  • Walk/Roll/BusGear Up for the Walk+Roll to School Challenge!

     

    On May 4th from 8-8:30, our school is participating in the Walk+Roll to School Challenge. We’re asking every family to use active transportation like walking, biking, scooting, skating or shared transportation like the bus to improve our students’ health, learning and independence and to improve safety and traffic around our school and our impact on the environment! We have great incentives and prizes to encourage our students to participate as well as the participation of local first responders! When walking or rolling to school your child will be given a raffle ticket.

     

    If driving is your only option, you could “Park and Stride” by parking a short walk away from school, preferably the dance hall and walking with your child the rest of the way. Students who ride the bus, or park and stride will still be able to enter the raffle for prizes. If you have any questions feel free to email Corie at corie.arellano@springfield.k12.or.us
     
     
    ¡Prepárese para el desafío “caminar y rodar” a la escuela!
     

    El 4 de mayo de 8 a 8:30, nuestra escuela participará en el desafío “caminar y rodar” a la escuela. ¡Estamos pidiendo a todas las familias que usen transporte activo como caminar, andar en bicicleta, andar en patineta, patinar o transporte compartido como el autobús para mejorar la salud, el aprendizaje y la independencia de nuestros estudiantes y para mejorar la seguridad y el tráfico alrededor de nuestra escuela y nuestro impacto en el medio ambiente! ¡Tenemos grandes incentivos y premios para animar a nuestros estudiantes a participar y también la participación de nuestros bomberos y policías locales! Al caminar o rodar a la escuela, su hijo recibirá un boleto para la rifa.

    Si manejar es su única opción, puede “Estacionarse y Caminar” al estacionar a un corto paseo de la escuela, preferiblemente del salón de baile y caminar con su hijo el resto del camino. Los estudiantes que toman el autobús o se estacionan y caminan aún podrán participar en la rifa de premios. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en enviar un correo electrónico a Corie a corie.arellano@springfield.k12.or.us

  • 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 yolandaelementarypto@gmail.com 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!
    Many thanks, 

    Kari

  • Good morning Yolanda Families, 

    Here are some upcoming events to mark on your calendar:

    Friday, October 8th (Tomorrow) Early Release at 12:30

    Wednesday, October 20th Picture Day- Life Touch. Packets will be coming home this week. 

    Friday, October 22nd Early Release at 12:30

    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 yolandaelementarypto@gmail.com, then the monthly calendar and other information to keep you up to date. 

    Many thanks, 

    Kari Isham 

    Yolanda Principal
