CAT IN THE HAT PARADE
Our Cat in the Hat parade will be Friday, March 3 at 9:00 around the high school football field. Parents are asked to sit in the home seats of the football stadium. Each child in Primary Montessori (4K & 5K) needs to make a hat at home with a Dr. Seuss theme! The easiest way to make one is to start with a hat that already fits your child’s head and add decorations to it. If your child’s hat has not been turned in, please get it to the teacher as soon as possible.
Teachers will be available for conferences the evening of Thursday, March 23 from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm. If your child’s teacher has requested a conference, please make every effort to attend. If you would like to set up a conference with your child’s teacher, please send a note to your child’s teacher or call during her planning period.
PARADE OF NATIONS
Our first through third graders have been learning about countries all over the world. Please join us on Friday, March 3 to see all the countries parade around the high school football field immediately after the Cat in the Hat parade around 9:30. Parents are asked to sit in the home seats of the football stadium. Our students and staff have worked very hard to create artifacts and representations of these countries. Hope you can join us!
Yearbooks are now $25. If you would like to get a yearbook, please send your payment to school in an envelope labeled with your child’s name and teacher. You can no longer purchase a yearbook online. We will have a limited number of extras, so please don’t delay in sending in your order.
Spring pictures will be taken on Friday, March 10. Every student will have their picture taken, so please dress your best! Pictures can be purchased by returning the completed flyer with payment to your child’s teacher. You can also purchase pictures online at www.spring.legacystudios.com. Our school code is 9113R23. Green screens will be used, so please DO NOT wear green on picture day. Each child will come home on Friday with a QR code that you can scan to view their picture.
We will hold registration for new 4K and 5K students for the 2023-2024 school year the week of March 13-17. Children who turn 4 on or before September 1, 2022 are eligible to attend 4-year old kindergarten. Registration will be held in the main office:
Monday - Friday: 8:30am-3:30 pm
All of the following documentation will need to be presented for each student at the time of registration:
Your child will not be officially registered until ALL required documents have been received.
If you are signing a student out early, do so before 2:00 pm unless you have been called by the school nurse. If you know ahead of time that your child will be checked out early, please send a note. This will help the teacher be prepared to send your child home early. You will also need to sign your child out in the office. Please do not take your child from the school without alerting the office staff and signing them out on the clipboard at the front desk.
When picking up car riders, please make sure your car tag is visible until the children are in your vehicle. If you do not have a car tag, plan to pick your child up in the office between 2:45-2:55 pm.
Using social media is among the most common activity for children today. While using social media can provide your child with the opportunity to stay connected with friends and family, it is very important for parents to monitor the use of social media for potential problems. Studies show that children younger than 11 years old who use different social media platforms are more likely to have problematic digital behavior. Young children can be exposed to inappropriate or upsetting content, cyberbullying, and data breaches while using social media. Other negative effects of using social media at an early age are stress, depression, loss of reality, low self-esteem, and anxiety. If you are going to allow your child to use social media, talking is the best way to protect them from the risks and ensure their internet safety. Find alternative ways for your child to connect with family and friends, such as visiting the park together or inviting a friend to your house. These are much better ways for young children to develop their social skills.
All Primary Montessori (4K & 5K) students will be going on a field trip to the Marion Country Museum. The museum is also hosting a Living History Day with games, gardening, spinning, and other fun things for free on Saturday, March 18. We hope you will consider taking your child to this very fun, educational day!
