Notes from Mrs. Klueppel...
We are excited to be back and to already have completed six full days of school. Students are feeling more comfortable with daily routines and are engaged in their classroom activities. We are all ready to start learning!
Please note the following items for your attention:
Traffic: Before and after school can be a hectic time for everyone. Please make sure you are paying attention to all traffic and pedestrians. We have had a near miss with an adult last week, children unbuckled and cars moving, and drivers on cell phones. PLEASE be alert and watchful for all things on and around our school property.
- Curriculum Nights: Two sessions each evening at 6:00-6:30 PM AND 6:45-7:15 PM
Kdg./2nd/4th on 8/26/19
1st/3rd/5th on 8/28/19
SIP Days: Dismissal is at 11:40 AM
Back to School Picnic is on August 22 at 6 PM. Join us for a family fun activity!
From the Office...
Fee payments and ADK tuition payments can be paid here. Please pay all registration fees right away if you have not done so.
Registration paperwork was to be completed last spring. If you have not completed it, please follow the link to the district website here to finish the process.
Paperwork went home last week about volunteering as a classroom parent. Please turn in those forms asap.
Absences should be called in before 8:40 AM if your child will be absent for any portion of the day. The number is 331-228-2100 and has voicemail. You can call during the evening or overnight and leave a message. Please leave your child’s name, their teachers name and the reason why your child is out. If they are ill, please indicate their symptoms (headache, vomiting, etc.).
From the Nurse...
Welcome back! The year is off to a great start already! We all know everyone learns best when they feel 100%. Lets work together to keep our kids and staff healthy this year!! Here is a friendly reminder of the district policy.
