Mr. Sellenheim's Greeting

Early Education (4K) Starts Monday!

Early education classes begin this Monday, September 11! The morning session are held from 7:25AM and run through 10:35AM. The afternoon sessions start at 11:10AM and end at 2:25PM. We can't wait to see our littlest dragons start their learning journey at Grewenow!

Student safety is our top priority in the parking lot

Just a reminder that during the morning drop off and afternoon pick up times, staff vehicles are the only vehicles allowed in the parking lot. Beginning Monday, September 11, cones will block off the parking lot and safety patrol students will be stationed to help students across that driveway and move the cones for staff ONLY. Please do not ask safety patrol members to move the cones as their answer will be "No."

Seal-A-Smile Program

This week, students in grades 2, 3, and 5 students received a green permission form for the Wisconsin Seal-A-Smile dental sealant program in the Wednesday take home folder. This program provides an opportunity for students to receive a new toothbrush, good dental health instruction, a fluoride treatment, and sealants (if appropriate).

To support this program the success of this excellent program, the Kenosha County Health Center is offering students an incentive to return the permission forms to school. Any classrooms that turn in 75% or more of their flyers will earn an ice cream party.

Additionally, if a classroom reached 100% return rate, teachers will earn a $25 Amazon gift which will be used for classroom resources.
