Conferences are October 15 & 17. If you’re going to need more than ten minutes, please respect everyone’s time and set up a time to meet after your scheduled conference for a more in-depth conversation.
Book Fair 2019, October 14-21
New this year is an option called student eWallet. When you create an eWallet, the amount you select as your student's spending limit will appear as a temporary hold (or pending charge) on your credit card and will be reflected in your available balance. You will only be charged for what is purchased, and after the book fair ends, the hold will expire and the funds will be released back to your credit card. Additional funds can be added to the eWallet at any time. You can also cancel funds. Track spending and see all activity in your order history through your MyScholastic account. Student eWallets are looked up at the book fair using the student's name, grade, or teacher; eWallets do not have to be printed or presented to a cashier. You must create an eWallet for each student; accounts cannot be shared or transferred. If any items purchased during the fair are returned, the amount will be credited back to your card. Processing times may vary. Contact your credit card company for specific information regarding your account.
Lost and Found
Fall is definitely here which means winter can’t be too far behind. With the cooler weather comes warmer clothes. Of course we’re in Michigan and a day that starts at 50⁰ may end at 70⁰. This often leads to coats being left on the playground or other various locations around our campus. Please take a few minutes to check out our lost & found rack by the main entrance and claim your lost belongings. Glasses, electronics, and jewelry are held in the office. We make a clothing donation every quarter.
School Calendar and Hours
The annual school calendars along with district information may be accessed online at www.marletteschools.org.
Students are expected to be in class by 8:15 when the second bell rings and stay until the dismissal bell at 3:00.
Breakfast and Lunch
Breakfast is served every morning, free of charge, in every classroom. Lunch is available for only $2.45. Milk is available for $.40.
School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families, too! Parents are encouraged to complete the free/reduced meal form application each year as the qualifications change. Furthermore, forms may be re-submitted at any time during the school year if there is a change in financial status with the household. For more information, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 989-635-7429.
October is Bullying Prevention Month
When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.
Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.
