2F Weekly News

Week of Sunday January 10, 2016

A Note from Ms. Graves

Dear Parents,

The 2F community is very excited about our new responsibility of managing dragon bands. During a class meeting we decided students may wear their band during the day as long as it does not take away from their learning. Otherwise they will store their band in a special tub during the day and pick it up right before dismissal. I am encouraging children to store the bands in a small zippered section of their backpack at the end of each day. This way the bands don't accidentally get left at home. :)


If you haven't had the chance to sign up for Carol's Let's Do the Math session, please see the form below. It will be very informative of the addition and subtraction strategies we are teaching in our next 2 math units!


Reminders

New Entry to Campus Procedures


  • Starting January 17th, 2016 there will be some changes for students and parents entering the ASD Campus​ supporting student safety.​ ​All students will be required to scan their Dragon Wristband entering and exiting the campus. It is recommended that you remind your child to wear their wristband daily. Replacement Dragon bands may be purchased at the front desk of the Administrative entrance for 50 qr. Wristbands will be distributed to Lower Elementary Students next week by their teachers. Your child's dragon band will be labeled with their name by a key tag. We kindly ask parents to keep this label on the wrist band for easy identification.
  • Parents and domestic staff will not be permitted through Gate 5 for morning drop off.​ ​Students​ may enter through Gate 5 using their wristbands and teachers will be there to supervise starting at 7:40 AM. Parents wishing to accompany their children to classes are asked to enter through Gates 8 & 10. ​
  • Pick-up procedures will remain the same, parents will be able to enter and exit the campus through Gate 5 from 2:45 - 4:15 PM. Pick up procedures for PACT Tuesdays and our Pre-K Students will also remain the same, parents will be able to enter through Gate 5 at 12:15 PM. We kindly ask parents and guests to enter through Gate 8 during the school day. We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we work to keep our school safe and continue the improvements to the ASD campus.


Cheers,

Emily
