This is an event to help earn money to purchase new books for the library and support the increasing needs of our students as they work to achieve their reading goals. The Parent Council will be selling popcorn for $1.00 at the end of the day in front of the school. ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE GIVEN TO THE LIBRARY. Exact change is greatly appreciated. We need volunteers to help pop during the school day! This is one way to get in your volunteer hours.
We'd like to welcome everyone back to school with a RockstarStomp!
We invite you to bring your family, come enjoy some Back to School fun! We will have a DJ, so be ready for some fun, dancing and socializing with your friends! Any questions, please e-mail parent council at email@example.com.
Our Back-to-School Night dates/times are as follows (it is "open house"[visit with all of your children's teachers in one night] format, so show up whichever night is best for you). [Parents desiring to rent musical instruments will need to come on Wednesday night.]
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19TH FROM 5:00 - 7:30 PM
THURSDAY, AUGUST 20TH FROM 4:30 - 6:30 PM
During Back-to-School night you will have the opportunity to meet your teachers and tour the building. Students in grades 4-9 may also locate their lockers and test out their locker combinations.
In order to keep everyone informed we have a short parent meeting scheduled in the middle of each night. We want to discuss our expectations for dress code and learning during the year.
The first day of school for grades 1-9 is Monday, August 24th and Kindergarten will begin on Friday, August 28th. If you haven't completed your child's Online Fall Registration packet please be sure to do so this week.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY - THURSDAY, AUGUST 20TH
Each family is expected to put in 40 hours of service during the year. Some people do not know how to fulfill that responsibility. During Back-to-School night our Parent Council will be manning a sign-up table in the lobby with a WIDE variety of opportunities for service. Select something that appeals to you and fits with your schedule.
The first opportunity for service will be Thursday, August 20th, right after the Back-to-School activity, helping to clean the grounds in preparation for school to begin on Monday and re-working and adding wood chips to the playground area. If you are able, please bring shovels, rakes, and wheelbarrows. (We could use about 30-40 people.)
This will be our biggest sale ever! Many books are too worn out to circulate, many are duplicates that we just can't use, adult books as well as books that are not being added to our library collection. Some are LIKE NEW! Prices are dirt cheap! Cash and Check only!
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT is a great time to turn in your summer reading log. Bring it to Mrs. Ballard in the library and choose your prize.
