MORNING ARRIVALThank you for helping to make the morning arrival procedures run so smoothly! Your patience is very much appreciated. Please remember that we need ONE car line only. Please don’t double the line to let students out or make them cross the street as this can be dangerous.
Keep these things in mind…
1) Realize that students will not be supervised until 8:30 when the doors are open.
2) Breakfast is served between 8:30—8:50
3) Students are released from the gym at 8:45
4) Students should be in their seats ready for the announcements at 8:55.
5) Teaching begins at 9:00
We are celebrating good behavior and responsibility at the end of each month. Students who qualified for the Shark Celebration this month were treated to a popsicle and some free play time. Remember, all students must maintain 90 points to qualify for the celebration. Although we commend our students who keep all 100 points, we want students and parents to recognize that students are not expected to be perfect. It is an important life lesson to accept making mistakes and then move on to try again.
Thank you to all the parents who are checking Shark folders regularly. It really helps the child to be successful when the parents and school maintain communication.
If you have any safety, disciplinary, or general improvement suggestions for Sherman, please feel free to attend the monthly PTO meetings to share your ideas. Meetings are usually held the first Tuesday of every month at 5:30. First PTO meeting of 2016-2017 is September 6th.
PARKING FOR SPECIAL ACTIVITIESThere will be times when we have activities during the school day. For example, we have concerts or 3rd grade “Dad’s Day.” For these activities, we encourage parents to go ahead and park in the area south of the school and use the south door to enter (the same door we use in the morning for arrival.) We will allow parking in the marked spots and in the bus zone, in the field east of the school, and along the north and west sides of the park. (The city conveniently left the old sidewalk in which makes a great parking area).
We will typically have these activities end by 3:00 so that the participants are able to leave their parking spots before the other students get out of school. Hopefully, this routine will be convenient for those who attend the activities while not interfering with the dismissal process.
