Please remember if you need to change the way your child goes home, please send a note in your child’s red folder. We will send the note to the office. Thanks for helping us keep your child safe!
Volunteers/visitors at our school
PLEASE remember that ANY visitor to our school during normal hours MUST be an approved volunteer to enter the building. Please make sure you bring an I.D. You can always call Ms. Stewart(our fabulous front desk clerk) at 547-8730 to see if you are currently approved.Thanks so much for your cooperation:)
Kindergartners are allowed to buy 1 extra in addition to their lunch daily. On Fridays, they may purchase ice cream. Please make sure your child has money in their account if they want to buy extras. If you do NOT want them to buy extras or ice cream, please send an email to our cafeteria manager Gina Gray. Ice cream is $1.00 this year:) Please note that lunch prices for 2015-16 are $2.55 for lunch and $1.25 for breakfast.
7 Habits for Healthy Children
View this video to find out more about our 7 habits book study this year.
Character Counts is a district-wide character program and we embrace the value of that program as the foundation for building good character in all of us! The Leader in Me is a framework for us to help students build habits of good character.
Please clip and save box tops! They earn money for our school:)
We have lunch daily at 12:17 pm. We would like to have a small snack in the morning. Please send 20 healthy individually wrapped snacks a month. Please mark the outside of the bag with your child’s name so I can check them off monthly. The children seem to enjoy pretzels, baked chips, cheez-its, goldfish and granola bars.
BOOK IN THE BAG
We have begun our” book in the bag” program. This program is geared to your child’s reading level. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me.
Resources at Wards Creek
Our resources this year are art, music, p.e., computer lab,health and media. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the school day. On p.e. days, please make sure they have tennis shoes on. They are also welcome to bring a sport-spout water bottle everyday. We will use it during daily recess/snack time.
