UNITED WAY RESULTS

We wanted to extend a huge thank you to our entire Schumacher family for their donations to the United Way campaign! Through participation in spirit days, a silent auction, and other donations, we raised a total of $1,870! These donations help out families in need throughout our city.

SPANISH CLUB

Hola from The Language Project! Did you know Schumacher has a Spanish Club? We are currently accepting enrollments; simply click here to enroll your student.


Bilingualism has many benefits! Aside from acquiring a language, bilingual students on average multitask at a higher rate, test higher on standardized tests, and their brains function at a higher rate. Check out this news article on bilingual brain benefits: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/11/13/people-who-speak-two-language-have-more-brain-power-study-says/?intcmp=ob_homepage_health&intcmp=obnetwork.

Email us at director@languageprojectkids.com for questions or more information. We look forward to having your student join in on our bilingual journey.

PTA FREE MOVIE NIGHT: FROZEN

PTA is hosting their second FREE movie night on Friday, December 12th at 7:00pm. Join other Schumacher families as we watch Disney's Frozen! There will be popcorn, drinks, and snacks available for purchase as well.


In addition Red Wheel Fundraiser orders will be available for pick up during this night from 5:00-8:00pm.

LIBERTY COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS TREE FOOD DRIVE

STUCO is sponsoring its annual food drive benefiting the Liberty Community Christmas Tree. Students can bring in non-perishable food items and paper products that will be distributed to families in the LPS school district. Thanks for your support!

LIBERTY NECESSITIES DRIVE

Thank you to all those who have helped stock our Necessities Closet here at Schumacher. Your donations are greatly appreciated and are being distributed directly to our families here at Schumacher. Our district's Necessity Closet is in need of restocking as well. If you would like to donate items to this closet as well, simply send items to school with your student. They are in need of hygiene items, cleaning supplies, etc.

LOST & FOUND

Parents, Just a reminder that our Lost & Found is located in the cafeteria by the doors leading out to the playground. If your student is missing something, stop by sometime and take a look to see if you can locate your missing item. And be sure to write your student's name on the tag of their coat, jacket, or sweatshirt making it easier to identify when missing.
