October is Parent Visitation Month in Our Schools

Home and School: Cultivating Positive Relationships

Because parent engagement—now more than ever—is such a critical factor in determining the success or failure of students and schools, the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) recognizes the need for ongoing, meaningful parent engagement. The Department is promoting Statewide Parent Visitation Month in October and Trussville City Schools is proud to join in the promotion of parents and schools working together. Parent Visitation Month is intended as a community effort—a time for schools, businesses, community agencies, churches, and government to turn their attention to the important role of parents in the education of their children.

We are encouraging parents to take some time during the month of October and come have breakfast with your little husky. Breakfast is always less frenzied than lunch and would be the perfect time to connect with your child to get the day started!

Please be on the lookout for more opportunities and activities at Paine Primary throughout the month of October to celebrate our partnership with parents!

Is There a Louse in the House?

What are lice?

  • Lice are tiny, wingless insects that live on the human scalp.

What are the symptoms of lice?

  • An itchy scalp is the most common symptom of head lice. Lice lay their eggs near the root of the hair and are about the size of a poppy seeds. They do not wash or are blown away.

What do I do?

  • Use lice shampoo and a nit comb and follow the package instructions. If all the eggs are not removed, the eggs will hatch and lay up to 4-10 eggs a day, causing a re-infestation.

Information on how to help prevent and treat lice can be found at the link below:

This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!

Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. No more cutting labels, selling door to door, or time-consuming coordinating. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!

Get started today:

1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store

2. Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!

3. The first 20 supporters at our school will earn an extra $1 donation from Shoparoo for their first receipt!

5. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome app!
