So many great things....
For the Open House, please note the time for your student(s) grade level and come during that time. If you have more than one student here, please just come to one of the time slots. We have to break up our Open House this way because of our limited size both in terms of our parking lot and the size of our buildings.
After School Programs will be starting on August 22nd. We will be recruiting and registering kiddos next week. I am excited to announce that we may also be able to provide bussing for this years programming. More to come on this as well.
PTO and SAC Sign Up
Unless the group indicates another time, we will try to have our PTO meetings on the third Thursday of each month.
Now we just ask parents to remind students to wash their hands often, social distance as they can and keep kiddos home if they are sick.
If your kiddo has been exposed to covid, please call the nurse for guidelines....as they do tend to change. If you need any at-home tests, we still have plenty and they are free. Just let us know you need some and we will get them to you.
Volunteers and Lunch Monitors
We are also ALWAYS looking for volunteers to run My Times. If you have a passion that you would like to share with our kiddos, please let me know. We can get you a volunteer packet and schedule you ahead of time.
Do you have a few hours a week to come hang out with kids and get paid for it? We can always use a few extra adult eyes to keep an eye out at lunch. Call the school at 575-527-6059 if you're interested.
Cell Phone Policies (Please start preparing your students now.)
If your child does not feel well, please tell them they need to come see the nurse and she will contact you if they need to be picked up. Students should not be calling or texting parents during the day unless it is from the office with an adult present.
Cell phones can be a huge distraction at school and we need your help to address this very real problem.
