Cub Scout Sign Ups:
The Cub Scout sign-up meeting will be held in our cafeteria Thursday, August 27th from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. This is open to first and second graders. We hope you consider having your children join!

Before & After School Clubs:
If you need to drop your child off early so you can go to work, we have staff in Room 1 for you! It is only $1.50 per child in the morning. We also have fun activities for our students who stay in our CLUB after school! Come and check it out! The cost is $1.50 per child per hour from 2:30 - 6:00 p.m.

Physicals:
Our licensing for our preschool requires our students to have physicals. We know this may be difficult for you, so we are making it easy! Look for information next week that will explain our steps to have the physicals done at school for your convenience. We hope to offer shots for immunizations soon too! See, we are here for you and your children!

Attendance:
We know that sometimes it is easy to allow a small child to stay home from school a little more often than the bigger kids, but this sets a pattern for them. Attendance is so very important beginning at age 3 and all through high school and beyond. We dont want our kids to miss one moment of school and they learn just how important school is if it is stressed at home. Of course, you will need to keep your children home when there are fevers and other major factors, but please make school a NUMBER ONE PRIORITY in your households. We promise it will benefit your children tremendously! Attendance will be a major goal for us this year and we need your help. Also, our students need to be here before eight. We head to the classrooms at 7:55 a.m. Thanks!!
