EVENTS AND NOTICES
NAMES IN CLOTHING AND GEAR
Just a Friendly Reminder
Family members, please label students backpacks, lunch boxes and coats with their names. This helps school staff members return any lost items to their owner.
THE ONLY SEPTEMBER WALKING WEDNESDAY WILL BE ON THE 11th
Normally, Walking Wednesdays are on the first Wednesday of the month. Because that would be awkward at the beginning of school year, we have pushed the date back a week to September 11th. In October we will have Walking Wednesdays every Wednesday. LINK TO ROUTES AND TIMES
COMPLETED PAPERWORK NEEDED
Families, your child should have returned home with a folder of papers to fill out and return to the school. The completed forms are vital to the function of the school. Please send them in to your student's teacher as quickly as possible.
WALKING SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM IS EXPANDING WITH STUDENT LEADERS
Only about 13% of our School's students walk or bike to school each day. We want that number to increase and we hope to accomplish this by having paid 6th, 7th and 8th-grade walking school bus leaders guide younger students to school safely. The walking school bus routes will be the same as those used for Walking Wednesdays and leaders will walk five days per week until Thanksgiving. We will also offer the program in the spring. If you are in one of these older grade students, then consider applying for a walking school bus leadership position. Those selected will earn $20/month, or $1.00 per day. You only need to lead walking to school.
Leaders will have to be very responsible, reliable, and willing to lead their walking school buses in any kind of weather.
RENAISSANCE NEEDS YOUR COMPOST!
Renaissance is ready to start taking breakfast and snack compost from your classrooms. Please bring it to the Renaissance community and dump it into the buckets at the end of the hall by 2:00 pm each day. Renaissance will compost the food waste to make nutrient-rich soil for the school gardens.
Please make sure there is no dairy or trash in the compost.
PICTURES AND REPORTS
Students in Ms. Walsh's Dreamers kindergarten classroom had some free play time followed by an activity and then snacks. Photographs were taken on Wednesday, 9-4-2019. LINK TO 27 PICTURES
Ms. Wight had her students try out a game of net and minnows. Half the class served as the net. The other half went in and out of the net as minnows. The net children counted up to pre-determined number, for example, 8, before closing their net (dropping arms) around the minnows that had yet to swim out of the net. Those trapped inside joined the net children and the game continued until most children had been caught. The brilliance of the game was that it was equally fun to be members of the net or the minnows. LINK TO 20 PICTURES
Are there any other outfit twins around our school? If so, send pictures to Mr. Craib at firstname.lastname@example.org. This picture contains Ms. Brace and Ms. LaChance
