*No Unicycling on November 23 & 24*

 

There will be no unicycling practice on Tuesday, November 23rd and Wednesday, November 24th. Mr. Lancaster has an obstacle course set up in the gym on those days for PE, so there will not be enough room for unicycling. Regular practice will resume after the Thanksgiving Holiday.

  • November 24 -Half-day Release @ 11:45/ Parent Conferences
  • November 25, 26 -No school, Thanksgiving Holiday

Come on by the drive- through to receive a cozy, holiday drink mix! PTA will be handing out "Snowman Soup" or apple cider mix for families to take home and warm up. Come see us, we'd love to say "Hi!"

 

 

December 9 ~ PTA MOD Pizza Fundraiser

Put it on your calendar to take your family to MOD Pizza for dinner on December 9th! Tell the cashier that you're with Green Mountain, and 20% will go back to our school! We hope to see you there!

 

 

 

With winter upon us, we have been fortunate to receive a donation of winter coats for elementary students. if you feel your child would benefit from one of these warm coats, please contact the office.

 

 

Test to Stay Reminder

~ Helpful Reminders ~

 

 

Lunch Utensils

Please make sure your student has proper utensils packed with their home lunch. The school kitchen's ability to provide extra utensils is very limited. Your help with this is appreciated.

 

Please Come To School On Time

We know that regular attendance has a positive impact on academic performance. When your child is often tardy, it can hurt his/her learning in school. Children who are tardy do not hear important directions and announcements made at the beginning of the school day and are not ready to learn. When this occurs over and over again, it can impact your child’s success in school. We appreciate your cooperation with this.

 

 

Classroom Party Treats

To help keep our students safe and healthy, class party snacks must be approved ahead of time by the classroom teacher. Additionally, these items must be purchased from a store, individually pre-wrapped. For example, items such as multi-pack cookies or cupcakes are not individually wrapped. Thank you for your help with this.

 

 

After School Transportation Notes

If you need to make a change to your child's after school transportation plan for the day, please call to let us know as soon as possible, and no later than 3:05 pm, or 1:35 pm on early-release Thursdays. This will allow us to deliver these important notes to students in time and before busses leave the campus.
