October 2021 Newsletter

Trash-a-Thon 

We are eagerly looking forward to Trash-a-Thon on Wednesday, October 20.  The school will partner with the Reading Public Works Dept. to clean up trash on the streets of Reading.  Students can continue to get sponsors throughout the month of October.  Money needs to be turned in by October 31.  For each family that raises $500 or more, their students will get a free trip to Sky Zone with the school. 

We still need parents to volunteer to lead groups on the day of Trash-a-Thon.  Please let the office know if you can help.  We will also need some pickup trucks to use for trash hauling that day.

Parent-Teacher Fellowship CANCELLED

Due to multiple scheduling conflicts, the Parent Teacher Fellowship planned for October 6 is cancelled.  We plan to try something new this year instead and have a Parent/Alumni Night on March 18. 

Health Room Emergency Cards

Thank you to everyone who returned their forms.  If you have not handed the emergency forms in yet, please do so immediately so we have the necessary information to care for your child.

Dental Forms

All students currently in grades 1, 3, and 7 are required by the Reading School District to submit proof a dental examination dated May 1, 2021 or later.  Forms are included in this mailing. 

Picture Day

Picture day is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10. Students are not required to wear their uniforms that day, but clothing must reflect the standards of the school.

The order forms for picture day will be sent home at the end of October with the November newsletter.

Scrip Program

We are continuing to participate in the Scrip Program.  Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount.  You can buy the gift cards for full face value, redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.  To order gift cards, use the order form to select the gift cards you want to order.  Then send your money and the order form to the school office. We will place the order and you will receive the cards in approximately two weeks.  It’s not too early to plan ahead for Christmas!
