Dear Waters Landing Families:
Community Clean Up Day
Thank you to all the families who came to school on Saturday to help clean up the grounds and plant flower bulbs. The campus will look fantastic in the spring with all of the color.
This is a reminder that there is no school for students this coming Friday, November 1st.
Student Picture Day
Student Picture Day is this Tuesday. All students will have their picture taken. If you wish to order a portrait package, an order form must come with your child on Tuesday. Information about ordering online is included on the flyer sent home with students. You may order online prior to picture day and simply write the online order payment code at the bottom of the order envelope. Additional order forms are available in the school office if needed. Our make-up picture day will be in early December.
If your student is enrolled in our Homework Club, please note that the Homework club will not be meeting on Thursday, Oct. 31st.
Parents, we are seeing an increased number of parents dropping students off for school in the parking lot. The only safe drop-off location is the car circle. While we realize the car circle can be busy in the mornings, we are concerned for student safety and dropping children off in the parking lot creates an unsafe situation. We can’t have children walking through parked or moving cars. Thank you for your cooperation.
Our school Halloween parade & class parties will be held on Thursday afternoon beginning at 2:15. Students may not come to school in costume. Costumes should be brought to school in a bag and must be in good taste. Please keep in mind that costumes that depict gangs, violence, drugs or are gory are not acceptable. Pretend weapons, even as part of a costume, are not allowed in school. If you wish your child to participate in an alternative activity, please let your child’s teacher know.
We Need Lunch and Recess Substitutes
We are currently looking for lunch & recess substitutes. This would involve covering our lunch room and/or playground when needed during the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm for 1 to 2 ½ hours. If you are interested, please call the school office.
Mixed Bag Fundraiser
I hope you have had a chance to look at the Mixed bag catalog. This fundraiser supports the PTA and the programs & resources they provide to our students. Keep in mind that sales tax does not have to be added on orders placed through the school.
If you are sending in money to the cafeteria, please use the attached prepayment form or the form that comes home on the “low balance” statement. This will help the bookkeeping the cafeteria.
I will be on leave for a short period of time to take care of a personal medical concern. In the meantime, Mrs. Brown, our assistant principal, will be taking care of business as usual. As always, please contact the office and someone will be able to assist you.
Have a fantastic week!
