Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:
May is here, the days are longer and the weather is getting nicer each day. The boys and girls are enjoying their time outside during lunch. Please remind your children about fair play, taking turns, and being kind to one another. Many of the disagreements on the playground occur because of miscommunication. Please make sure your children are prepared for outdoor recess with proper footwear. Flip flops and sandals are not safe when children are running in the field.
Field Day plans are in the works. Field Day is scheduled for June 8, with a rain date of June 10. All activities planned will take place outdoors. The bathroom in the fifth grade hall will be designated for adults and the bathrooms in the fourth grade hall will be designated for the children. In this way, we can monitor who comes in and out of the school so that all parties remain safe and secure. We ask that if you must enter the building, strollers and wagons remain outside. Please be reminded that Field Day is a full day of school and children should not be signed out. A schedule of events is forthcoming so that you may plan your day in advance.
May 17 is the School Budget Vote Day. Please remember to come out and vote. This year the students will be able to be a part of the process by exercising their voting power through our Democracy in Action Program. More information with be forthcoming. Voting will take place in the gym. Enter through the gym entrance via the north parking lot.
Please bring your identification as it will be checked at the door. I thank you in advance for your cooperation in these safety measures. I know that together we can make Field Day and Budget Voting safe for all.
