Race for education prizes

Once again, we would like to thank everyone for their support in making the Race for Education a big success again this year.

Students who earned homework passes, soft pretzels, and treasure box prizes will receive those rewards soon. We will inform you of specific dates as they approach.

Fall Conferences

Conferences are next week, and our goal is 100% participation. Fall conferences will be scheduled online again this year via Sign Up Genius. Please see the attached letter about scheduling a conference with your child's teacher(s).

BOOK FAIR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Sabold Book Fair will be held Monday, November 27 through Friday, December 1. We will need volunteers to set-up, assist during shopping times, and break down the fair. Please consider volunteering an hour or two of your time (Each class's book-shopping time will be on the flyer coming home with them today.). The students love to see their parents at school!

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER!

Cold weather is on its way, whether we like it or not. We try to have students go out for recess whenever possible. We use the Child Care Weather Watch chart to help us determine when and how much time is considered "safe" to be outside on cold days.

Please be sure children are dressed appropriately for the weather. Even if we are not going out for recess, children should be dressed appropriately for walking home, waiting at the bus stop, emergencies that would cause us to leave the building, etc.

gROWTH MINDSET- November

We talk a lot about having a "growth mindset" in school. Having a growth mindset is really built on the premise that our attitude and focus should always be on improvement. Whether we our first, last, the best, struggling, our mindset doesn't have to change. Our focus is always to get better.

The elementary schools in Springfield would like to share some of the "Growth Mindset" information with parents throughout the year. Take a minute to read the information on how a growth mindset can help us as educators and parents.

REPORTING ABSENCES

If you would like to report an absence via email, please send the email to sabold.hotline@ssdcougars.org – there is a period between “sabold” and “hotline” in the email address.

Additionally, there is a link to submit attendance on the school website. If you go to Sabold’s page, use your mouse to hover over “Parents” in the upper right-hand corner. Select “Attendance” from the dropdown list. In the middle of the page you will find a link to submit an email to saboldattendance@ssdcougars.org. An added bonus to the hotline email is that it will serve as written notice of your child’s absence. You will not need to send an additional note to school so that the absence will be marked as excused. We will retain the email as your absence note.
