September 2018 Newsletter

We appreciate our parents!

On behalf of our staff, we would like to thank you for your patience as we navigate routine changes and construction issues as we enter the homestretch before our move in December.  We are working very hard to ensure a successful and enjoyable school year for your child. We would like to encourage you to reach out to us if you have concerns and avoid posting grievances on social media.  We will do our very best to alleviate your concerns and work together for solutions.


We would like to thank our parents for working out your child’s transportation home at the end of the day and not calling the school to change on a daily basis.  Our teachers are reporting that students are calmer and more relaxed at the end of the day because they know what to expect! Miss Sally is also getting so much work done! Thank you!


This fall we are doing a soft roll out of a Positive Behavior Intervention Support plan.  We have instituted hallway, cafeteria, and voice level expectations. Our students are responding well to these expectations and our hallways have never been quieter or under control.  Our teachers and support staff are doing a phenomenal job teaching and reinforcing these rules and voice levels. A full roll out will occur during the 2019-2020 school year!


Noon to 3:00


We are happy to report that our trial run of having students go to recess first and lunch second has provided many benefits!  First, students are playing and working up an appetite. When they come in, our cafeteria staff has noticed behaviors are better and students are eating more of their lunches.  Teachers are reporting that students are returning to class in the afternoon ready to learn!


Students in grades 1 through 5 who are driven to school in the morning. MUST BE dropped off behind the building at the end of the ramp.  You will no longer be able to drop students off at the curb in the front of the building.  The reason for this is to limit traffic near the front yard where our morning recess needed to be relocated due to the loss of our playground.  If your child does not eat breakfast at school, the best time to drop them off will be between 7:35 and 7:45.  If they do eat breakfast, they may arrive at 7:20. The cost of breakfast is $1.00.  Students are to report to the cafeteria and will be instructed on where recess will be for the day. Kindergarten students MUST be dropped off in the horseshoe by door C3.  Mrs. Slavinski will be there to greet them and direct them to cafeteria.


We have instituted a new dismissal procedure in preparation for our transition to the new building.  Car riders have been waiting in the lower hallway at the back of the building. As cars come up Wilson, your child is being called out to the end of the ramp and placed in your vehicle.

Walkers have been reporting to the cafeteria at the end of the day and are released last.  The reason for this change is to ensure cars and buses have cleared the area around the school before children head home.  Once we move into the new building, the walk from our doors to the sidewalks home is greater. Our goal is to limit exposure to vehicles as little as possible.
