After School Pickup Procedure: We will begin a new pick up procedure at the end of the day. 

1. Parents who walk down the alley to pick up their children at the end of the day will now wait for their children at the Charleville gate entrance. This change is necessary for the safety of all. The alley needs to remain clear for the cars. Also there are too many parents congregating at the alley gate and making it difficult for the smooth flow of traffic.

2. Parents who drive are reminded to display their school bus tag so we can get the children into your car as quickly as possible. When you are waiting in line on McCarty, please do not block the apartment driveways.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Tuesday: October 4th will be the next parent club meeting in O’Ryan hall. Parents who attend will receive volunteer hours.

Wednesday: October 5th will be the first parent Parent Educational Workshop. It will be in O’Ryan hall from 6:00-7:30pm. Kim Hartley, director of the Buddy System, will be presenting Parent as an Advocate: A Hand-on Guide for a Proactive Parent. She will discuss:

  1. How to tailor school to your child’s unique needs
  2. Draw correlations between your child’s grades and study habits
  3. Help your child draw positive habits that will last throughout his/her school years

Childcare and refreshments will be provided.
