Martin Luther King Day The reason this day is declared a holiday is for school children to be able to take the time to acknowledge the important civil rights that characterize our nation and learn the stories of heroes who worked hard to secure those rights. I encourage youto use some portion of the time off from school in a way that honors those heroes.Talk with your children about what is important to you about this day and find some participatory way to model the values Martin Luther King embodied. There are many civic events to commemorate the life and work of Martin Luther King. A few are highlighted at Martin Luther King Day events.
Please be punctual Teachers are having an unprecedented number of tardy students, which makes it difficult to start the days routine. Please anticipate winter driving conditions when you leave home with the goal of having children in their classrooms, not just the front door by 8:15. If you do arrive late, please stop at the front desk and sign in. Your child will be marked tardy if they come past the front desk later than 8:15.
We recognize that the glass door by the third grade classrooms does not always lock appropriately. Nonetheless, we ask that everyone come in past the front desk. We like to greet and welcome each member of the community each day as much as we're able.
In October we informed you that The Board requests that families make a $35 per semester or $70 annual contribution per student to cover the cost of disposable materials such as writing and math notebooks. The second portion of this fee is due on February 1st. Please fill out the attached sheet to indicate your payment arrangements, including a request for scholarship as necessary. If you paid the full amount in the fall, you need make no further contribution.
Schultuete We are proud to distribute a new issue of our school magazine highlighting some of the special projects going on at school. Click here for a link to a PDF file. You may want to pass this on to family and friends asa portrait of our school. A very special thanks to Kelly Huxmann for serving as editor and lay-out person as well as to all contributing writers and photographers.
Thank you! The technology committee consisting of Aaron Grenz, Peter Clark, Jesse Zibble, Peter Huxmann, Linda Michel, Joel Westacott and Valentin Solakhau have been working over time lately. We look forward to announcing the fruits of their labors in procuring and maintaining computers and other technology for our school.
Another hardworking committee helping us through the season of prospectve Kindergarten families touring the school consists of Julia Elias, Kim Kompel, Lisa Friedmann, Gina Vader, Chris Weimholt, Ursula Hargens and Leslie Watson. They represent us at school fairs, school tours and information sessions. Parents' stories about the school are very compelling for prospective parents. Please let us know if you're able to join this outreach group.
