Elementary News & Notes 10/02/2020
Welcome to October!
It is hard to believe that we have almost reached the end of 1st Quarter (next Friday, October 9). We are thankful for how God is working at school and also with the progress that we see students making. He is so good! As we continue to move forward in the school year, I want to take just a moment to remind you of some important dates and information.
SCHOOL PICTURE DAY
School pictures will be taken on Monday, October 5. 1st-4th grade will walk over to the main building for pictures. We will leave the elementary at approximately 8:15a.m. (Kindergarten will walk over the same day at 12:15p.m.) We will NOT be doing class pictures at this time. Hopefully, we will be able to do them at a later date in the school year and include them in the year book.
Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held VIRTUALLY on Thursday, October 15, from 1:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. (15-minute slots) via Zoom. This year, Fall conferences will be by REQUEST only (Parents or teachers can request a conference). If you would like to schedule a conference with your child’s teacher, please notify them by Monday, October 5. On Tuesday, October 6, we will send out scheduling emails through www.signupgenius.com. If you do not receive an email on Tuesday, it is because a conference has not been requested for your child (either by you or the teacher). If you have multiple children at the elementary campus, you will receive an invitation from each of your children’s teachers. Sign-ups are on a first-come/first-serve basis.
We have suspended most of the volunteer jobs this year due to COVID restrictions. Once IDPH restrictions are lifted, we will reinstate these positions. If we are not able to do so this year, they will be a part of our procedure again next year.
