Grandparents and Friends Lunch
PTA will host a Grandparents and Friends Lunch on Tuesday, November 24.
The lunch schedule for Tuesday will be:
First Grade: 10:15 to 10:45
Second Grade: 10:45 to 11:15
Third Grade: 11:15 to 11:45
Fifth Grade: 11:45 to 12:15
PK and K: 12:15 to 12:45
Fourth Grade: 12:45 to 1:15
Sixth Grade: 1:15 to 1:45
Students (PK-4) who don't have guests may go first in line and then taken back to a classroom to eat. This is due to space and because we will not have every guest go through the Positive Proof sign in on this date.
Grandparents and friends will be invited back to your classrooms to spend a few minutes with you so please plan something that the students can share with our guests. A picture gallery walk, a song, a game, reading stories or any other creative idea you have.
We will send out the recess schedule but it should be only one grade level outside at a time so be sure come in when the next grade is coming out.
Thank you for helping make this a great customer experience for our families!
Stranger Danger Presentations
We will have Officer Butch Lindsey with us this week for Stranger Danger presentations in the cafeteria.
Kindergarten will have their presentation on Tuesday, November 17 at 1:30 PM.
Friday, November 20 will have their presentations in the cafeteria at:
9:00 grades 5 and 6
9:30 grades PK and 2
10:00 grades 1, 3 and 4
Thank you for having a follow up conversation with your students after his presentation to reinforce What we need to remember in a situation with a stranger.
Thank you for your enthusiastic and creative participation on Friday! You did a great job helping us connect to the Five Rules of Engagement that are important for us so we can be successful. I hope you walked in the door this morning excited about something you were going to do or use with your students to get them engaged! If not, find something!
I know that when you facilitate our discussion on your chapter, you will help us learn even more strategies to help not only students from poverty, but all students!

Remember to only use a students first name and last initial in an email...to anyone, even the parents. If you get an email that has both names used, start a new email to reply and not use the original email with both names. You want to be sure you are using confidentiality expectations, especially if the sender is not.
Another confidentiality reminder....be sure you are only talking to the legal guardian of a student. If grandmother picks the student up each day and she is not the legal guardian, you are not able to talk about his day and if it was good or bad. You can't ask someone who is not the legal guardian to "tell mom he had a bad day." If you are not certain who is the legal guardian, come ask in the office and we can check the records with you!
Be sure you are traveling with your students, especially at dismissal. We need only one single file line to exit the right doors so you may need to wait with your class until it is your turn to go. Thank you for your help with this CHAMPS expectation.
If you are going to be absent, please be sure to text me before the school day begins.
