A SPECIAL NOTE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
Last year we sent our Valentine Cards to Valentine, Texas to get stamped with a special stamp from Valintine, Texas. I used to live and go to their Elementary School. I was part of the student council who had the privilege of stamping letters from all over the world. If you would like to get your Valentine Cards postmarked please see the link below.
Parent Resource Classes
We had a total of about 20 parents at our January 2017 meeting. We went over how children learn at this age, styles of learning, and what is appropriate to teach them at their age, state core standards, and state cutoffs. Thank you to those parents who came out. It was our pleasure to do this additional class to support our families. Most parents mentioned that they felt relieved to know that other parents are having the same questions and concerns regarding their children. We will have another one in the Summer 2017 for those parents who missed the Parent Resources Classes this winter 2017.

Parent Videos & Photos
If you are video-taping or taking pictures at our school they must be only of your child. Please do not post videos or pictures of other children as it is a violation of their privacy. If you have accidentally posted pictures or videos of other children, please remove them immediately. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
We have a nut-free policy at our school. Please keep all peanut items at home. We have children with severe allergies.
Medication and Sunscreen Policy Reminder
Just a friendly reminder that our medication policy states that we can only administer medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor. We cannot administer over the counter medication without a doctor’s note with explicit instructions on how to administer it.
Regarding sunscreen, if you would like your child’s teacher to apply sunscreen throughout the summer months, please complete the “Sunscreen Authorization Form” located in the front office. We ask that you bring your child in their own sunscreen and apply a coat of sunscreen before they come to school. All sunscreen will be applied after nap unless noted differently by a parent.
