UPCOMING NO SCHOOL/EARLY OUT DAYS:
Wed, Jan. 28th-Fri, Jan. 30th: EARLY OUT DAYS Parent/Teacher Conferences
Friday, January 30th: NO KINDERGARTEN CLASSES due to all day
With Parent-Teacher Conferences fast approaching, we would like to inform you of a change in the way conference appointments will be scheduled. We are excited to offer online scheduling for this and future conferences. This method has been successfully in place in other schools and as we continue to look for more ways to use available technology and reduce our paper costs, it makes sense that we would implement this system.
Along with your child's report card, the teachers will be sending a note home this afternoon with instructions on how to access the scheduling system. As everyone will have access at the same time, we encourage you to go on and schedule your appointment(s) as soon as possible in order to secure the date and time that will work best for you and your student(s).
LOST AND FOUND:
The Lost and Found bin in the cafeteria is currently overflowing. Please take a moment during Parent/Teacher Conferences to look for items your student may have left here since our last parent/teacher conferences. Larger items will be in the main kiva and smaller items will be in the office. Any items not claimed will be donated to a charity.
Chocolate Fundraiser Information:
The PTA has moved the chocolate Fundraiser to March instead of January.
More information to come at a later time.
Thank you for your support in our fundraising efforts!
With the weather turning cold and the snow coming in, it becomes very difficult to change the information on our outside marquee. With so many other ways to get information out to
parents and students, we have determined to avoid using the marquee during the winter
months. Please refer to our school's website, magnetic calendar, newsletters, text messages,
and/or mass emails for uncoming events and important information. If you have questions
about accessing these other methods, please contact the office at 801-452-4100.
