THE TEMPERATURE’S DROPPING...and that means chillier recess days and - oh yes - SNOW! So please make sure your child comes to school prepared. It’s easy to forget when one moves from a heated house to a heated garage and car, and finally a toasty school! It also helps when your child’s name is “sharpied” inside his/her clothes. The Lost & Found is already filling up! Here are the clothing parameters for recess  play when there is snow on the ground: students with snow pants, boots, coats, hats & gloves can play anywhere there is snow (fields, grassy areas, wood chips, play equipment). Without snow pants and/or boots, students are restricted to the cleared areas of the blacktop.


LUNCHES FOR THE HOMELESS: Thank you in advance for supporting this ongoing lunch program at the First Baptist Church of Evanston. There are six donation dates in all, with each grade level assigned four dates. The next date is December 11 (1ST & 3RD grades). Download the attached document for specifics on this 20+ year tradition. (homeless lunch dates Note.docx)
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!

JUNIOR GREAT BOOKS information went home in backpacks on 12/4. The program, which takes place over weekly lunch periods during the winter months, is open to second and third graders. The PTO is also seeking parents to facilitate the literature discussion groups. Click on this link to download more information as well as a registration form.  JR Great Books Info 2018.pdf
NORTHWESTERN SETTLEMENT HOUSE: Thank you for supporting the PTO's longstanding program with this wonderful organization. If you do plan to donate, gifts are due by the end of the day on Monday, 12/10/18.
