From Mrs. Hanford

As we move into November we are noticing a quick change in the weather. Please send your child to school with a coat, gloves and a hat (boots when there is snow on the ground). As long as the temperature is 15 degrees or higher including wind chill, our students will be going outside. In order to play on areas of the playground that have not been plowed, we require boots so that students feet will be dry for the rest of the school day. Please label all items of clothing, to help us find the owner when it is lost. If you do not have any of the items listed above, please do not hesistate to reach out to our front office.

Enjoy your weekend!

A note from our Librarian

All students need digital citizenship skills to participate fully in their communities and make smart choices online and in life. Over the next few weeks in Media, we will be exploring fun characters that will teach our students about the 6 main points of being a Digital Citizen to be safe, kind and cautious online, and just how much time we should be spending online all together!

Make-up Picture Day

If you order pictures they will be in before retake on Tuesday, November 7th to know if you want retakes. Retakes will take place in the morning, so please don't be late to school as we will start photos right away.

Families who did not order before the deadline will receive a proof from the picture from October 2nd and then you can go online and purchase photos from that proof. If you don't like the photo from the proof, you can have your child participate in retake day and order photos from that photo.

Please send a water bottle and backpack with your student everyday

We have water bottle filling stations so please send your child with a water bottle everyday so they have water in the classroom. Please make sure to label the water bottle with their name.

Canned food drive

The Philo canned food drive will start this Wednesday, November 1st and go through Thursday, November 30th. Students will be able to use a Tiger ticket in trade for a can of food to donate to the drive. The class that brings in the most cans of food will receive a popcorn party. Please see the flyer below with all of the details.
