Skate Party

The PTA is planning a skating party at Roller City from 4:15 to 6:00 p.m. The cost of skating is $4.00 per person with the students being transported to the skating rink by district school bus. Please be sure to come into the rink between 6:00 and 6:15 p.m. to check your child out. Permission slips will be sent home prior to the event and students will not be allowed to enter the bus without a signed slip. Please note the skating money and spending money must be in separate envelopes.

Now you can check your child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math from home. Renaissance Learning has released a Home Connect program. Follow this link and use the same log in information your child uses at school.

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI''). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.

Latchkey before school is provided through the Haysville Activity Center (HAC). For information to sign up your child for morning latchkey or for drop in care for your kids on days in which school is out.

Call the school if you are interested in becoming a teacher helper, tutor, field trip monitor, etc. The students need YOU!

Literacy First

February Update

Phonics and Word Study are crucial skills that begin in Pre-K and con-tinue throughout your child’s education. Focus on these skills are a big part of your child’s day. The purpose of word study is to address phon-ics skills, spelling patterns and vocabulary growth. Some of the ways your child practices word study in the various grades in-clude word sorts, keeping a word study notebook, looking at language and its history, doing word hunts, webs or ladders, illustrating words, writing ABC books or homo-phone books, practicing with dictionaries and the-sauruses, doing activity cards and playing games based on phonics skills.

If you have any questions about Literacy First please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, myself or check out the official website: www.literacyfirst.com
