To the Point
Prairie Point Staff Newsletter
Volume 2, Issue #1: Monday, August 3, 2015
In this first Issue of the year, we have included some important information for you as you begin planning for your return to school.
A Message to All at Prairie Point: The Time to Be Awesome is NOW
In the video, I asked students to think about their superpower for a reason. I've purchased a blank cape for every student. I would like to ask that you allow some time on the first day of school for them to decorate their cape with their name and superpower. You will each receive a set of white vinyl capes and marker sets. You don't need to allow a lot of time, but it would be nice for each kid to have a personalized cape. The capes need 24 hours to dry once completed. I appreciate you indulging me on this one!
And there's a cape available for all staff, too, if you want to make one.
News & Info
When you are working in your classrooms, please recognize that the custodians still have several projects to complete prior to the start of school. If you need help with something, please send an email to Steve. Also, please make sure to bring any garbage downstairs to the dumpster in the hallway by the boiler room. If you have boxes, please break them down and put them on the cart next to the dumpster. Please do not leave garbage or boxes outside of your classroom.
Please check your mailbox regularly. Mail is starting to arrive, and several of your boxes are full already. Also, mailboxes were shifted, so double check in case yours has moved.
