Updates and Information
REMINDER for Volunteers and Chaperones
You must complete a new iChat form EVERY school year to volunteer at school or chaperone a field trip. Thank you!!
As we head further into fall and our mornings get darker, I want to remind all of our drop off parents to be mindful of our student walkers and bikers as you drive in in the mornings. And to our families who have walkers and bike riders, please help remind your child to use caution as h/she heads to school. Reflectors on bikes and clothing would be a great benefit!
Fall Book Fair - November 8 - November 17
All students will have the opportunity to visit with their class during the school day. The book fair will also be open for both Parent/Teacher Conference nights and our Y5- 5 Family Literacy Night!
You can set up an e-wallet for your child's purchases using this link: E-Wallet
Thank you to all who have signed up to help with the book fair! There are still a couple slots available if you are interested: Volunteers
Attendance Protocol Reminder
As we head into the end of our first trimester, I'd like to take a minute to remind everyone about the importance of being in school and on time each day.
From our school handbook:
Quality education is the primary goal of the Chelsea School District. Regular attendance is a vital part of attaining this goal. Students are required to be at school and in class on time. Students arriving after 8:00 AM will be considered tardy.
Students should not be dropped off prior to 7:40 AM as there is no adult supervision until then. After school, students should be picked up by 3:00 PM.
The office will send letters to parents after ten (10) absences and/or multiple, excessive tardies per trimester. (A tardy due to late buses is excused.) Prolonged illness or other extenuating circumstances, cleared through the principal’s office, will serve as the exception to this rule. After 5 consecutive days of a medical absence, a doctor’s note may be required upon return to school.
NEXT WEEK is FAMILY FUN NIGHT!!!!
Congrats to this week's students!!
4th Grade: Miles C., Sophia M., Abby T.
5th Grade: Madison C., Felix G., Adaline K.
