Week of August 12, 2019
Welcome Parents and Students! We hope you had a fun summer with your family. Our school theme this year is, “20/20 Vision” taken from Proverbs 29:18 - “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.” The children will learn this verse and how to apply it to their lives throughout the school year in their classrooms as well as in Chapel.
From The School Office:
Look for the School Office “Elementary Weekly Announcements”: The first two weeks of school you will receive a hard copy of the announcements in your child’s Monday folder, along with the class Monday Letter. After that, announcements will be posted on our school website and on Facebook weekly. You will also receive them via email on Monday mornings
School Office Hours: Monday – Friday 7:30am to 3:30pm
Chapels- Location & Time: Chapels will be on Wednesdays and begin at 8:35am in the South Sanctuary. Parents are welcome to attend
The office staff looks forward to serving you this new school year!
August ESLR: This month’s ESLR is LIFELONG LEARNERS! Lifelong Learners are students who develop skills and techniques to equip them for a lifetime of learning in all areas of 21st century life. (Proverbs 1:5) “A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.”
K-6th Welcome/Syllabus Letter Agreement 2019-2020: This Information and signature page is in your child’s Monday folder. Please return the “Signature Page” to your child’s teacher no later than Friday, August 16.
School Start & End Time:
School begins at 8:00am and ends at 2:45pm.
Wednesday Late Start Reminder: Begins Wednesday, August 14, 8:25am- Daycare will be supervising Elementary and Jr. High students during this morning recess (beginning at 7:30) time at no additional cost.
Please review the “Tardy/Absence” policy and Daycare Information on our school website. Times vary between regular schedule and “late start”.
Pick-Up Procedures and Homework Help: Our Elementary school day ends at 2:45pm. All Kinder & 1st grade students will be walked out to the playground by their teachers for dismissal at 2:45pm. 2nd-6th grade students who need to be picked up at 2:45pm will be dismissed to the playground and assisted by support staff in joining their parents. However, students have the option of remaining in class until 3:00pm to continue working on their homework or study on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Aside from enabling the students to have homework questions answered by their own teacher, our goal is to also help our families enjoy more quality time together in the evenings without having so much homework to complete. All students who are still on campus at 3:00pm will be checked into Daycare or dismissed to any music or S.T.E.A.M. classes they have signed up for.
