DRAGON DELIVERY                                                                                    OCTOBER 7, 2017

From Principal Christy Waddell

REFLECTIONS: Thank you to all those who entered the reflections contest. The reflections awards assembly will be Friday November 9 at 9:15 for any parents who want to put it on their calendar and attend.

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.

During the school year 2017/2018, we earned a total of $1,794.70, which was awesome and some of the earnings went to a fantastic and fun field day at the end of the school year.
