Yearbook Update

Dedication and Personalization Deadline - Feb 19:

February 19 is the last day to order your yearbook if you'd like your child's name on the front.

It's also the last day to order Pre-K through 4th grade dedications. Each are only $5!

Order forms went home last week, or email me for a copy.

Slide Show and Dedications:

If you sent me photos for a 5th grade dedication, and you'd like to use the same photos

for the 5th grade slide show, please email me and let me know. I'll be happy to forward

those photos to the person putting the slide show together.

Yearbook Photo Needs:

I'm wrapping up the last few pages, because my final deadline is coming up.

Thank you to everyone who took and submitted pictures this year.

Look for your photos when the yearbook comes out in May.

Final Yearbook Count

I'm turning in my final count to the plant on February 26. If you preordered, then you're guaranteed a yearbook.

If not, I'll have a small supply of extra copies. I'll continue to sell them, first come, first served.

I anticipate selling out early this year!

Order online at www.jostensyearbooks.com or email me for an order form.

Not sure if you ordered? Contact me! mulberryyearbook@hotmail.com

SIX FLAGS READING

Six Flags Reading Program has begun!

Each student must read 6 hours to earn a Six Flags ticket

to be used this summer. Six hours is only 360 minutes!

Record any reading from January 16 – February 19.

What do parents have to do? All you have to do is

complete the reading log of your child’s reading minutes.

Your child’s teacher sent home the log in the Friday folder.

I can’t find my child’s reading log? If you misplace your log, feel free to ask

the teacher for another log. All reading MUST be completed on a Six Flags reading log.

When is the deadline? All reading logs must be returned to your

child’s teacher by February 22.

Transportation Changes

We strongly encourage you to send your child home the same way every day. However, we do understand that emergencies do arise. Should you need to change your child's transportation, a hand written note from home is required with a parent signature.

Phone calls and emails are not accepted.
