Good evening Yolanda Families,
A quick check in to share some updates and reminders with you all.
Conferences- Please be on the lookout for information from your classroom teacher about signing up for a conference time on December 2nd or 3rd. We will be utilizing a new digital tool, "PTCfast" for the scheduling process. The links are active now, if you have any questions reach out to your teacher.
Masks- please remember to send your student to school with a face mask. We do have these available for students that forget, we are giving out about 40 masks per day. We do have some handmade masks available for students that teachers have access too, please let your teacher know your student might like one of these. They can be washed and reused as well.
Computers & Chargers- It is great to see that students are really getting in the habit of bringing their devices to school. PLEASE remind your student to charge their device at night and make sure their charger comes to school with them also.
READ-A-THON- Prizes for the event will be distributed this week. Many students will be bringing home new Yolanda ROCKS t-shirts. GIANT THANK YOU to our PTO for organizing and to YOU ALL for your incredibly generous support of our students. Remember to share your email address with PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can be added to their email list about upcoming events.
November Calendar- School will be closed November 25th & Friday 26th.
As we have time in the coming weeks to reflect on being thankful, I would like to thank you all for your support of our teachers and staff who are truly dedicated to providing the best learning and growing opportunities to your children. It is an a privilege to be part of this amazing team!
Elementary schools will be in session this Thursday, November 4th and Friday, November 5th. Middle and High schools have grading days.
Our grading and conference days will be in early December.
Our monthly Fridge calendar from the PTO has all the changes listed. You can also send your email to the PTO to get on their email list. Our reader board is updated twice monthly out front as well.
email@example.com, they would be happy to add you to the email list.

Good morning Yolanda Families,

Additionally, Thank you all for continuing to be thoughtful of our students as the enter and exit the parking lots during drop-off and pick up times. Often there is a great deal of space in between cars in the lane, this can cause a back up on the road. If possible please, minimize that gap.
PTO is inviting you all to join their email list. You can send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, then the monthly calendar and other information to keep you up to date.
