The Siple Stroll

Friday, Sep. 14th, 2:15pm

Siple Elementary Track

The 9th annual Siple Stroll will take place on Friday, September 14th from 2:15-3:00 p.m. This event is the major fundraiser for our Siple PTO. Students collect pledges for walking the track for 30 minutes. Every student that raises $50 will receive a $5 gift card. Top fundraising individuals will be awarded the following: 1st place $100, 2nd place $50, and 3rd place $25. If as a school we match last year's total of $6,100 we will celebrate with Tutu Tuesday on September 18th. On this day the staff will all wear tutus to school. If we blow away last year's total and raise $8,000 or more Mrs. Flowers will camp on the roof of Siple! Family members are welcome to join us as we participate in the Siple Stroll. Thank you for your amazing support of the Siple PTO.

Dads and Kids Pizza Night

Tuesday, Sep. 11th, 6-7pm

Siple Elementary Gym

On September 11, we will be having our annual "Dads and Kids" Pizza Night at Siple. We invite Dads (granddads, uncles, etc) to bring their Siple students to enjoy dinner for free and learn about the incredible Watch DOGS program. This is an opportunity for men to volunteer at the school to spend time with not only their own child, but have a positive impact on other students as well. You will meet in the school cafeteria at 6:00 pm for FREE pizza and drinks. At 6:30 we will have a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program. Information was sent home earlier. Please be sure to call the Siple office at 810-591-5104 to RSVP by Monday, September 11th. We hope to see you there!

Homecoming 2018

Homecoming Week is September 24-28. Siple will participate in two ways this year. First, we will have spirit days each day of the week that align with the High School's theme of Pixar Movies. These spirit days are as follows:

Monday: Inside Out Day: wear your clothes inside out

Tuesday: Be Incredible: Super Hero Day

Wednesday: Show Up!: Random Acts of Kindness Day

Thursday: Disney Day

Friday: School Spirit Day: Wear your Siple shirts or maroon and gold

Watch for a flyer for more details on Spirit Week.

Traditionally, all Davison kindergarten students walk in the Homecoming Parade. This year is no exception. Kindergarten students and their parents are invited to join their teachers and Mrs. Flowers as we walk the parade together. Kindergarten parents will receive additional information about this fun event.

Early Release Day

Wednesday, Sep. 26th, 1:45pm

Siple Elementary

The first Early Release Day of the year is Wednesday, September 26th. Students will be released two hours early that day. Our dismissal procedures will run exactly the same as any other day, but will take place two hours earlier. We will begin calling parent pick-up at 1:35 p.m. Please make sure to make arrangements for your child's early dismissal on that day.

Attention Military Families

The State of Michigan Department of Education has valuable resources available to students with a parent(s) in (any) military service IF you register with your school as a military family.

This information is voluntary, but could be a great resource for your family.
