Dr.Greene's Back-to-School Letter 2018

10/25 EARLY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES: With three dismissal times this Thursday, (Kinder = 11:40 a.m., 1st&2nd grades = 11:45, 3rd grade = 11:55), drivers should arrive in the driveway at the time for their eldest child. K-2 students going home with 3rd graders will remain indoors until the later dismissal time. Drivers will use the full length of the driveway; early arrivers will be asked to exit and return at the later time.


CELL PHONES IN THE DRIVEWAY: Drivers should cease using their cell phones during pick-up or drop-off time, when students are present on the sidewalk. We understand that some people arrive early, but once the students appear, the potential for distraction makes cell phone usage unsafe. Thank you for putting down your phones while there are children on the sidewalk!


ONLINE PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE SIGN-UP: Register for 11/19 conferences @ http://sunsetridge29.org/parents/fall_conference_registration. If you would like to schedule a conference with ALP teachers, Mrs. Brouilette and/or Dr. Pauls, please email them directly.


10/31 HALLOWEEN SCHEDULE: A letter went home in backpacks this afternoon detailing the schedule for Halloween, as well as guidelines for student costumes. A copy is also posted here. Halloween2018.pdf


SOCKTOBER & CRADLES TO CRAYONS: As part of their social studies exploration of the concept of human rights, the 3rd graders are conducting two service drives. They will collect socks for donation to a shelter as well as children’s gently used clothing, shoes, toys and books, bedding, diapers and wipes. The drives run through October 31st. www.happysocktober.com   and/or www.cradlestocrayons.org.


LUNCHES FOR THE HOMELESS: With your continued support, the Middlefork School community will once again provide lunches to the meals program at the Second Baptist Church in Evanston. Last school year we provided over 900 lunches! Our first donation includes lunches from every grade level, and the scheduled date is November 13. There are six donation dates in all, with each grade level assigned four dates. Download the attached document for specifics on this 20+ year tradition. (homeless lunch dates Note.docx)
