Morning Drop Off Update
Please direct any changes to Mrs. Hayes:
If you are changing any of your plans with MBAC, you best contact Mr. Slaby directly, in addition, to contacting the main office.
Lost and Found
We have collected many items over the last few months. These items include, hats, gloves, coats, shoes, boots, and sweatshirts. We will have items out for display during Parent/Teacher Conferences. Any leftover items will be donated to the Kids Resale in the Spring.
ONEderful kids is a group for families who have a child with type 1 diabetes. The ONEderful kids group will be meeting on Thursday, November 21st from 6:30- 7:30 at Brainstorm in Lindenhurst. This will be the last gathering for 2019. We will start meeting again starting in January 0f 2020! If you have any questions, please contact Meghan Konicki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Reading Night
All we are asking is that you encourage your students to read, listen to a book, discuss a book, anything reading related with family members on Thursday, Nov. 21. Please sign the bookmark-anywhere on the bookmark- your child can bring it to the Media Center for a keychain prize. Students can bring their bookmarks anytime in November.
Drop Off/ Pick up Procedures
We are seeing more and more families drop off students in the morning. Please remember to be patient when waiting to drop students off. To avoid students walking between cars, do not double park in the drop off lane. If you do park in one of our parking stalls, use the crosswalk to escort yoru child to the sidewalk safely. When picking up your child, all cars MUST park in our parking lot and walk in to sign their child out. Parking a vehicle along our fire lane is prohibited. Thank you for your cooperation.
Kindergarten Lunch Helpers/ Winter Weather
We would appreciate any parent helpers to come on cold weather days around 11:15 to help our Kindergarteners get their gear on. It would only be a few moments of your time, but the more hands the better!
Literacy Grades 3rd-5th
Millburn WebStore/Outstanding Fees
The Millburn Webstore is available! Parents can now pay for activity fees, sports fees, and more! Simply go to store.millburn24.net to access the Millburn WebStore. In the Millburn Webstore, you will have the option to make payments with a credit card, bank account, or for some items, your child’s PushCoin Wallet. To add funds to your child’s PushCoin Wallet, go to www.pushcoin.com.
Please check your child’s PushCoin account weekly to view any fees your child may have incurred (e.g., lost library book, MBAC fees, lunch overages). If you have not created a PushCoin account for your child, please visit www.pushcoin.com, click "I don't have an account," and follow the prompts to set up your child's account. Once you’ve created a PushCoin account for your child(ren), you will receive monthly emails from PushCoin if your child has an outstanding fee balance. Note that low balance lunch reminders are no longer sent home with your child. However, you can set a low balance or negative balance notification through PushCoin. This will be sent to the email address you provide.
