MAP Reports

Just as an FYI - FAll MAP reports will be sent home to all families on Friday, September 23rd. I'll share more information about these reports next week.

Milk at Lunch

We provide milk during lunch (1%) for a minimal fee ($55/year). If you are interested in purchasing milk for your child(ren), please go into your Family Access accounts. Starting on Monday, September 19th, we'll only be providing milk to those students who have paid. Up until now, we've provided milk on a more lenient basis while parents get to determine if its something they want to purchase.

Playground Committee Volunteers - 2nd Posting

We are putting together a committee of parents, staff, and students to research, plan, and make decisions about a new playground getting installed on the intermediate side of our school this summer (for our older students in 4th and 5th grades). If you are interested in participating on this committee, please complete this form at your convenience. As an FYI - the playground on the primary side of our building was installed in summer 2014.

We will probably have a total of 3 or 4 meetings over the course of the next few months. And, we are only in need of 3 or 4 parents so if I have more interest than than, I will simply pick out of a hat.

PPS Event - 2nd Posting

Here is a parent opportunity being held on Sept 28th at Shepard Middle School about executive functioning. PPS is a community and school district organization that serves many purposes, and occasionally puts on evening events for parents. (PPS stands for Parents and Professionals for Success).
