On Friday, October 27th, we will be going on a field trip to the Sykes & Cooper Farm. We will be doing various activities–going through the corn maze, visiting farm animals, taking a hay ride and jumping on the “corn popper’! The cost of the field trip is $10 (exact cash/check made out to Wards Creek Elementary). The payment and completed forms are due back by Friday, October 21st.
On the day of the field trip, please have your child wear their green Wards Creek shirt and closed toe shoes. Please apply sunscreen prior to them coming to school. If you are bringing a lunch from home, please pack it in a large ziploc bag with your child’s name labeled on it. We cannot have lunchboxes/containers due to space limitations in the cooler.
On October 31st, we will have our annual Literacy Parade. Your child is welcome to bring in their favorite book and come dressed as a book character. We will have a school-wide parade showcasing our favorite books and characters! Please be sure your child can independently use the restroom in their costume and that it meets our dress code requirements.
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 12:00 – 12:30. Kindergarten is allowed to buy 1 extra per day and ice cream on Friday only.
We will have a snack every morning at 10:00. 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!
