Safety Patrol

Morning Safety Patrol is a great way for our fifth graders to practice leadership. If a student would like to participate in Safety Patrol, they must complete the application. We’ve discussed the fact that Safety Patrol is like a job and carries with it certain responsibilities. Applications went home this week and are due by Thursday, August 22nd. Safety Patrol assignments will be given out on Friday, August 23rd, and Safety Patrol duties will begin on Monday, August 26th. Students are to report by 7:45 a.m. on their assigned day.

Seeking Fresh Air

Please remind your child to wear deodorant each day. They are also welcome to keep deodorant (not aerosol) in their backpack or locker. We begin our days with PE and we have recess at noon, in the heat of the day. Thank you for your help!
