September Newsletter

Communication Envelopes
At the end of each month, your newsletters, calendars, statements, and other parent correspondences will be placed in this yellow envelope and sent home with the oldest student in your family.  Please read the contents, sign and date the envelope, and return it to the office by the due date on your statement or as soon as possible. Keep the information that is inside. Your signature tells us you have the information. Feel free to use the envelope to make payments or other communications when returning to the office.  Sometimes you will receive forms in these envelopes that we want returned to the office. Please send these forms back to school no later than the given due date.
If we do not receive your envelope to reuse the next month, you will be charged $1 for a new one.

Achievement Tests
Enclosed you will find the 2013-2014 Stanford Achievement Test Results for your children.

Health Room Emergency Cards
Enclosed you will find information from the Reading School District Health Department. Please fill out a form for each child and return to the office as soon as possible. Yes, this is in addition to all you may have filled out already!!

Excuse Card Changes
Beginning this year, teachers will give students their excuse card on the day the student returns to school. Please fill out the card and send it back with the student to give to their teacher.

Volleyball Games
We are looking forward to another good volleyball season. We would like to remind the parents that we are not responsible to babysit your children during this time. Students may not play in the school before or during the games.  There are several away games. The school staff is not responsible for younger children who go along with their older siblings.

Box Tops
We will again be collecting Box Tops, Campbell’s soup labels, juice pouches, and ink cartridges this year. We have been very thankful for the benefits of them in the past years.

Ladies’ Prayer Time
Beginning Wednesday, September 3, all the mothers are invited to come together for a time of prayer at school in the conference room. This will be held regularly on the first Wednesday of the month from 8:15-9:00. We believe prayer does make a difference in the lives of our children and staff. Come and be blessed as you bless others with your prayers.

Medication
According to the regulations of the State of Pennsylvania, we cannot hand out any medications from the office. If your child is sick or not feeling well and needs a pain reliever of some form, they should come to the office. We will then contact the parent.  If your child is taking a prescription medication, that medicine, along with a doctor’s order, must be kept in the office. The nurse will come to administer it at the scheduled time.  If you have any questions, please contact the office.

Staff Feature
Jessica Stoltzfus is our newest staff member. She will be joining us as secretary this year. Besides being secretary here at school, Jessica also enjoys reading, hiking, spending time with friends, and playing volleyball.  We are happy to have Jessica, and she is doing a great job in the office.

Parent-Teacher Fellowship
We are looking forward to meeting all the parents at our Parent-Teacher fellowship on Tuesday, October 7, at 7:30pm. Ralph Rice will be speaking to us again this year.
