This is Ms. Gleason with this week’s deets. I have 4 things to share.
First of all, earlier this year I reminded everyone that our campus does not open until 7:15 am. There are a (very) few staff members who are here before 7:15, but they are not available to supervise children and therefore, any children left before 7:15 are here with no one to watch out for their safety. I just want to thank everyone for changing habits and schedules. We've seen a great improvement in the number of kids here before 7:15 each day.
Secondly, our parent club’s annual Cookie Dough and Believe Catalog sales have officially kicked off. Sales continue until September 27th. Remember that this is our school’s main fundraiser and that besides prizes and trinkets, students are working to sell 8 items so they can silly string me and a few brave teachers again this year.
Third, our Cross Country team is all set for a great half-season. All paperwork was due last Friday, and Mr. K reports that we have about 50 students on the team. Practice starts this week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school. Students should meet at the snack tables. Parents can attend the practice, but we do ask that you park in a parking spot and not leave your vehicle in the pick up loop during practice.
Finally, our PTO would like to promote their Facebook page. Follow and like them at Shasta Meadows PTO. When they reach 100 followers, they will be giving away a Tiger T shirt, the more followers, the more prizes given.
Have a great afternoon!
