News of the Week

March 12-16

Important Reminders!

Here are a few reminders for next week:


  • Today... today I was in the building, but at an all day grade-leader meeting. Apparently my substitute got our lunch times mixed up and got to the cafeteria with 5 minutes to spare. She was unaware of the option for the kids to eat in the room, so all of the kids had to come back to the room right away after having only a few minutes to eat. We corrected the problem by taking the class back to the cafeteria for a new, full lunch (at no charge) and had them eat it in the room. Just in case your child tells the story of them getting two lunches, that is reason!

  • PIR Reminder... Parents, please remember to log all of the minutes that you are reading at home in your child's red PIR folder. Minutes read here at school NO LONGER count towards their levels and prizes, so it is based solely on home reading. Our PIR day is usually Thursday, but occasionally our PIR parent needs to come on another day, so you may want to just leave their folders in their backpacks at all times. Thanks!
