Weekly Wildcat News
August 21, 2014WELCOME TO THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR!
Welcome back to all our Watson Families, and a special welcome is extended out to the families new to our school. Our Wildcat newsletters will be available on the school website and handed out each Thursday to your students. Mrs. Cafferty asked for everyone’s email address at the Open House. If you were not able to attend, please call the office with your email address. Mrs. Cafferty would like to communicate through email for special announcements or reminders regarding your student as just another way to touch base with you throughout the year.
There are a lot of papers being sent home at this time of year. Please pay attention to when we need these forms returned to the office. We appreciate all your help in trying to get everything updated for your students. ALL FORMS SHOULD BE RETURNED BY NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27th.
- Light lavender health form
- Blue Field Trip Forms (for Kindergarten and new students only)
- White Census form (PLEASE complete BOTH SIDES, make sure to look over carefully. If no changes still send back to school)
HANDBOOKS: If you have students in Watson with a brother or sister, handbooks are given out to the youngest family member. Take a few minutes to really look over our handbook. These are now district-wide rules and it will answer a lot of your questions as far as procedures such as; phone calls, calling the school when student is sick, and playground rules you will need to discuss with your student(s), etc.
BREAKFAST If you are eating breakfast, it begins at 7:40 AM. School supervision begins at 7:55. Students SHOULD NOT be here before 7:55 AM, UNLESS they are eating breakfast.
REMINDER: If you are dropping something by during the school day for your child, please leave it at the office and we will take it to your child as soon as possible. Our goal is to have a limited amount of interruptions in the classrooms!
CROSSWALK INFORMATION: Please talk to your students to use the crosswalk on the southwest side of the building when students are dismissed to prevent accidents. Please do not stop in the middle of the street to unload or load students. Take the time to pull to the curb and instruct your student to get in or out on the passenger side only. The curved driveway is for buses and daycare vans only. DO NOT park in the entrance or in parking spaces of the parking lot. We have a lot of traveling teachers that need to come and go quickly.
LUNCH: Milk is now .45 cents. We do not accept change in the lunchroom. Remember to put money in your student’s account, even if they just get milk each day. Please see attached note regarding microwave.
If a student is on our free or reduced program and they would like an extra milk or entrée they will need money in their account to be able to purchase these items. Extra milk or entrée is not part of this program.
WEDNESDAY DISMISSALS: HASTINGS PUBLIC SCHOOLS WILL DISMISS AT 2:30 EVERY WEDNESDAY THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. Only exception to this is when we are on HOT WEATHER schedule.
PTO MEETINGS: The Watson School PTO is a very active group of parents that does a lot for this school and our students. We encourage all parents to attend these meetings and bring new and innovative ideas to our school. PTO meetings are held the first Monday of the month at 7:00 pm. FIRST PTO MEETING WILL BE SEPTEMBER 8TH and will be held in the school library.
SCHOOL PICTURES: School pictures will be September 24th
