Our chocolate fundraiser began this past week.  Please remember to pay for your chocolate sales through School Day.  Additional boxes can be paid for and ordered through School Day.  It is not too late if you would like to make a contribution instead of selling chocolates, just click on the contribution tab on School Day.

Book Fair:

Our Scholastic Book Fair fundraiser is less than a week away. Students will be able to purchase books during the school day Thursday, and we will also be open Thursday evening and Friday morning during parent teacher conferences. All proceeds benefit our school library. 

The Book Fair accepts cash only. If a particular book is out of stock, your child may place an order, and it will be delivered to them here at the school within a week. 

Thank you for your continued support!   Happy Reading!

Winter Weather:
As the temperature continues to drop and the snow begins to fall, please send your child with a hat, warm gloves or mitts, a winter coat and snow pants.  Extra mitts and socks are also encouraged for the cold, wet days.   Students are outside for forty minutes at lunch, so it is very important that they are dressed appropriately.

In the event of inclement weather, Rock 95, Kool FM (107.5) or Big FM (101.1) will announce the bus/school cancellations on the radio. Please do not call the school for cancellation information.  The following are the procedures for safe arrival on “snow days”:

1. If buses are cancelled and your child takes the bus, you do not need to call the school.

2. If buses are cancelled and your child walks to school, it is at the discretion of the parent whether it is safe for your child to walk.  If your child is a walker and is not going to attend school, it is the responsibility of the parent to either call the school or complete the on-line safe arrival form and report the absence.  The safe arrival program is still in effect on snow days and it is crucial that you report your child absent if he/she is a walker.

3. If buses are cancelled in the morning, that means that they are cancelled in the afternoon as well.  Please do not drive your child to school and expect him/her to be returning home on the bus.

4.  Hot lunch and pizza days will remain in effect if the buses are cancelled.
