REMINDERS FROM NURSE DEBBIE, RN
Attention 6th Grade Parents
If your child has not yet received the Tdap vaccination, please contact your health care provider to schedule an appointment. Once the vaccine is received, please provide a copy of the updated shot record to the main office. If you do not wish to have your child immunized, you are required to sign a waiver. You may obtain a waiver form from the school office.
Attention Kindergarten Parents
If your child has not yet received his/her “kindergarten shots” (DTaP, Polio. MMR, Varicella), please contact your health care provider to schedule an appointment. Once the vaccines have been received, please provide a copy of the updated shot record to the main office. If you do not wish to have your child immunized, you are required to sign a waiver. You may obtain a waiver form from the school office.
Per Wisconsin state statute, all students are required to be fully immunized or have a waiver on file by the 30th day of school.
Please feel free to contact me at 920.419.7302 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Thank you!
NEWSWORTHY ODDS AND ENDS
Bell Times for Start of the School Day
All students in Grades 7/8 should be on the blacktop/playground area by the 7:45 a.m. bell. Students must be in their classroom seats by the 7:50 a.m. bell.
Students in Grades K-6 should be on the blacktop/playground area by the 7:45 a.m. bell. Students are to be in their classroom seats by the 8:00 a.m. bell.
School Security -- Adults in the School Building
We ask all parents to drop off their children and pick them up on the playground. Please remember that school is in session earlier and later for our 7th and 8th grade students. We need to keep our building secure for our students between the school hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.
To ensure safety all adults need to sign in at the office and wear a visitor's badge. Staff is required to stop all adults without a badge and escort them to the office.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP
For safety reasons please escort your children across any street or parking lot. Though it is tempting, waving your child to come to you across a street is unsafe and has caused a few "close calls" in the past.
We also ask that you refrain from taking/placing cell phone calls or texting during drop off/pick up after kids have been released while you are in the school zone.

PEGASUS FLYERS, CLASSICAL COLUMNS, THE CLASSICAL WEBSITE, AND FACEBOOK
The white envelope that typically comes home on Thursdays (Gr. 1-8) is called the "Pegasus Flyer." Important notices and school papers are sent home in this envelope weekly.
The Classical Columns, the school's newsletter, is typically published once a month and emailed home at the beginning of the month. Please take time to read this important publication as you will find answers to what is up and coming, information on CCSA Board work, club and activities updates, school calendar, and much more! If you would like a hard copy, you may pick one up outside the school office.
Classical School Website
If you haven't had a chance to visit our school's website lately, please do so! It is an excellent resource for current and prospective families who would like to learn more about classical education and the Core Knowledge Curriculum! Visit the website for teacher biographies, enrollment information, and so much more! www.classicalcharter.com

TREATS AND SNACKS IN THE SCHOOL SETTING
Birthday and other celebrations during the school day will not include students bringing in snacks from home to share and will instead take place through non-food practices.
Recognizing students in ways that better support overall student wellness also has a variety of positive benefits:
- Reduced social and economic pressures on families to provide celebration snacks
- Increased cultural awareness for families with respect to birthday and other celebrations
- Avoidance of unintended consequences related to food allergies and decreased complications for students with medical issues
Together we will continue to ensure that we are implementing best practices that focus on increased student wellness for every child, every day in the Appleton Area School District.

We are pleased to announce that our school library now has Spanish backpacks to check out!

*A book with CD recording
*A book of common Spanish phrases
