Jogathon is coming!

Mark your calendars for Friday, September 28, 10:30-11:30 at Lower Woodland for the annual Daniel Bagley Jogathon!

The Jogathon is the biggest fundraiser of the year, and one where kids really feel connected to the campaign, since they're doing the work.

Adult volunteers are needed to help, too:  setting up, cleaning up, transporting supplies to and from Woodland Park track, making sure kids get on buses, cheering, punching cards after each lap, directing, and more.  If you can take the morning off work, it's a great way to get connected to the school and see the kids in action.

Monday Morning Meetings

Parents are welcome to attend Monday Morning Meetings, held right after the first bell (~9:35 or so) in the lunchroom.  Sign in at the office as a visitor if you plan to stick around.

There's a good chance that tomorrow's MMM will be an all-school one, based on (a) last year's schedule and (b) it being the first one of the school year... but I don't know.


From a springtime Buzz edition:  LAST YEAR'S Monday Morning Meeting Schedule (2011-2012):

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

First day is tomorrow!

Don't forget to pack an extra change of clothes in a ziploc (stays in the locker all year), lunch, a water bottle, all those forms, and the items from your school supplies list.

The first bell is at 9:25, but get there early - it will be pandemonium on the playground with all the extra parents milling around. Find your classroom line, leave the backpack there, and play until the bell... then kids have to come back and line up to go inside.  Usually, kindergarten parents can go inside on the first day to help with locker finding and so on.  Don't forget to take photos (it's tricky with all the activity).

The annual flag raising ceremony will be around 9:45/10 at the front of the school, so stick around for that.

Pickup is at 3:30/3:35 in front of the school.  Only K-1 classes are picked up at the front of the school so it won't be hard to find them; usually they are on the lawn approximately in front of their classroom.  Children must wait for parents and teachers to make eye contact before leaving the class group, so try to enforce that right from the start.

Congratulations!  You've made it!
