WatchDOGS - Save the Date!
We’re looking forward to starting up our WatchDOGS program this Fall! We’re going to do a ‘Donuts with Dads’ Event on Wednesday morning, 9/7/22, from 8:00a - 8:25a, to reintroduce the program to our community and start the signups process for this Fall. The initial WatchDOGS calendar will be September - December based. We’ll have another event in January for the January - May sign-ups. Please take a moment and RSVP HERE so that we know how many donuts to order.
WatchDOGS Laundry Volunteer
Speaking of WatchDOGS, we’re looking for a Volunteer Parent that can wash our WatchDOGS t-shirts on a weekly basis. This volunteer will get their FULL 40 hours of volunteer time if you do this job for us!!! Given allergy / sensitivity concerns, we’d need the volunteer to use fragrance free laundry detergent. If interested, please contact Cynthia Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your child requires medications to be given at school, please make sure to fill out the Medication Order and Parent Release Form filled out and signed by the physician. Form available HERE. Bring both to the office. We currently have some medication forms but no medications have been brought in.
School Uniform Orders Update; new round of ordering coming up
The first round of school uniforms orders will be in on Tuesday! We will try to have them ready for distribution by Tuesday afternoon, or Wednesday morning at the latest. Due to the on-going national supply chain issues, our vendor is saying it’s taking about 3 weeks longer than normal to process orders at this time. We are going to do a second round of school uniform ordering. The deadline for this round will be Friday, 9/9/22. Given the extra processing time, we’d estimate that these orders will be available around 10/9/22. If you’d like to place a uniform order, you can do so at this link (scroll down to ‘school uniform’ section, and you can click on t-shirt, polo, sweatshirt, etc. links).
We’re still in the process of making some Waiting List calls to fill our limited remaining K-8th grade spots. In an effort to keep our grade levels balanced, at this point in particular we are looking for a few more 3rd grade girls and 5th grade boys. If you happen to know a family that fits this and you think they’d be a good fit at our school, encourage them to submit an application to our Waiting List, available on our website here.
Parking Spot RESERVED!
Congratulations again to the Miramon Family for winning the dedicated parking spot in our parking lot for this school year! The Miramon parking spot is located next to (to the right) our WatchDOGS parking spot - a new ‘RESERVED FOR’ parking sign has been ordered and will be placed at the spot as soon as it arrives. In the meantime, please do not park in this spot reserved for the Miramon family!
Over the next several weeks, we’re going to be recruiting parent volunteers for a LOT of different positions. Here are some of the spots we’re starting to recruit for, including the contact person’s name and email address:
