The Week Ahead Memo

State Road Elementary School

Tuesday, September 08, 2015

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!! I want to wish you all a wonderful, safe, and successful school year! I am proud to work with each of you and know that we will continue to do great things this year! Focus on relationships with your students and parents over the first few weeks and I know you will be rewarded!

Events This Week!

Half Day of School!

Today is a Half Day of School! Student dismissal is at 11:55am. I will be riding a bus over to the Shuttle Stop after school to help support that transition. I would appreciate if we had as many staff as possible supporting our students getting picked up today in our Main Lot and New Lot. Please remind students that if they are walking - they are only allowed to cross State Road at the Crossing Guard area of our Main Lot.

Pledge of Allegiance and Daily Affirmation

We will begin with the Pledge of Allegiance this morning and then move right into our new Daily Affirmation! I will lead this from a different classroom each morning.

Barb created a poster that several inquired about, so I made one for every classroom. Please pick up in the office if you don't already have one. Thanks, Barb!

Hungry Howie's Night!

This Thursday, Sept. 10 is our first Hungry Howie's Night Fundraiser of the year! As a reminder, the class with the most families who participate in ordering from the Hungry Howie's on LeRoy St. will win a Class Pizza Party!!! :-)

FEF Black Tie Dinner

The Fenton Education Foundation's BLACK TIE DINNER is this Thursday, Sept. 10 at The Laundry! Tickets are still available if you would like to attend and enjoy a great night out! I have a few tickets left to sell if interested!

Patriot Day Ceremony

We will hold our annual Patriot Day Ceremony outside by the flagpole this Friday, September 11. The ceremony will be similar to years past. More information will be emailed out later this week!
