DRAGON DELIVERY                                                                                            OCTOBER 14, 2018

From Principal Christy Waddell

FUNDRAISER: We only want one fundraiser this year and we are still $9,000 from our goal.  We have decided to add some incentives.  Once we raise an additional $3,000 the teachers will wear crazy hair one day. With an additional $6,000 our custodian, Fano, will dress up as a Fairy, all day.  Finally, if we raise an additional $9,000 Principal Waddell and our PTA president Marissa Geertsen will kiss a real live pig!!  The fundraiser ends the end of this month so please bring in those donations.

DEWEY THE DRAGON: Dewey climbed into my suitcase without me noticing! When I got to Florida I found he was there.  I will be posting pictures and if the kids bring at least $2000 more for the fundraiser by Wednesday Oct. 16 then I will take him on the Splash Mountain ride and post a picture of him on it. Bring that money in!!

BOX TOPS:   The next day they will be collecting/counting the box tops is October 17th.  There is a contest between classes so be sure to send in your box tops.

DUAL IMMERSION APPLICATIONS:  The window is open from October 8thto November 21st.  If you have a kindergarten student and are interested in dual immersion you MUST apply during that window, even if there are siblings in the program.  There is a parent information night if you are interested in knowing more about the program.  It is October 24thfrom 6-8pm.  Please go to this link for more information:  http://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/12076-apply-online-for-csd-s-dual-language-immersion-programs

Emergency Drills:  Every month we hold emergency drills.  This month is a lockdown drill.  We will probably be doing the drill the week of October 22nd.  For this drill, I simply come on the loud speaker and tell the school we are going into lockdown.  The teachers lock their doors and teach the kids to sit very quietly away from the door window.  It will last about 5 minutes and then we resume teaching as usual.  I do not mention an intruder.  I feel strongly that we can practice this drill without unduly scaring any of the kids.  You are welcome to talk to them about it before we have the drill, the teachers will do so as well.  

SCC MEETING:  3:00 on Monday October 22ndwill be our next School Community Council meeting.
