October newsletter

This is the October Parent Newsletter. I didn't many pictures so I'll combine September and October in the November newsletter for a slideshow. Please add your pictures so it's not just the Fordyce/Robinson/Barnec show...

Boys and Girls Club

Yes it is true. Starting in November there will be no more Latchkey. Boys and Girls Club will be the new after school care. I'm still waiting for specific information, but Kim Sneed is supposed to be sending out information to the public on the transition and i know they will hold parent meetings regarding this.

Positivity Project Week Five: Other People Matter Mindset Being Present

I don't have the agenda ready yet...I did but did the wrong OPM trait!

I know we will start with 4th grade Day 1, Day 2, 3rd Grade Day 1, but not sure after that.


From Mrs. Villarreal

*Teachers please make sure you put your name on the second page of the ADHD Vanderbilt forms. Also, try to get the doctor’s name and fax number for me. This makes it faster to process.

*Send me the names of one boy and one girl from your home room that can serve as a the Anchored 4 Life team leader. They should remain in this position for the 1st semester.

*With Red Ribbon Week around the corner, start planning for the door decorating contest. The themes are the same as last year..most Halloween theme, best anti- drug message, and most creative (I think). We will have celebrity judges from central to pick the winners. The prize is Big Red ice cream floats! This is optional. Please send me your room number so I can add you to my list.

From Mrs. Cristan

Please return any office emergency lights or box fans that were distributed from the office to me.

Please return any extra textbooks to me. If you need any extras, please let me know.

Email any perfect attendance ideas/suggestions to me.

Our 1st perfect attendance student celebration is Friday, October 11th, at the end of the day in the commons area. Students will receive an invitation that reads- You get to CHILL OUT with ice cream because you were here everyday.

Perfect attendance student celebrations will take place 1 week after the six weeks period ends.

From Mrs. Hoover
