December Notes from the Office
Our 4th Graders went to Kansas City on November 10th and toured the Kansas City Chiefs Sports Lab. They learned about nutrition and exercise to have strong bodies. Then they toured the Chiefs locker rooms and stadium. They had a fantastic time!!
Please keep checking lunch balances, and make sure that your child is returning their library books. We will be taking a look at overdue books and turning off PowerSchool access before grade cards come out for students who have overdue books.
The weather is getting very cold. Please make sure that your child has a heavy coat (not a hoodie or light jacket) everyday. If they have hats and gloves those would be great to have too. We have scheduled fire drills and if your child is not dressed appropriately and then has to stand outside, they will get cold. Or, if they ride a bus, there is the possibility of bus issues when the weather gets cold.
Please remember to call the office is your child is sick or not at school for any reason. It is VERY important that they are here on time and present as much as possible. When they miss, they are left out of vital learning conversations in the classroom. These conversations are hard to duplicate and are meaningful for learning.
Please call BEFORE 2:00 if your child's end of the day plans change. They will be sent to their "normal" drop off place if we do not get a phone call or note from you. We will not take their word for it.
November Attendance Stars
Each month, we will be celebrating those students that miss one day or less. We will be highlighting each grade level and the percentage of students that missed one day or less.
K=18 students/25 total=72% 3rd=25 students/30 total=83%
1st=26 students/30 total=87% 4th=24 students/32 total=75%
2nd=28 students/35 total=80% 5th=24 students/30 total=80%
We had a total of 145 students who were eligible for the attendance incentive drawing, out of 182 total students! That means that 80% of our students missed one day or less during the month. Keep it up!!
Our monthly attendance stars are:
K=Jaiden Walker 3rd=Jayla Perez
1st=Madison King 4th=Mason Eyler
2nd=Kylee Short 5th=Nathan Smith
These students will enjoy a slush from Casey's on us! Their names were drawn from all of the students who missed one day or less.
Thank you parents for making sure that your student is at school!
