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 2012-2013 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.

Excuse Cards
There are a few excuse cards per student enclosed to be used when your child is absent. Each student needs to bring a separate card. If a student is absent two or more consecutive days, you may put all the dates on one card.

Please be informed that all absences will be considered unexcused unless you send an excuse card.

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. Please do not leave your children here unless there is an older sibling to watch them. Children may not play in the school before or during the games.

There are several away games. We ask that each student participating brings a dollar to help with fuel cost.  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, 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 4, 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
Diana Bara-popa is our newest staff member. She is a recent graduate from FCS, and we are happy to have her return as a monitor.

Besides her full-time job here at school, Diana works at Papa John’s Pizza in the evenings. When she isn’t working, she enjoys drawing, painting, or helping around the house.

Diana is helping Miss Witmer in LC2. She says, “Most of all, I enjoy interacting with the children.”

Diana, we’re glad to have you on staff this year. Your energy and help in the classroom and on the playground are a blessing to those around you.
