We will also have a $1 Jean Day on Monday, October 3, so bring a dollar and wear jeans! I have included our 2016-2017 Tardy Policy in this week's Thursday Exchange. Be sure to take a look at it this weekend. Let's make the start of October an awesome one! Thanks for all you do!

Counselor's Corner

Did you know that September is National Good Manners month? Start a family discussion about how each member of the family demonstrates good manners and why manners are important when interacting with other!

Don't Forget!

  • It is very important that you have your hang tag hanging from your mirror and student card visible each and every time you are picking up students.
  • All visitors will be required to submit a driver's license/ state id and have it scanned in order to be admitted into our campus. Please be prepared for this when you come to the office to check in.
  • Parents please do not drop your students off until our doors open at 7:25am.

From The Registar:

Last week, those that had not completed the online paperwork received an email and/or text message. If you did not receive notification, your students paperwork HAS been completed. If you did receive this notification, and have not yet completed the paperwork, please do so as soon as possible. This paperwork can be accessed through the Parent Portal for each student that is enrolled at Life School. Because these forms contain important emergency contact information along with acknowledgement of our district policies we must have your paperwork completed immediately.

Our policy is that all enrollment paperwork must be completed and submitted within 30 days after the first day your child was in attendance. For students who started school on August 10th, the deadline for completion was September 21st. In order for your student to continue their enrollment at Life School, this completed paperwork is a requirement. If you have access to a computer please go to www.lifeschools.net, select the Parent Resources tab and click on Parent Portal. If you are an existing user, you may log in and begin the process. If you are a new user, you will need to set up an account using your student’s ID number. If you do not have your student’s ID number, please contact your registrar at judith.frazier@lifeschools.net. Once you have created a parent portal account and are logged in to the system, please go to the last tab that says “Registration” and follow the prompts to complete and submit all forms.

If you have any problems accessing the online documents please contact Judy Frazier at 469-552-9200 for support.

If you do not have access to a computer please contact your registrar to set up a date and time when you can go to the campus to complete these required online documents.

Along with the documents that should be completed in Parent Portal, we also ask you go to www.lifeschools.net and go to Food & Uniform Services, under Parent Resources, to complete the Lunch Program Application. This link will also give you access to be able to add to your students lunch account, as well as view the menu for the month.

From Our Specials Teachers:

Art: Need parent points? The art room is low on markers, colored pencils, and baby wipes! Attach the student's name and teacher name to the items so that I can make sure you get the volunteer points!
Music:Our fall QuaverNote code is now live! Here’s a special code – Back2School – you and your students can use, which will give each account 100 QuaverNotes! Below are instructions to redeem the code:
  • On the Log In window, click the “Click Here!” button next to “Have a special Quaver Code?”
  • Then enter the Quaver Code (Back2School) and click the “Enter” button.

Your students have until October 31, 2016 to enter the code, but the QuaverNotes will not expire.

PE: Next week we will start our baseball hoodie sale. Please contact Coach Stinedurf at the elementary, Coach Askew at the middle school, and Coach Robinson at the high school if you would like to order a hoodie, tee-shirt, or thermal. Prices and pictures will be out next week. Thank you Coach Stinedurf

Computer: Take charge in FaceTime. Once you've started a video call, you can move the picture-in-picture window that shows you by simply dragging it around with your finger.

Library: You find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a BOOK. -Dr. Seuss
