Pow Wow Information

Pow Wow Books
The books are at the printer but will not be ready until tomorrow afternoon so they will go home Tuesday with each student.
Paint a Ceiling Tile to be in the Art Room Forever* (*well as long we can predict:)
If you already purchased an art tile for your child to paint at the festival you should have received an email this weekend with a link to sign up for a time-slot on a google doc.  If you purchased a tile already and did not receive this email please let the front office know.
If you meant to purchase a ceiling tile but forgot there are still a few left.  Please complete the form in the Pow Wow Packet and send in along with a check for $25 on Monday and we will email you out a link to sign up for your child's time to paint on Saturday.
Festival Game Tickets on Sale 
Save money (get 5 for $1 versus 4 for $1 day of festival) and avoid waiting in line.  You can send in the form from the Pow Wow packet with your check on Monday and tickets will be sent home in your child's Wednesday folder or you can send in money with your child to purchase ticket in the cafeteria Tuesday - Thursday from 8-8:30am.  Submitting a form and check are recommended as we cannot be responsible for tickets lost and this seems to be the safest way to be sure tickets get home.

New Birthday Celebration Procedure!

There is a new Birthday Celebration procedure adjustment that we were informed of last week that I wanted to make you all aware of. Birthday Celebrations will now be held inside the classroom instead of in the cafeteria during lunch time. While we do not have food allergies in our classroom this year, there are other classes throughout the building that do and keeping the celebration treats contained in the classroom is the best way to help food allergies. So as a grade level, fourth grade decided to have the celebration time immediately following lunch. This means as soon as lunch time is over when the students return to the classroom they will be able to have their celebration treats. As always if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this or anything else please let me know!!

Thanksgiving Lunch Information

                                 Important Thanksgiving Lunch Information
We know many of you are looking forward to joining us for Thanksgiving Lunch on Friday, November 11, so we wanted to list some notes to hopefully make the day run more smoothly.   

Parking is ALWAYS an issue, but if you are comfortable parking on the grass, that is fine.We will also plan to have the access gate open on the side of the building near the K-2 playground for parking. 

Notes will be given out as reminders for those that may not receive these E-mails, but for reasons of safety, we respectfully ask that you not leave the cafeteria area with your child until his/her teacher arrives to pick up the class.The entire class will travel together to the Book Fair for approximately 15 minutes after lunch, and you are welcome to go with your child then if you would like.If it is time for your child’s class to leave the Library, and you are still in line, your child may return with the class.If you choose to have your child remain with you, then we ask that you escort your child back to the classroom before leaving the building.With over 1,000 people in the building, we trust you understand why we don’t want children to be unattended.

Five tables will be set up in the cafeteria, and three will be set up in the gym.As our enrollment has grown, this has become necessary to accommodate the visitors and students.Also, the newer tables in the cafeteria have seats that are very close together.No matter if you are in the cafeteria or the gym, the whole focus is on you being with your child. 

Signs will be posted with table assignments, and they are pasted below as well so that you can know before you arrive and share with others that may be coming where to look.Again, signs will be on the tables and people here to help direct as well.

Please Note: Our class table assignment is Cafeteria Table 2 and our lunch time is scheduled to begin at 11:40!
