Fall Frolic- Rain or Shine

Many might be wondering if we will have the Fall Frolic because of the rain we had today, or the forecast for tomorrow. Yes, we will have the event, no matter what the weather. If we can be outside as planned, we will. If it rains, we'll go inside and adjust the activities. Kids will have fun either way! Join us if you can. 

Fall Frolic 2015

Here's a reminder that the Fall Frolic is just around the corner. The event will take place on Thursday, October 22, ran or shine. Students will run during revised Encore times (1st- 8:40, EC AM- 9:00, 2nd- 9:30, 3rd- 10:20, Kdg- 11:10, EC PM- 12:00, 4th- 1:25, 5th- 2:15). Besides promoting health and wellness, this is a fundraiser and we hope to raise more than $8,000! Grab your running shoes and join the fun. All families are welcome to participate!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Wednesday (October 14) from 3:00-7:30 PM and Thursday (October 15) from 8:00AM-7:30PM. There is no school for students on either Thursday or Friday. We welcome your participation in conferences and hope that you will plan to join us on these days. Look for an information letter from your child's teacher for directions about how to sign up using PTCFast.

Kindergarten Play Date

Incoming kindergarten students are encouraged to stop by the playground from 10:00-11:00 AM on Thursday, August 20. There is no formal meeting or presentation. This activity is designed to be play time, and a chance to visit school before classes actually start. Mr. Patterson and the kindergarten teachers will be available also to answer any questions you might have. 

Back-to-School/Open House

Please join us on Thursday, August 20, for our annual Back-to-School/Open House event. Class lists will be posted at 12:00 near the front entry. Our BAT parent organization will begin serving popsicles at 3:30. The school doors open at 4:00, and families are encouraged to walk the building, visit classrooms, drop off school supplies, and catch up with friends. There will be grade level presentations at 4:30 and 5:15 (the same information is repeated during both presentations) so parents with more than one child can hear the important information shared.

Lunch Time Changes- Tuesday, May 26th

We will be having our annual "5th Grade Students vs Staff" kickball game on Tuesday, May 26th. The lunch schedule will be modified to allow the game to occur during lunch/recess. Students in other grades can watch the game, or play at recess as they normally would. Modified lunch times are: 12:00-12:20-5th grade, 12:10-12:30- 4th Grade, 12:20-12:40- 3rd Grade, 12:25-12:45- Kdg, 12:30-12:50- 1st, and 12:35-12:55- 2nd. 

Field Day "is a go", Thursday 5-21-15

Despite the rain last night and the wet fields, we are still moving ahead today with Field Day. The only thing that will cause us to cancel at any point this morning would be heavy rain (we will still have Field Day if it is lightly sprinkling), and/or we experience thunder/lightning. K-2 will have games from 9:00-10:30, and 3-5 will have their activities from 10:30-12:00. We will follow the regular lunch schedule.
