Book Fair Time! Open November 7 – 11

Book Fair

Stop by the Scholastic Book Fair for books your student will treasure! The Book Fair will be open Monday, November 7th – Friday, November 11th from 8:15 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Students are also able to shop during their library time during the week. Or shop online!

SUCKER PULL

We will once again have the student loved sucker pull.  For a quarter, the students can pull a sucker and have the opportunity to win a prize depending on the color that the end of the stick may be.  The prize may be just the sucker, it may be a treat, small prize, a book, or even more!

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT

If you are not able to make it to the Book Fair with your child or you would rather not send money in with him/her, you can always shop our Book Fair online.  If you order online, there will be no shipping added and the books will be shipped to the julietta in canada school.  Ms. Mackorell will deliver online orders to students as they’re in… typically the week or two after the book fair.

The SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR APP!  Scholastic has a cool app that is free and available for both Apple and Droid phones. You can use it to scan a book to get the AR level (if it has been leveled & has a test available), the price, and much more.  You don’t have to wonder if a book would be good for a particular age child or if it’s a child’s given AR level- just use the app!

Thanksgiving Lunch Details, Times and Menu

Important Notes for Friday, November 11

  • Parking is always an issue, but if you are comfortable parking on the grass, that is fine. We will also plan to have the access gate open on the side of the building near the K-2 playground for parking.
  • Please do not leave the cafeteria area with your child until his/her teacher arrives to pick up the class. The entire class will travel together to the Book Fair for approximately 15 minutes after lunch, and you are welcome to go with your child then if you would like. If it is time for your child’s class to leave the Library, and you are still in line, your child may return with the class. If you choose to have your child remain with you, then we ask that you escort your child back to the classroom before leaving the building. With over 1,000 people in the building, we trust you understand why we don’t want children to be unattended.
  • Five tables will be set up in the cafeteria, and three will be set up in the gym. As our enrollment has grown, this has become necessary to accommodate the visitors and students. Also, the newer tables in the cafeteria have seats that are very close together. No matter if you are in the cafeteria or the gym, the whole focus is on you being with your child.
  • Signs will be posted with table assignments, and they are pasted below as well so that you can know before you arrive and share with others that may be coming where to look. Again, signs will be on the tables and people here to help direct as well.
  • All visitors must sign in at the table in front of the office.

We know this is a special day for families, and we want it to be as fun and safe as possible.  Thank you for such wonderful support, and we hope your families are enjoying time together.

NASHVILLE—Tennessee Education Commissioner Candice McQueen announced significant changes to state

assessments today that respond to feedback from educators, parents, and students—including eliminating Part

I in all subjects, restructuring the test to better fit within the school day and year, and reducing overall testing

time. The changes come as the department finalizes its contract with Questar, the primary vendor for the 2016-

17 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP). Read More

Kindergarten Phase-in Week

The first week of school for kindergarteners will be a phase-in week where students will attend TWICE to allow for small groups to learn and to feel comfortable as they adjust to routines.
 
Please see the below schedule to determine the dates your child will attend during that week to assist you in your planning.  These days will be full days at school (8:30am – 3:30pm).  Students who arrive prior to 8:15 will wait in the gym until the bell rings for them to go to their class.  Adults will be in there to supervise, and for the phase-in week, you may wait in the gym with your child if you would like.  Please note that assignments to specific teachers will not be made until after the New Student Registration on July 27, so please be patient as you wait to hear from your child’s teacher before August 01.  We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school family.
 
Monday, August 8th: last names A-I
Tuesday, August 9th: last names J-Q
Wednesday, August 10th: last names R-Z
 
Thursday, August 11th: last names A-L
Friday, August 12th: last names M-Z
The following Monday, August 15, ALL Kindergarteners will begin school full-time.
