Dear Neighborhood School Families,

All families must complete a Lunch Form application.  This information determines our school’s eligibility for additional funding.  All families have received a hard copy, but you can complete it online at https://www.myschoolapps.com. You will need your child’s birth date, but it is NOT required to enter the school ID number. You can also get a form from Gladys in the office.  One lunch form per family.  Thank you!

Once again I will host a series of informal gatherings for families each month to discuss topics of interest to our community this year - so please email your suggestions!  The first “Morning Hour” will be Thursday, October 12th in the PTA Room right after drop off.  We will discuss progressive education and in preparation, I encourage you to read Alfie Kohn’s article, Progressive Education: Why It’s Hard to Beat, But Also Hard to Find.  We usually begin each year with this article; I think it is a good starting point for future conversations.

Mark Your Calendars:

  • Today is Picture Day!   Say cheese!  The picture time of your child’s class will be posted outside of their classroom. Lorraine, PTA Events officer, is looking for a few volunteers to help keep the classes flowing… email Lhutra@gmail.com if you can help.

  • The PTA Exec Meeting is Wednesday at drop-off in the PTA Room.  All are welcome.

  • There is a breakfast for the class parent representatives on Friday morning in the PTA Room.  The purpose is to outline responsibilities, to identify whom you can go to for help, and to share relevant tips + ideas and concerns.

Warmly,

Dyanthe
