CHRISTMAS GALA- SOLD OUT EVENT!
AS A REMINDER: In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised, that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time. Please note temperature drops with winter season and other weather concerns.
Also, documentation of names of students will be taken, that are waiting outside prior to 8:05. Parents will be receiving the necessary contacts home as warnings.
After School Concerns
Please note that after our 3:00 pm dismissal, all car/walker students are under parent's supervision. Any child left without a parent pickup is to report back into the building. These students will report to Aftercare, and the normal fees will apply. Any student that remains in the parking lot must be under parent supervision. The school will not be held liable for students unattended.
Students/Parents must use the CROSSWALK. We were notified that students/parents are crossing throughout the streets, and must be using the designated crosswalks.
In keeping with past holiday traditions, we would like to invite you to participate in your
child’s teacher “group gift”. We have found this to be an overwhelming success for both
parents and teachers. It gives you, as parents, the convenience to just send in money
rather than shop, while giving teachers a substantial gift.
SERVICE PROJECT-Student Volunteers Needed Please!
5th grader, Ben Daloisio, is organizing an service project for the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden. They are looking for decorative holiday placemats for their guests. The goal is to make 100 that will be dropped off in time for meals being served on Christmas Eve. If we could make more, that would be even better!
Date: Wednesday December 20th
We can meet in front of the office. All supplies will be provided. A snack will be provided too.
Please respond to Deena Daloisio at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-685-3172.
