Newsletter - BITS & PIECES


Stamp Club:  The first meeting for Stamp Club will take place next Monday, September 20, from 3:30-4:15 pm. 

MAP Testing:  Students in grades 1-8 will be doing MAP testing through next week.  Please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before coming to school.

Teets & Buns Cinnamon Rolls Fundraiser: Orders need to be turned in by September 24. 

Excused Absences:  If your child was absent, he or she will be marked as absent unexcused unless a note or email regarding illness or death in the family is sent into the office. 

Early Dismissals:  Just a reminder that when we close early because of bad weather, we will not have After School Care.

Lunch Orders: Today a lunch order form was sent home with your child.  If you would like to order a lunch or lunches for your child, please be sure to return the order form completed along with exact cash payment by Monday morning.

Lego Club:  The hours for Lego Club are 3:30-4:15 pm instead of ending at 4:00 pm because of the 3:15 dismissal time.  The first club meeting will be on Monday, September 27. The October Club date may need to be cancelled due to Mrs. Boggess having potential jury duty. 

Blessings Program:  It is time to start planning your child’s costume for the Parade of the Nations that will take place during the Blessings Program on Saturday, October 2.  Please have your child at the Martinsburg SDA church by 10:45 am.  Students will be wearing black masks that will be provided by the school.  Parents and adults may use their own discretion on wearing masks.  As a standard policy this is a required school event and student grades can be affected by non-attendance. 

Indigenous People Day:  School will be closed on Monday, October 11, for Indigenous People Day. Enjoy your three-day weekend.

Picture Day:  On Tuesday, October 12, individual pictures will be taken for those that missed getting theirs taken today along with any retakes that need to be done.  If you decide that you don’t like your child’s pictures and want to do a retake, then you would need to return the entire picture packet to the school by the morning of October 12. Classroom composite pictures will be available to purchase instead of a classroom group picture, like we did last year.          

Laughter is the Best Medicine: Q: What dies but never lives?  A: A battery.
