Spring is in the air (even though it’s still winter), so remember to spring forward an hour on Sunday.
The warmer weather is appreciated not just by our students, but by those pesky head lice. Please remember to check your child’s hair often, and inform the office right away of any signs. We can also lower our rates of transmission by reminding our students not to share hats or backpacks (they could be on the straps), and remember to keep our hands, feet and hair to ourselves. We will continue to remind them here at school – if they hear it at home, all the better.
Traffic seems to be getting worse every month. Our best advice for making sure you arrive safely and on time to school is to leave early. Most of us are rushed and overwhelmed in the morning, but setting aside extra time for the inevitable traffic is a good habit to have.
Spring also means spring cleaning – so take a good look at our vast collection of lost jackets, sweaters and other fine items of clothing. At the end of March we will donate what's left, so take a look today!
Great American Spell Check
The Great American Spellcheck will be happening one week from today on Friday, March 17th! We hope that the students have been successful so far in collecting pledges from family and friends for the words they spell correctly on the spellcheck test. Remember, 100 % of the money raised for this fund-raiser goes directly into our school programs!
Our students have one more week to collect pledges and study for the test. All pledge forms need to be returned to the teachers by the test day - Friday, March 17th. Once the test is over, the graded tests and pledge forms will go back home so the funds can be collected (donations due by April 5th).
On Friday, April 7th we will be announcing the following awards:
