PRIDE POST

April 4-8, 2016

Update from Kim

For the remainder of the 2015-2016 school year, we anticipate heavy employee absences on the dates listed below. Historically, Kelly Services has had a difficult time filling absences with substitutes on these dates. If possible and if an event hasn’t already been scheduled, we’d appreciate any effort you might make to avoid scheduling events on these days. Also, it made huge difference in the district last year to avoid Fridays for Assessment Testing.


  • Thursday, May 5th – SPS Graduation


  • Friday, May 6th – SPS and Evangel Graduation


  • Friday, May 13th – MSU and Drury Graduation

District wide Kindergarten Roundup Registration Event for familes

A district wide Kindergarten Roundup registration event for families across the district will be held at Jeffries Elementary. The event is planned for Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 6:30 pm and should last about an hour. This event is to promote Kindergarten readiness for our 2016 incoming kindergarten students and also encourage families to get their kiddos enrolled for SPS Kindergarten and hopefully in Explore. Please include this information on your classroom newsletter to help get the word out to families.


The evening will include a presentation by Mrs. Zettl (counselor at Field) titled "Creating Independence in Your Child". Families will also have the opportunity to visit with Transportation, Nutrition Services, Before/ After School Care programs, Registration, and Explore. We will also have members of the P.A.T. staff on hand to answer questions and discuss kindergarten screenings and readiness skills. Please promote this opportunity with your families.
