FRIDAY AFTERNOON STUDENT PICK UP

Due to Dutchfest set up behind the school, parents picking up elementary students after school tomorrow should pull in front of the elementary entrance, NOT the playground area. All students riding home on the bus will board at the high school (main) entrance. Thanks for your cooperation in helping to ensure the safety of our students.


Students staying after school Friday are not officially supervised unless assigned to a specific project. We ask that students return home after school, and then accompany their parents to Dutchfest.

SPRING BREAK-NO SCHOOL

There will be no school for students Monday, May 4th. The main office will be open from 9-3.

TEACHER APPRECIATION

Next week is National Teacher Appreciation week. Remember your student’s teacher by sending a note of encouragement and thanks.

MAY SWAP SHOP

Announcements are due to Kathy Grove, kgrove@shalomca.com by Monday, May 4th. This would be a good time to list school uniforms you would like to sell.

HOAGIE LUNCH

The annual room mother hoagie lunch this year will be Wednesday, May 27th. Please note that it needs to be preordered and it is included on the May lunch order form.
