now Available
It is time to start Livin' that Schofield Life, families! We have a limited supply of t-shirts available in youth sizes. If you would like to purchase one, please send $12 cash in an envelope marked "Schofield T-Shirt" along with your student's name and size. Youth small, youth medium and youth large are the available sizes.
School dismisses daily at 3:30 with the exception of Fridays. Fridays we dismiss at 2:30. If your child will be going home a way other than their normal routine please send a note or call the office first thing. This ensures that I can get your child home safely! While I do try to check my voicemail and email throughout the day this isn't the best way to reach me for transportation changes. If you email or call too late in the day I may not see it until it's too late. The safest bet is for a note to be sent in the morning or for you to call our office (732-3610).

We will be setting goals frequently throughout the year as a class. I will post these for you to see our growth as we go.

Schofield's proportional attendance rate for the week was 95.53%. Remember our building level goal is to have a proportional attendance rate of more than 95%.
PTO - Box Tops
Schofield Elementary PTO collects box tops. If you send the box tops to school, the PTO will do the rest. Each box top is worth $0.10. They add up quickly and all money collected goes directly to Schofield. Be on the lookout because they appear on all kinds of products. Thank you in advance for your help.
Schofield has many opportunities for families to volunteer and be involved during the school day. If you are interested in the below parent involvement opportunities, please contact Ms. Markie Bravestone, Schofield’s Assistant Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch D.O.G.S. Dads
Dads spend the day mentoring students and helping around the school.
Greet students at the beginning of the day
Help with breakfast of lunch
Help in the art room or library
Read to your lifelong learner’s class
In addition to the above opportunities during the school day, parents can attend PTO Meetings, assemblies, special building events and serve on the Parent Lighthouse Team. Communication about these events are on Schofield’s Facebook page and in monthly building newsletters.
Standards Based Grading
From the Counselor
We talked about the following topic:
Applying effective problem-solving, decision-making and refusal skills to make safe and healthy life choices at school. Identifying issues that impact personal safety and coping skills for managing life changes or events.
Please ask your student about the balloon and the straws we used and why.
Your student will be bringing home a portfolio, at the end of the year, showing you EVERYTHING we did.
