The Knight Times

May 7, 2021

A Note from Ms. Coyle

We had a fun end to our week. We Knighted almost 50 students! We will have at least one more Knighting this year. The video has been posted to our Facebook page as well as pictures of each student. Next week we will be taking NWEA. Results will be emailed home when testing has been completed. Our eLearners will be taking NWEA during the week of May 17th. The Nicholson office will be in touch to schedule a time. We will have several windows available for students to come in. Mrs. Lawson, Mrs. Peacock and I will be available to supervise students in the computer lab while testing. Have a nice weekend! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your child.

A Note from Mrs. Peacock

** Please continue to send your students with masks to school **


What a week! We've been very busy around Nicholson. I have been working on Field Day plans for our students. It will tentatively be on Monday & Tuesday, May 24/25. More details will be given as we close in on the end of the year. Unfortunately, we are still unable to have volunteers but you will be able to catch photos and videos on our Facebook page.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Morning Drop Off

Our parking lot is very busy in the mornings and also very dark. Please follow the flow of traffic (no u-turns) and stay in line until you've dropped your student off. I also ask that you do not get out of line and bypass other cars after dropping your student off. We have students that walk around the vehicle when exiting and cutting out of line creates very unsafe situations.


Also, our car rider door closes and locks at 7:50am. After this time, you MUST drop your student off at the main doors. Please do not leave your student at the car rider door if it is not attended by a staff member.


Thank you for helping us keep the students and parking lot safe!

Parent Resources

Hi, I am Emily Petrie. I am one of the Education Specialists for Crawfordsville Schools and a part of the corporation’s resiliency team. I would like to share some resources with you each month to help build resiliency. Resiliency is the capacity to recover or bounce back in difficult times.


This month I want to share a little about executive functioning. Executive function is a set of mental skills that include working memory, flexible thinking, and managing daily life. Children aren’t born with these skills, but they are born with the potential to develop them. Many things can affect the development of executive functioning skills. Here are some resources with great information about executive functioning. https://www.understood.org/en/learning-thinking-differences/child-learning-disabilities/executive-functioning-issues/what-is-executive-function

Dismissal

Dismissal is now at 2:05pm!


Car riders are picked up in our parking lot. PLEASE do not block the entrance to the Lane House Nursing Home. If your child is consistently a car rider in the afternoon, you are required to have a school-issued tag that coordinates with your student. If you did not receive tags, please email Mrs. Peacock (lpeacock@cville.k12.in.us) to get one. Students will not be released to anyone without a tag or a note from the office. Transportation changes must be made by 1:30. Thank you!

Health Checks

Please continue to monitor your children daily for symptoms of illness and keep your child home if they are sick. We will continue to use the Indiana State Department of Health’s Symptoms Screener Form, but I also wanted to let you know our updated symptoms from our own Montgomery County Health Department. These symptoms include; slight runny nose, scratchy throat, low grade to no fever, fatigue, & cough (even slight).


We understand this has been a very difficult and trying season, but we are so thankful for your ongoing support and understanding as we do our best to meet the needs of all our children. As always, please call with any questions. I will be happy to talk through whatever situation might arise. Please see the attached Parent Screener Form as well as a great visual of why following quarantine guidelines is so important.
