Monthly Newsletter November 2022

Principal's Message

Happy November!


November starts the month of celebrating our families, eating too much food, gathering together and being thankful for all that we have. We have so much to be thankful for I bet our students will be thinking and writing about that soon.


As we approach the holidays I encourage you to communicate with the office and teacher when and if your child is going to be gone from school. While there is a lot going on, our students and teachers will be hard at work covering important material from now until very last day of school.


Thank you for donating to our Veteran's Military Mobility fundraiser. Our District raised $3,737.65!! Our Livingston 2nd grade raised the most for Livingston, $247.54! Their reward was the picture of myself covered in silly string. Everyone had so much fun! I think there were approximately 60 cans of empty silly string at the end of recess.


Our Veteran's Day Assembly will be at CHS on November 10th. This event is open to Veterans but not all parents. Please have your child dress nicely in red, white, and blue. I am excited to see their hard work paying off! I know that we will do our Veterans proud!


Parent Teacher Conferences are coming up, November 8th and 10th. If you are not sure of your time, please contact the office or your child's teacher. We look forward to seeing our students and their parents to discuss current progress. Your attendance is crucial for not only important information regarding your student but also our Title I funding. Each teacher will have a sign in sheet, please sign in.


Thank you to all of your hard work with your students each and every day. We appreciate you working with your students and reading every day! It is so important that students not only read but be read to. I have added a link to one of my own kiddos favorite reads. Ranger Rick!


Have a wonderful month of November and an even better start to your Holiday Season!


-Mrs. Lewis

SchoolPass-Visitor Management

Please sign in with our new school visitor sign-in/check-in app located in the vestibule. This allows you to check in quickly as a visitor, parent, contractor, and volunteer. For repeat visitors, you can use your QuickPins and for those not in the system, please bring your ID for a quick set up.

Thank you for your patience with our new safe school pass program.

Arrival and Dismissal



Students need to be outside or at breakfast in the morning.

Breakfast starts at 7:45am


Time before school is used by teachers to plan and prepare lessons and materials. Because teachers are unavailable to supervise them, we cannot allow students to be in the hallways before 8:10am, unless you have arranged tutoring.


Instructional Bell- 8:10am

If you arrive after the bell you will be marked tardy.


Tardy: The elementary schools of Park 6 take attendance twice daily. Attendance is taken first thing in the morning and afternoon. In the morning , students who are late but arrive before 8:30 are counted tardy. If they arrive after 8:30, they would be considered absent for the morning. In the afternoon, students absent longer than 20 minutes after 11:30 will be considered absent for the afternoon.

Note: Habitual tardiness is dealt with at the building level. Five (5) tardies to school equal one unexcused absence.


Dismissal Bell-3:15pm


Friday Dismissal-Early out every Friday-1:35pm


Please call the office before 2:30pm if you have a change in after school plans. This helps with getting notes to the children in a timely manner. If we don't hear from you, we will assume to continue on with regular after school plans.

Medication Reminder

When your child must take medication during school hours, you have the following choices:

  • You may come to school and give your child his/her medication at the appropriate time.

  • You may discuss an alternative schedule for the medication with your child’s doctor so it can be given outside of school hours.

  • School personnel can assist your child with the medication. For the safety of your child the following procedure must be followed for this to occur:


1. All medication must be kept in the nurse office.

2. Parent/Guardian must complete an authorization for medication administration form before any medicine is given at school. For prescription medicine, the prescribing health care provider must complete the order section of the form. Forms are available from the school office and online at www.park6.org.

3. Medication must be received in the original container and have a current expiration date. The medicine must be age appropriate and labeled for use in children.

4. Prescription medicine must be received in the original container from the pharmacy labeled with the physician’s name, the student’s name, name of the medicine, dosage and the times to be given.

5. Students are allowed to possess and self-administer medication for potentially life-threatening conditions such as asthma and severe allergies. A medication authorization form must be on file at school that contains:

- Parent/guardian verification that the student is responsible for and capable of self-administration and is authorized by the parent to self-administer.

- Healthcare provider identification of the prescribed or authorized medication and verification of the appropriateness of the student’s possession and self-administration of the medication.

Contact the school nurse for the required form.


Medication safety is extremely important . Please help us keep our students safe by following these procedures. Contact your school’s nurse if you have any questions or concerns.

Lost and Found

Please have your student check the lost and found regularly. We will be donating items bi-weekly.

We had a very special thank you to Wyoming Native, Casey Rislov! Author of the exciting Wyoming themed children's book, Rowdy Randy! We had a blast, thanks for coming!

Title I

Our first annual TRUNK or READ was a success. We had 345 people attend. We had 10 different trunks that passed out candy, bookmarks, and we even had trunks with a sandbox and puppies. Our books that were delayed have been arriving this week. We served pizza, cookies, and water. We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to our staff, families, PTK, students, volunteers, Pizza Hut, Albertsons, Walmart, and First Bank of Wyoming for making this event possible.


Please attend our monthly PTK meetings in order to learn more about Title I and all of the awesome things our school is doing. If you have any questions please call or email me at katiemccue@park6.org or 307-587-4271
