Better Together...Our Community Empowers Students
November 2nd Early Dismissal
Family Reading Night/Book Fair
Students in 5-8 grades are able to participate in basketball. Students must be committed to the season. We are allowing 4th grade boys to participate due to low numbers in 5th and 6th grade.
Academic Requirements – In order to participate in sports, cheer or clubs, students must:
1. Maintain a C- average in basic subjects.
2. Have a passing grade in all classes.
3. Be present for the last four hours of the day of the game, or have pre-scheduled appointments approved by admin.
4. Not be under any suspension or expulsion.
These academic requirements pertain to basketball, cheer, Science Olympiad, and archery.
Failure to meet these requirements on the mid-quarter or quarterly report card will result in ineligibility of extracurricular activities for a period of four weeks upon issuance of the report. After four weeks, if requirements are met, the eligibility is reinstated. If not, ineligibility continues until the next report card. Grade check for ineligible athletes will be November 21st. The student may attend practices, but may not participate in events (games).
Athletes must have a current sports physical and copy of insurance card on file. Players will not be able to practice until they have their physical. Physicals are good for two years.
The basketball schedule will be shared at the November 3rd meeting. After that, it will be put on the website under the sports tab.
Archery will begin at the end of November. More information will be sent home with students closer to date. Practices will be on Mondays at 4:30 pm. Due to the popularity of the archery program, we had to limit the number of students that we can safely supervise in the gym. We can not have more than 20 students. This year, grades 7-8 may participate in the archery club after school. Grade 6 will practice during their PE time. Mr. Trentmann is the archery coach.
SCHOOL BOARD FILING

The school will be closed the 19th-26th.

Filing will not occur on days that the school district's office is closed due to inclement weather or other health related reasons, with the exception of opening and closing days of filing. The district may not open even on the first day and last day if weather conditions make it unsafe for school staff to travel.
Placements of candidates appear on the ballot in the order they file. Please contact Karen Hoffmann if you have any questions.
Mid-quarter for 2nd quarter is November 21st
Have a colicky baby or one struggling to sleep through the night? Are you struggling to find effective ways to ease your child’s discomfort caused by growth or illness? Consider Infant Massage! Infant massage promotes relaxation and creates an excellent bonding experience between a child and their parent. By learning infant massage techniques from our Certified Infant Massage Instructors (CIMI) parents can help relieve teething pains, congestion, or colic in their infants while also promoting healthy weight gain and more sound sleep patterns. Infant Massage Classes are designed for infants ranging in age from newborn to 8 months and both mothers and fathers are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
This event is free; however, registration is required. Deadline to RSVP will be on the Friday before the event date at 6pm.

Franklin County R-II Presents...Matilda Jr.!
Grandparents and family members unable to attend the evening performance can attend the dress rehearsal at 3:15PM on the day of the show. There will be no flash photography or video allowed in accordance with copyright law.
The School Messenger phone system will be activated if a decision is made to close school. We have set up the phone system to call and text to the cell number of every student and employee in the district. You should be contacted by phone with a recorded message in the event we have a school closing. Messages will also be sent out via ClassTag and be posted on Facebook. You may also watch or listen to the following TV stations:
2, 4, 5, 11, & 30
The television stations have a computerized system and our school name appears almost immediately (depending on the alphabetical order scrolling across the bottom of the screen) once the information is entered. The first time for closing school each year is often problematic so you should check different channels for our school closing information. School closing information will also be posted on Facebook.
Please make sure your child understands where they are to go if school is called off early. Students will be taken to their usual drop off unless you have sent instructions indicating an alternate drop off for early dismissals. It will be much less confusing if this issue is addressed before the situation arises.
2. Schedule a routine study time
3. Help your student make a plan- What is due tomorrow? Is anything late? What tests do you have coming up?
4. Minimize distractions (phones, TVs, loud music etc.)
5. Motivate instead of monitor- Ask about assignments, quizzes, RC, and tests. Give encouragement, look over completed work, and make sure you are available to answer questions.
6. Be sure to sign the planner-Your student's planner is a good tool for communication between school and home.
7. Reach out to the teacher before small issues become big issues.
8. "I don't have any homework." Have you heard that? Well, there is typically always something to work on. Students should be reading nightly, studying math facts for fluency, practicing sight words, etc. There is always room for improvement!
Our goal is to help you help your student be successful in school! Remember, students in grades 3-8 can stay for Project Success if they are needing help in specific areas.
