Bake for Good: Kids Learn to Bake Share Program
Children in the fourth and fifth grades attended the Bake for Good Kids Learn to Bake Share Program on December 3rd. Our children learned the science and art of bread making. At the conclusion of the program, each child was given ingredients to make two loaves of bread at home, one to keep and one to donate. This morning, we collected over 150 loaves of bread the children had made, which will be donated to a local food pantry.
The official start of winter is just around the corner, and hat & coat weather has already arrived! Please keep in mind your child needs to be dressed appropriately for the winter weather conditions. All children will be sent out to recess for some fresh air every day, unless the temperature is below 20o Fahrenheit. Hats, mittens and snow pants are recommended. Students in grades K, 1, 2 and 3 must have snow pants and boots to play in the snow.
Lost & Found:
Our lost and found is bursting at the seams with coats, hats and many other items. We will be cleaning out our lost and found over December break. If your child is missing something, please stop in and check out the items in that have been left behind.
I would like to remind parents to send in a note to your child’s classroom teacher if your child’s end of the day plan is going to vary from their normal routine. We need notes if your child is riding a different bus home, will be in parent pick up or needs to be dismissed early from school. If you need to contact the school with any last minute change in plans, please try to contact the school by 2:00 pm. This will allow the office staff to share this information with your child’s teacher in a timely manner. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Absences or Tardies:
If your child is going to be absent or tardy from school, please contact the school by leaving a message in the school’s attendance voice mailbox by pressing 1.
