Spirit Grams are back. Students can send valentines to your friends and support Student Council at the same time. Spirit grams are 50 cents each. Bring your money to school and fill out an order form in your class. Make sure that you know the full name, grade, and class of the person you are sent the spirit gram to. You may send as many as you like. This year, the candy with the valentine is Blow Pops or Airheads.
School Climate Survey
Beginning February 1, 2016 and continuing through March 18, 2016, our school will be administering school climate surveys. All parents/guardians and students second grade and higher are being invited to participate.
The purpose of this survey is to gather input about school climate and the effectiveness of teachers and administrators at our school. Reponses are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. Reports will be made available for teachers and administrators to use in their school improvement efforts. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
The survey can be found online at http://bit.ly/1O5llE2. We encourage you to complete the survey at your earliest convenience.

Winter is Here
Parents, our students will be enjoying recess outside almost everyday during the winter months. Please be sure that your students are dressed warmly including hats, gloves, scarves, mittens, etc.
If your student is missing a coat, scarf, gloves, or other winter clothing, the lost and found is in the cafeteria.
Raising Funds For our School by Shopping
PTA Fundraiser-Help increase fundraising by shopping for everyday items in a new way. When you buy General Mills or Campbell’s soup just remember to cut the labels and/or box tops off and turn them in. A portion is given back to the school. In 2014 we received $1,500 from Box Tops. Late in 2014 we introduced AmazonSmile. When you shop at Amazonsmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to our school. Just click on http://smile.amazon.com/ch/87-0546548 and support us every time you shop.
