Recess We will go outside daily (weather/temperature permitting). Please dress your child for the weather. Toys – Please do not send any toys with your child. They may get lost or broken. Football – Please do not send footballs with your child. They get too rough for this game at recess. All school rules will be followed at recess!

Volunteers There are many ways that you can volunteer. You can come in and read with the students, cut and glue items at home, send in any needed items and/or snacks, etc. Please let your child’s teacher know if you are interested in volunteering in any way. You will need to complete a SLED background check form and we must have it back from the District Office before you may volunteer. Always get a nametag from the office. This rule is school wide and helps to keep your child safe.
There may be curriculum based projects sent home during the year. You will be notified ahead of time and given at least a week to complete the assigned project. Please work with your child on these projects. Encourage them to be creative and to do their best. Special Projects
