Lunch Bunch Forms - Due Tomorrow!

Lunch Bunch forms are due to the office (with payment) on Tuesday, September 1. Please note that forms must be received by tomorrow in order for your child to participate in September. If you need a form, please contact the school office.

The "L" Word

Please be aware that lice are especially bad this year and we have had a couple of cases within our school. So far there is no indication that children have picked them up at school. Please keep an eye on your child, especially if they complain of an itchy head. That's usually the first sign. Lice can be picked up anywhere - movie theaters, gymnastic or karate studios, etc.

We will routinely do head checks within the school and will alert individual parents if we find anything. It is certainly nothing to be embarrassed about. It's just one of those things and a big pain.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Hunger Action Month - September

Once again, we are partnering with the River Valley Regional Food Bank for Hunger Action Month. A calendar will be going home with your child today. There are some great things planned - both big and small, and something for everyone. We will kick it off tomorrow at 2:00p with a program for K-6.

Please take a few minutes to look over the calendar with your child and explore how you would like to get involved.

School T-Shirts

Order forms will go home this week for 2015-16 school t-shirts.

This year we are celebrating our school's heritage and 46th year of educating children in the River Valley.

Order forms will be due back to the school office no later than Friday, September 18.

Short sleeve t-shirts are $15.

Long sleeve hoodie shirts are $22.

Youth sizes will be available.
