Thursday's Tid-Bits
For January 18, 2018

As we begin the 2nd semester of this school year, we would like to remind parents that if your child is sick we appreciate you keeping them home, however, please call the office at (660) 354-2200 to let us know why they are going to be absent.

If you want to get their homework, we would be happy to gather it up and have it ready to pick up or send it home with a sibling.

Before sending your child back to school, they must be fever free for 24 hours, with no vomiting or nausea for 24 hours and if you have taken them to the doctor, we would appreciate a copy of the doctor excuse allowing them to come back to school.

We are promoting good hand washing techniques at school for all students and our custodians are disinfecting desks, door knobs, bathrooms, water fountains, etc. If you have any questions or would like to speak to the school nurse, please don’t hesitate to call.

Grade cards were recently mailed home to parents. If you have any questions, please call the school.

Mark your calendar: Spelling Bee for 5th – 8th grader is Jan. 24th at 1:00 in the High School Gym. Everyone is invited to come watch!

We recently received a check in the amount of $440.60 from the Box Tops for Education program! We would like to thank Sabrina Banks & Emily Horner for helping out with this very valuable program. We recently purchased a projector and pull down screen for our MP Room with a portion of these funds. We also are able to purchase items teachers need in their classrooms and special activities for students that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to have without this program. Keep sending in your Box Tops - Every clip counts!
