NOTES FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK

Greetings,

Thank you to all the parents who took time during Open House to schedule their Parent-Teacher Conferences. I appreciate the commitment you demonstrate by coming into School to learn about your child’s progress. If you haven’t signed up for your child’s conference, please contact their classroom teacher as soon as possible.

I’d like to remind families that school starts at 8:18 AM. Any child who arrives after 8:30 AM is marked tardy. No matter what the situation or time of arrival, all tardy students must check in at the office. By doing so, they will ensure that their attendance is properly recorded, that their bus notes will be honored, and that they will get a lunch of their choice. Also they will help to clear up any potential confusion, especially when Nan makes absence-related phone calls. We appreciate your cooperation with this necessary step.

If you plan on dropping off your student between 8:00 AM and 8:18 AM, please check in at the office. We do not have staff available to watch students who are dropped off early. All students who arrive early will be sent to EF for $6.00/hour.

We ask that parents dropping off preschool students escort them to the preschool door. We ask that parents dropping off students in all other grades drop them off at the front door (by the office). Once students are in the building, we expect them to make their way to classrooms independently. Also, changes to afterschool plans should be communicated by means of a note, and should not necessitate a trip to the classroom.

During school hours, the school grounds are reserved for Swift River students. Parents should not use the school grounds while school is in session, especially while students are at recess. Our students follow the rules of the playground; visiting children may not be aware of these rules. Also, parents must always sign in when visiting the building. After they have completed their stated purpose, they must sign out and leave. If a parent wishes to stay in the building after their stated purpose, they must check in at the office.

Please be sure to join us for Monster Dash this Saturday, October 28! There will be a Fun Run from 4:00 – 5:00 PM, and students can earn laps for 100 Mile Club. From 5:00 – 6:00 PM, there will be a Spooky Spaghetti Supper in the Café. Other fun activities will include the SRS Library Pumpkin Contest, a Spooky Nature Trail Walk, a Bake Sale, and a Gym Games. All proceeds will support the Fall 2018 trip to Nature’s Classroom. We hope to see you there!

Fondly,
Kelley

Mobile Dentist 

Great news! Our school has partnered with Smile Programs to offer in-school dental care with the mobile dentists on Tuesday, December 19.

Best of all, in most cases there is no cost to you if your child is insured with Medicaid or CHIP! Private insurance and affordable self-pay options are also available.

Easy and Convenient: Having your child seen by the in-school dentist saves you valuable time. Local, licensed dentists provide top-quality care in the familiar surroundings of your child’s school. Dental care includes: a complete exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants (when needed). Restorative care, such as fillings, may also be provided:

Keep Your Child Healthy: By having your child see the in-school dentist, you can help reduce the risk of:

  • Early tooth loss caused by dental decay
  • Gum disease
  • Heart disease
  • Impaired speech development

For this visit to happen we need at least 25 students to register, and we only have 3 forms back so far. To enroll your student, simply fill out a permission form and return it to the school TODAY. If you need a new form please let us know!

COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD

These announcements and events are not school-sponsored.

Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time.
