Our Kindergarten registration will be on the 24th of March this year. We would ask those of you who have neighbors who may not have children at the school (but will have Kindergarteners next year) if you would let them know of this approaching date. We will send more specific information home closer to the registration date.
Cell Phone Policy
Our first priority is student safety. To ensure that students do not access or show other students inappropriate material that can be accessed from electronic devices, we have a policy that students are not allowed to use cell phones, tablets, electronic gaming systems, etc…before, during or after school. This policy is also in place so that students will not be distracted from learning. We recognize the need of some students to have a phone with them to contact parents on their way to and from school. Students may have these devices with them for that purpose. These devices need to be turned off and stored in their backpack while at school. If a student does have their device out at school, it will be taken away from them and stored with the teacher. The first time this happens, the device will be given back at the end of the day to the student. The second time this happens, the teacher will call the parents and they will need to come get the device from the teacher. The third time it happens, the device will be given to the Principal and he will have a Parent/Student/Admin conference to give the device back.
Please let Principal McCarty know if you have any questions or concerns.
PTA News from PTA President Rachel Luke
We are excited to announce our first Cinco de Mayo celebration to be held on May 1, (because it’s Friday). This will be a great night to gather as a school, neighborhood and with families to celebrate the end of our school year. We will have great food, games, and entertainment. Please save the date now! We are looking for families who would be willing to help with this night. Any volunteers would be welcome, and especially any ideas or input you could share. This is also the time of year where the PTA elects a new board. We are looking for a President, President-elect, treasurer and secretary. If you would be interested or know of someone you would like to nominate please let us know. You could leave your suggestion in the office or contact me or Mr. McCarty. The PTA is a great way to be involved in your child’s education and is not nearly as overwhelming as it may appear 😉 Even if you are not interested in serving on the PTA Board, please come and be a part of our meetings and add your voice and experience to help make our school even better!
Thank you to all the student and parent volunteers who helped make the Book Fair a great success this week! We love our library and Mrs. Roberts who does such a great job making sure our students have access to the best literature possible.
The next PTA meeting is Thursday, March 19, at 10:00am in the faculty room. We hope to see you there!
