Blue Paw Movie Days

All students who were Blue Paw winners from August-February will be having an opportunity to watch Toy Story 4 either this Friday (K-1) or next Thursday ( 2nd-5th). Students who have gotten Blue Paw so far in March will be added with the ones who are chosen between now and May and they will have a movie day at the end of the year.

Blue Paw is our incentive program based on attendance, tardies, behavior, and work ethic. Each K-1 teacher chooses a Blue Paw winner each week and each 2nd-5th grade teacher chooses a winner every two weeks. The week's winners come with me each week (or every other week) to the auditorium and I read them a book and just have a good time hanging out with them and then there is always a bigger reward. Last year we got to go on field trips, but then Covid happened, so this year it's a movie.

Big picture

This bag was found out front one morning last week. It is full of nice cloth masks. If it is yours, please let us know and come get it.

Transportation Changes

Please do not use the teacher's Remind messaging to request transportation changes. Teachers often get very busy toward the end of the day and don't check their messages and the change is missed. Also, sometimes teachers are out sick or with a sick child and have their phone turned on silent.

Transportation changes need to be a phone call to the front office. We have a running sheet that we add to throughout the day and then phone calls are made into the classroom using the school phone to tell the teacher (or substitute) that there is a change.

Transportation changes are very important so please help us make sure we have every opportunity to get it right for you:)
