CROC TALK BRIEF

Nancy Ryles Elementary Newsletter ~ September 24, 2021

TRAFFIC SAFETY

We have seen an increase in parents utilizing the carline for pick-up and drop-off. As a result, we are experiencing an increase in traffic congestion at arrival and dismissal. Please try to arrive early, be patient, and drop off at the top of the stairs that go down towards the main entrance to the school. Please refrain from letting your student out in the middle of the road. Thank you for helping us with traffic flow and student safety.

BABY WIPES NEEDED

Parents, we are in need of baby wipes! If you would like to donate, we will start collecting them next week. We will place bins out front where you or your student can drop your donation.

Thank you in advance for supporting Nancy Ryles.

NRCO NEWS & EVENTS

NRCO PACKETS & SPIRIT WEAR SALE

Look in those backpacks! Packets went home last Friday with lots of information from the NRCO. This will be your last chance, until next year, to purchase a school t-shirt and sweatshirt. All orders are due by Friday, October 1.


DINING FOR DOLLARS - D4$

Thank you to everyone who enjoyed MOD Pizza yesterday for our first Dining for Dollars event!

Save the date for our next opportunity to skip making dinner, enjoy take out and raise money for our school all at the same time! We hope to see you at Chipotle on Tuesday, October 5.


NEXT NRCO MEETING

Tuesday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom. A link will be provided.


VOLUNTEER NEEDS

Donations Needed

If anyone is heading to the store this weekend and has the resources to purchase a few extra items ... we are looking for snack donations. This snack supply will be used for students who do not bring a snack from home. Specifically, the school needs pre-packaged, peanut free snacks. These can be dropped in the office or sent to school with your student. Please label your donation with "school snack supply."


Classroom Liaisons

We are looking for a Classroom Liaison for each teacher. Classroom Liaisons serve a key role in the school, acting as a link between the teacher and the parent volunteers. While things will look unique this year, it’s a role that helps with coordination and communication between the teacher and all of the classroom parents.


Teacher Appreciation

Looking for a rewarding way to volunteer? Join a fun team and help plan the 2020-2021 school year staff appreciation events. We’re just getting started, so now is the time to get in on the ground floor! We accept anyone, regardless of availability. There is no time requirement and there are a variety of roles available. Have some great ideas but not sure about the time commitment? Join the team as an Idea Generator!


All volunteer opportunities are posted on Better Impact.

SPIRIT WEAR - ORDERS DUE BY OCTOBER 1

Now is the time to purchase a school t-shirt and sweatshirt (this will be the only time to order spirit wear this year).

All orders are due by Friday, October 1. Order forms are included in the NRCO packet that went home last week.

If you can't find it, click here for the digital copy.

NO GUEST BUS RIDERS

Transportation cannot allow "guest" bus riders at this time. If you want another student to go home with your child, you will need to pick them up at school.


This procedure is in place to aid with COVID bus capacity and contract tracing.


Thank you for understanding.

TALENTED & GIFTED (TAG) INFORMATION

Every year students are considered for Talented and Gifted services in the Beaverton School District. These services are provided by your child's classroom teacher(s). Oregon law and District policy define gifted students as those who score at or above the 97th percentile on a standardized, nationally normed test of mental ability and/or academic achievement in reading and/or math. Behavioral, learning, and/or performance information is also considered before a student is identified for TAG services.


If you think your child might qualify for TAG services, you may wish to complete the Parent Information Form that is available in our school’s office linked below. Completing this form gives our school TAG Committee more information about your child, but it is not required. All qualified students will be considered regardless of the form’s completion.


Please complete and return the Parent Information Form to your the office.

INTERNATIONAL WALK + ROLL TO SCHOOL DAY

On October 6, 2021 join people from around the world as we celebrate International Walk + Roll to School Day. Walk, bike, scooter, skate, roll, bus or carpool to school and be entered to win fun prizes. The grand prize winner will earn a new scooter with helmet! Walking and rolling to school is great for kids, our community and our planet. Here are the top five reasons:

  1. Fewer vehicles driving to school reduces traffic congestion and carbon emissions near schools and in our parking lots.
  2. More people walking and rolling builds school community and makes routes safer.
  3. Physical activity boosts kids’ readiness to learn and improves their physical and mental health.
  4. Kids have fun with friends and bond with families while walking and rolling together.
  5. Being outside builds independence and lifelong transportation skills.
