A big thank you to our PTA and everyone who helped with our Fall Harvest Party.   Everyone had a great time!

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on November 8th from 8:00 am - 6:30 pm.    Parents will be receiving their scheduled conference time.   Communication is very important between the school/teacher and parents. Hope to see you at your child’s conference.                      

Someone Special/Grandparent Luncheon is on Wednesday, November 15th for students in grades K-3.  Invitations have been sent home. Please make you reservation by calling 254-5726 ext. 1900.   Our PTA will be holding the Scholastic Book Fair during the luncheon.  This is also our Early Out Day at 1:45 pm

We are sorry to inform your that our WINTER MUSIC PROGRM for students in grades K-6 has been cancelled this year due to an illness of our music teacher. 

Picking up and dropping off students:  PLEASE drop off/pick up on the access road.   For the safety of our students who are on the playground playing during morning or noon recess, the driveway in front of the school is closed to traffic.                

Winter Weather will be arriving very soon.   Please remember that students do go outside for morning and noon recess.  Please dress children appropriate for the weather. (jackets, hats, mittens, boots, etc.)  Please label your child’s clothing. Parents will be called and asked to bring in winter apparel for their child if they come to school unprepared.

Parents are reminded to send a note and call when their child will be transported to a different destination other than home.

The flu season is upon us.  If your child has a fever, keep your child home from school for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone. (Their fever should be gone without them having taken a fever-reducing medicine)  A fever is defined as 100 °F.  Children should feel well enough to participate in school before returning.

 Instant Alert The Chisholm District #695 will be using a web based communication system called “Instant Alert”.   Parents will be contacted by phone or option of e-mail, pagers, work numbers in case of an emergency dismissal, cancellation of school, etc. Information flyers have been sent home. Please keep phone numbers updated so you can be informed of the special announcements made by the school in Instant Alert.  We will not be sending notes home with students.
