COUNSELORS CORNER

Here at Little Chico Creek we teach our students to fill each other’s buckets by doing our best to show kindness and respect to those around us. Bucket filling can be as simple as greeting someone in the morning or holding the door open for the next person. When we fill someone’s bucket, we fill our own at the same time! This holiday season, make it your mission to be a bucket filler!

Here are some ideas:

Be a good listener

Smile!

Give someone a compliment

Do your chores without having to be asked

Volunteer in your community

Do your best work in school

Tell someone how much you appreciate them

Show respect to everyone

Invite someone to play who looks left out or lonely

FORM 10 INFORMATION

Permission to attend a school other than the school of residence must be on written request of the parent or guardian and must be considered prior to the student's enrollment. This process must be done every year to hold your place if you are already on a Form 10. A request must also be made when a student moves out of a school's attendance area but wishes to remain in the school in which he/she is enrolled. Form 10 deadline is Dec. 4—Jan. 12.

JOG-A-THON NEWS

What a great event the Jog-a-thon was! Many thanks to PTSO, staff and parents that made it so successful. The winners for the most pledges collected are Logan Fellner, Hunter Lewis and Dax Clark. Miss Klein's class collected the most overall. Way to go students. You brought in $15,000+ for our school.

PAWING THRU PAGES

Don’t forget to sign the PTP sheets to count your students reading minutes. Remind them to keep taking their AR tests when they finish a book. The first prizes for minutes and words read will be awarded on Mon., Dec. 4th.

LCC T-SHIRTS

Parents, show your cheetah pride and purchase a T-shirt. They are $6 each. See PTSO or Ms. Amy in the library.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Clipping box tops from product packages that you use regularly is an easy way to support our school. Please send your neatly trimmed Box Tops to school in a sealed bag or envelope.

LIBRARY SUBS NEEDED

Do you like reading books to children? Do you like helping students make sure they have quality literature to take home to practice their reading? If so, we are looking for you. The elementary school libraries are looking for subs for the librarian position. Jobs are available at all sites. If you are interested in earning some extra money on the side or getting your foot in the door, please contact District Librarian, Stephanie Cunniff at scunniff@chicousd.org or 530.891.3111 for more information.

LEAVING CAMPUS EARLY

Little Chico Creek Sign Out Policy- If your child is leaving campus during school hours, your child will be called to the office ONLY once you have arrived to sign him or her out. Please keep this in mind and give extra time in the event the students are not in their classroom. No exceptions.

ARRIVAL TO SCHOOL

Class starts at 8:30AM, first bell rings at 8:25AM and students should be in their class line on the playground. Supervision for students on campus begins at 8:00AM on the playground. We ask that students arrive as close to the starting as possible. If students arrive earlier than 8:00AM, they are to report to the cafeteria where they will sit quietly until the 8:00 bell rings.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP

Parking White Zones are strictly for loading or unloading of passengers. You may NOT leave your car unattended during this time. You may occupy the white zone for a maximum of three minutes. Red zones are for emergency vehicles and designated for buses ONLY. No parking at any time! (California Penal Code, Section 21458 Curb Markings). Please be aware, violations of the above could result in a parking ticket administered by the Chico Police Department. Please use the designated parking lots on Amanda Way and Hartford Dr. Please do not park in the reserved places in the Amanda Way parking lot.

LOST AND FOUND

Have you been searching for the jacket your child wore to school, but never made it home? We are overflowing with items that have not been found yet. Please come take a look.

NEWS FROM THE CAFETERIA

Student meals cannot be shared with other students, siblings or parents. Additional breakfast/lunch can be purchased if parents or siblings would like to join their student for breakfast or lunch. Our breakfast and lunch program is a state funded program and this is a requirement of the state. Breakfast is served 7:30-8:20am. After 8:20am students will need to take their meal back to class with them so they will not be tardy.

NEWS FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE

We need small clothes in the health office and small shoes! If you have any clothes sizes 5-7 and shoes sizes 1—4, your donation would be appreciated. It’s more for Kinder and first graders, especially girls!

ORDER YOUR YEAR BOOK

You won’t want to miss the yearbook. Yearbook order forms coming home. Cost is now $20. Order it early to be sure you get one.

2018-2019 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be held on the following dates at the locations indicated below. To enter Kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018. To enter Transitional Kindergarten, a child must turn five between September 2, 2018 and December 2, 2018. Parents should register their children at the school serving their residence area. Proof of residence is required. An online school locator program is available at http://www.chicousd.org/Schools/School-Locator/index.html. Parents can input their address and find out their resident school.

Parents are strongly encouraged to register on the designated dates. Priority will be assigned based on the date of registration. The time of day that registration occurs will not constitute a priority. All children will be enrolled, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area.

The following are required to register a child: (1) proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency, and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department. Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry. State law requires students beginning Kindergarten have all required immunizations. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start school until we receive these records.
