Good Evening students and parents!
This is Lauryn Duncan, Principal at Douglass Elementary School with a few announcements for the week.
Doors will again open for all students this week at 7:20am and they may report directly to their classroom. Students wishing to eat breakfast in our cafeteria will do so before heading to their classroom. Parents, please remember that our cafeteria stops serving breakfast at 7:45am. Our tardy bell rings at 7:50am each morning. Students arriving late to school must be signed in by a parent at our front desk. Parents please remember to use the front crosswalk in the mornings to ensure the safety of you and your child.
Just a reminder, breakfast and lunch are no longer free of charge this year. The cost of breakfast is $2.25 and the cost of lunch is $3.25. If you are interested in completing a lunch form please visit our school website at douglasselementary.org and click on the lunch form link located on the homepage. Lunch accounts can be created and updated by visiting k12paymentcenter.com.
Parents, Wednesday, October 12th is an early release day. Students will be dismissed two hours early at 12:45pm. Also, our Fall Picture Day is Monday, October 17th. Information about fall pictures was sent home last week.
We are excited that our students will be participating in Fire Safety presentations throughout the week. We appreciate the Eden Fire Department for taking the time to come to Douglass Elementary to teach our students about fire safety and prevention.
Parents, our next PTO meeting will be Tuesday, October 11th beginning at 6:00 pm in the media center. Our PTO invites you to attend the meeting as we plan our Trunk or Treat Read with Me event that will take place on October 28th at Douglass Elementary from 5:00-7:00pm. Information about this event will be sent home with your child this week.
We will continue our Kindness Challenge in honor of Bully Prevention month this week. Ways in which your child can show kindness this week includes sharing something with someone on Monday, offering to help someone on Tuesday, inviting someone to join them in something on Wednesday, give someone encouragement on Thursday, and compliment two people on Friday.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning.
