Little Shopper's Shop

We are looking for volunteers to help with our Little Shopper's Shop on December 6 and 7. LSS is an opportunity for students to shop for holiday gifts for their family members. They bring in money and choose from a variety of gifts for the people on their lists. Please consider using "Elf Wallet" to pay for items using a credit or debit card. You can find a form to support you here.

We also need people to help students pick out gifts and make sure they have enough money and we will need volunteers to help "wrap" their gifts in bags and write who they are to and from on the bags. Please use the following link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B4CA8A722ABFE3-little

Parent's Night Out

We are looking at having a "Parent's Night Out" event. It would occur on Friday, December 9 from 5:30pm -8:00 pm. Volunteers would come before and stay after to help with setup and clean up. So for volunteers this would be from 5:00pm - 8:30 pm. Parents would sign up using a sign up genius form and space would be limited to ensure a safe child to adult ratio for the evening. We will provide food (most likely pizza, chips and a drink), crafts, and fun for the children while parents have a night out shopping for the holidays, or just a night to themselves. This sign up is just to see how many parents we can get to help with the evening! If you're interested in volunteering to help chaperone this event please sign up using the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B4CA8A722ABFE3-parents

Report Cards

Report Cards for Trimester 1 will be sent electronically on Friday, December 9! Look out for an email with your child's report card by the end of the day.

PBIS Handbook and Survey

We are looking to gather feedback from parents and guardians about our PBIS program at QE and we need your help. Please review the PBIS handbook found here and then complete the survey found here. All parents/guardians who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing to win some gift cards. We will leave this posted in the Smore for the next 2 weeks and will share our results from the survey and announce the winners. Thanks for your help!
