MESSAGE FROM THE NURSE DEB HAMMETT:  BMI (Height and Weight) measurements will begin next week for Kindergarten – 2nd grades & 4th, 6th, 8th and 10th grade students.  In order to be excused from this mandatory screening students must bring a note from their parent or guardian to the office.


COAT RACK:  Our coat rack is completely full. Please check the lost and found coat rack for your child’s things; there are coats, sweaters, sweatshirts…all colors, shapes and sizes!! Please Help!!! We will send to the Care Center at the end of school.


HANDBOOK POLICY & REMINDER CONCERNING ABSENCESYou need to inform your child’s teacher or let the office know if your child will be absent more than a day or 2… You should call and request daily homework which should be picked up and taken home as soon as possible to help them stay caught up.  If you take them to the Dr. remember the Dr. statement must be turned in to the office within 5 days for it to be counted as an excuse….this is one of the new handbook policies and is being enforced.  Also remember that you only get 2 parent notes per semester. If you send a parent note that lists 2 days on it then you have used both of your parent notes for this semester and no other notes from home will count as an excused absence.

DR. SEUSS CHARACTER DAY:  The elementary students will have a Dr. Seuss Character Dress Up Day once again this year!!  On March 2nd you can send your child to school dressed up as their favorite Seuss character!!  We will be judging the costumes throughout the morning and will announce the winners before lunch!  There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for both the K-2 hallway and the 3-5 hallway.  I hope to see lots of whozits, whatzits, and everything in between!! Thank you in advance for participating!   Mrs. Ketchum
