PLEASE HELP OUR SCHOOL!
Your child brought home a Parent Information Envelope letting you know about a safe and easy way for our school to raise funds for essential tools our students and teachers need to succeed.
The SchoolStore fundraiser is 100% online so there is NO face-to-face selling, handling money, or delivering products. Your participation will take less than 12 minutes, and there are exciting prizes to make it fun for the students.
Here is all you need to do to participate:
1. Go to https://www.schoolstore.net/cgi/SetSchool?SchoolID=0000363158&secheck=on
School ID: 0000363158
2. Send form emails inviting family, friends and co-workers to support your child.
3. Return the Envelope with the Student Prize Code to school for your child to get their fun participation prize.
Be sure to ask your child for the Parent Envelope tonight. Your participation will make a difference for our school and teachers!
McGuire Elementary School
NO early drop off until 8:35am
If you drop off after 8:50, please be sure to come into the office to sign your student in for the day before leaving. If you drop off your student to come in without an adult, we will have to call you to come back and sign them in. Unless you sign your student in at the office, the tardy or absence will not be verified which could negatively impact the attendance record, leading to truancy. Thanks!
Please label your student's items
Use a permanent marker to label your child's name on lunchboxes, school supplies, backpacks, water bottles, child's clothes (utilize the inside tags of sweatshirts, jackets, shoes, and snowpants). We will periodically check labels and post pictures of items to be claimed - check out the McGuire Facebook page.
Send an extra pair of clothes to stay in your student's locker, place in a ziplock bag or plastic grocery bag, label with their name.
autism awareness & acceptance lessons with cmu
The lessons will occur monthly beginning this past week. They have been generously funded by the Organization for Autism Research. Lessons will include specific information regarding autism, including how to be aware of the needs of peers with autism, in addition to focusing on the acceptance of differences and similarities of all students.
In addition to the formal lessons, books about children with autism will be read to each class and these books will be donated to the school libraries at the end of the academic year for students to check out and share with family members and friends.
You may check out the following link for more details about the lessons: Kit for Kids | Organization for Autism Research (researchautism.org). If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact AnnMarie Bates at email@example.com or 989-774-5899.
