We really want to encourage the children to be charitable in the St. Vincent de Paul food drive. This Friday was scheduled as a no-infraction uniform reward day. In honor of Bedlam this Saturday, I am postponing the reward day to Friday, December 9. This Friday (December 2) children who bring 2 cans of food or $2 may wear an OU or OSU shirt. This is not a free dress day, and this is not a jeans day. This is just a OU/OSU shirt day. If your child does not have a shirt with a logo, s/he may wear the appropriate school colors of OU or OSU. To make the competition a little more exciting, we will keep track of OU/OSU donations. If OU wins, Mrs. Outhier (SPN's most rabid OSU fan) and Ms. Shea (SPN's 2nd most rabid OSU fan) will wear an OU jersey on Friday, December 9 (the no infraction day). If OSU wins, Mrs. Hawkins (SPN's most rabid OU fan) and Mrs. Schmidlkofer (SPN's 2nd most rabid OU fan) will wear an OSU jersey on no infraction day.
Children who have had no uniform infractions since February 16th may dress out of uniform tomorrow. Children are being reminded by their teachers if they have had a uniform infraction. Please remember that children cannot wear tank tops, crop tops, leggings, jeggings, or yoga pants. Slogans on shirts must not be inappropriate. Children may wear their shirts untucked.
Grades 1st-8th will participate in the annual pray walk talk event during the school day. Don't forget to turn in your permission forms!
We are making plans for the children to see the solar eclipse. We will not have outside recess that day due to the risk of the children seeing the sun unprotected. Mrs.Tener will be sending a separate email with a permission slip. The letter explains the plan and provides information about our eclipse glass vendor. Please print the form and return it for your child to be able to view the eclipse.

Each year parents are invited for a special Thanksgiving lunch with their child(ren). This year our lunch is scheduled for Thursday, November 7. I will send a schedule of lunch times later. I would like, however, to make parents aware that if you have more than one child and they eat at different times, you are asked to eat across those multiple lunch times. The cafeteria cannot accommodate the need for extra chairs at other lunch times, and it is disruptive to an already modified class schedule. Thanks for your consideration in this.
Students in grades Kindergarten through 8th will need to be in the gym by 5:40 to get with their classes.
As the Principal for a Day, our principal declared that this Friday (March 29) the children may come out of uniform. Please remember: no spaghetti straps, no tank tops, no inappropriate sayings, no short shorts, no crop tops. If you have a doubt about what your child wishes to wear, please don't let him/her wear it.
Box Tops are due on August 31 for the 1st competition. The class with the most Box Tops will earn an extra recess. The middle school counts Box Tops by house.
It is the time of year to elect new officers for the 2019-20 academic year. If you would like to place your name on the ballot, email the PTO officers: firstname.lastname@example.org, call Mrs. Tener, or let your homeroom parent know.
April is Child Abuse Awareness/Prevention month. Monday, April 1 the children will receive a coloring sheet. Any child who returns the coloring sheet by Tuesday, April 9 will receive a child abuse awareness bandana. All students are asked to wear blue on Wednesday, April 10 to stand against child abuse.
