Veteran's Day

You will be receiving an invitation soon for any veterans in your family to come have donuts and coffee with their grade schooler on the morning of Veteran's Day. Classrooms will be doing activities to educate the students about Veteran's Day.


  1. Please check your child's red folder each night for notes sent home and work that needs to be completed.
  2. Please be sure to send a note or call the office if your plans for after school need to change.
  3. If your child is going to be absent from school, please notify the office by 9:00 am.
  4. Doors are open for student drop off at 7:35.

Outdoor Recess

With the weather getting colder please make sure that you child has the following for outdoor recess:

  • A coat. Hoodies are not enough when the temperatures get cold.
  • Stocking hat and gloves
  • No shorts

Reading at Home

Reading at home is so important but can be a struggle to get some kiddos to read. The following are 10 tips to motivate kids to read at home:

  1. Make time for reading. With the busy schedules we all have, sometimes reading can feel like an unwelcome chore to kids. Try to allow reading to be a relaxing and enjoyable time.
  2. Set aside a regular read aloud time. Choose literature that is appealing to your kiddos' ages and interests. Audio books are another great option for those kids that are reluctant to read.
  3. Make sure the reading material is on their reading level. If what your child is trying to read is beyond their reading level, they are going to get frustrated and be more reluctant to read. Reach out to their teachers for them to help your child pick out books that interests them but are also on their level if your child is struggling with this.
  4. Create a special reading place. A special place to read might be all the encouragement needed to get those pages turning.
  5. Look for a variety of reading material. Having students use time to read doesn't just mean sitting down and reading a fiction or non-fiction book. Have them help read the recipe for dinner that night, or read a joke book as a family. Graphic novels are very popular, and how-to books are another great option.
  6. Try buddy reading, If your child is struggling to read, have them read a sentence or paragraph, then you read a sentence or paragraph.
  7. Have your child read an easy picture book to a younger sibling. This will be great practice for your older child and won't feel like work to them.
  8. Find something humorous to read. Find a funny book, and read the first chapter to your kiddo. If they want to see what happens next, have them read the next chapter.
  9. Show a love of reading yourself. If your child sees that you love to read, the more likely they'll develop a love of reading too.
  10. Provide access to books. Take them to the public library, try to have a little home library, keep books accessible to them.
