Thank you for reading our weekly Smore newsletter!

Important Notes

-Please be on time to school. We are having way too many tardies every morning. Dropoff begins at 7:15, then traffic is much lighter between 7:20 and 7:35. The tardy bell rings at 7:45.

-As per federal guidelines, we do not allow cupcakes or other freshly-baked goods to be sent/brought to a class. Only pre-packaged, single-serving snacks are allowed.

-Do you know the cute stuffed animal slap bracelets that students are earning when their parents complete a form and turn it in to the library? Please keep those animal slap bracelets at home. :-) We are having a large number of problems with them and they are causing distractions in many instances.

Please think of the safety of the children (and the adults in carpool) and keep your cell phones put away during carpool times.

It’s time for our Kids Heart Challenge! Students turn in all money (cash only) to PE through the whole month of February. If you score over $100 you get to PIE Coach Barnett or Coach Robinson in the face at the end of the fundraiser. The teachers sent home the information for the online app, which can also be used for donations. Money can be turned in online through the app.

Is your child missing a jacket, lunch kit, eye glasses, etc? Well they may be in the Lost and Found bin. More items have been added since this photo was taken.

The window for students to apply to a magnet school is still open!

Please consider a magnet school for your 5th grader as you consider which school would be the best fit for them next year.
