Welcome to our first full week of school! Here are some reminders and some new information for this week:

Last Friday, you should have received an email with the Lions’ Den (grades 5-8) discipline plan. Please print, sign, and return all the pages that need to be signed. If you cannot print, please email me and let me know. I also sent home my classroom packet. It too needs to be signed and returned. This went home in paper form with the kids in their take-home folders. All papers need to be returned by Wednesday. An email also went out last week asking for snacks and letting you know about PE uniforms. Students should wear last year’s or bring clothes to change into on Wednesday and Friday this week. PE orders are due within the next week. Also, don’t forget that Back to School Night for K-8 is Thursday and grades 6-8 is Wednesday. Mr. Humberd will come to talk to the students on Thursday about joining band. Mrs. Langferman emailed about choir last week. If you did not email back about your student joining choir, please do so ASAP. Students need a permission slip. They receive that once you email. .
