Aussie End of the Year Celebration/Cookout:
On Wednesday, May 24th (the last day of school), we will be having our Aussie end of the year performance, cookout and Aussie center rotations. The Aussie performance is at 9:00 in the cafeteria (this is open to all family members, but they must be registered and an approved volunteer). Your child will need to wear their green Wards Creek t-shirt. After the performance, our volunteers will start getting our centers set up. We will then head out to the PE court to enjoy the Aussie centers and enjoy our Aussie BBQ. The Aussie centers/cookout is for our K students and volunteers only. This is their time to celebrate their achievement! Thank you for your understanding!
In the fall, we will be unveiling our adult library section. If you are a parent of a Wards Creek student, you will have access to this fantastic new resource! This will be created solely through donations. If you have any gently used books appropriate for young adults or older, please feel free to send it to the media center. More information regarding this new addition will be given out in the fall, after we have it all finished. Thank you for your support of this new adventure!
Box tops can be sent in a ziploc or in your child’s money pouch in their black FORCE folder. Box tops will be due by the 15th of each month. Thank you for supporting our school!
Our scheduled lunch time is 12:08 – 12:38. The cafeteria menu will be posted each month. Kindergarteners will be allowed to purchase ice cream every Friday. Ice cream is $1.00. They also will be allowed to purchase one additional item with their lunch. Please send in lunch money enclosed in an envelope. If you have any questions/restrictions, please e-mail our cafeteria manager Jeannie Gray.
We will have a snack every morning at 10:20. Please pack your child a healthy snack–no candy please.
If you plan to volunteer, chaperone, attend classroom activities/performances or have lunch with your child, you must be an approved volunteer. Please complete the Student Access Form listed on the top left of my webpage and on our Wards Creek home page. All volunteers must sign in at the front office and show photo identification. Thank you for understanding and keeping our school safe!
Please check out the PTO website for important information!
Comfort for Canines:
We will soon start to collect for our Kindergarten community service project! We will be helping our local animal shelters by collecting used blankets, towels, fleece throws, pet beds and baby blankets. The animal shelters will use them to cushion the crate/kennel bottoms and to keep the animals dry.
We are proud to be a Leader in Me School!
