Final Walk of the Campus- 8th grade

Attention 8th grade parents and important people,

Please mark your calendars to attend the 8th grade walk on Thursday, June 2nd at 11:15 am in the Prestwick Cafe. During this special time the Leaders of our campus will process through the upper and lower learning areas as they are celebrated by our learners. They will then attend a brief presentation in the cafe as we bid them farewell. Finally there will be procession through the corridor of parents and visitors.

We encourage you to bring signs or posters with pictures of your beloved 8th graders, noise makers and dress up in your best or even embarrassing costumes. 8th graders are free to be checked out or will wait in designated areas after this event.

We are so thankful for the impact this 8th grade group has had on our campus and in our lives. They will be missed tremendously!

Summer Safety Tips from Nurse Julie Buchanan

This year has gone by so quickly I can’t believe that the Summer Break is here already.

Our children spend a lot of time outside at this time of year, so please remind them of the safety precautions they should be aware of by sharing the following information.

  • Water Safety

No running at the swimming pool.

No pushing or shoving and be extra cautious when near the deep end of the pool.

If you are on a boat or a Jet Ski, wear a life jacket at ALL times.

  • Bike and Skateboard safety

Wear a helmet at all times.

Be aware of traffic.

Make sure you are wearing reflectors, or that your bike has reflectors.

Check bike tire pressure.

  • Stranger Safety

DO NOT talk to strangers.

DO NOT go up to anyone in a car that you do not know or recognize, even if they call you by name or say they know your Mom and Dad.

  • Other Information

If you have a child who will be starting Kindergarten in August please ensure that their Immunization record is up to date.

If you have a student with a food allergy, asthma or any other condition that requires medication, please ensure that we have the appropriate forms signed by the Doctor and the necessary medication is available at school. The forms can be picked up at registration.

Have a fun and safe Summer.
