Dear PG Parent/Guardian,

Toys for Tots

There is a flyer attached about donating for the wonderful program called Toys for Tots. We appreciate the time and effort Mrs. Rosner puts into this every year!

 

Survey Update 

I wanted to thank everyone for taking the time to take the Program Survey I put out last week. The survey is still open for those of you who would like to take it. I will be closing the survey by the end of the week.

 

Book Fair

Please see the attached flyer for the upcoming Book Fair!

 

Kindergarten Registration

Prairie Grove SD 46 will be hosting Kindergarten Registration earlier this year in order to plan for staffing more effectively for next school year. The date is January 10, 2013. Please see the attached flyer for more details.

 

Junior High

Checkin-Checkout Beginning

Prairie Grove Elementary School has had a system for assisting students who may need an extra boost in self-confidence, organizational habits and/or positive reinforcement for behavioral expectations. This system is called Check-in/Check-out through the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports System, which is a worldwide known structure. Students start off the morning checking in with a teacher, teachers rate the student each day, parents receive communications each day, the student receives positives and rewards and the student finishes the day checking out with a teacher. We will be starting this program in the Junior High after winter break. Any student that we propose for this program will be provided a letter prior to entry. We are excited to help more students in a positive way!

 

Elementary

4th Grade Holiday Program

Please be sure to remember the Holiday Program is scheduled for December 20, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.

 

Safety & Lunchtime

After winter break, Prairie Grove SD 46 will be discontinuing the tradition of parents eating lunch with students at school. Please read the attached letter for a more detailed Safety Review and reasoning for such a move. I thank you for understanding the need for this extra step.

 

Holiday Shoppe

The PTO is sponsoring a holiday shop called The Penguin Patch.  It will allow your children to preview, budget, and purchase inexpensive gifts for family members, relatives, friends, neighbors and even pets!   This is a great way for students to learn about giving, budgeting, and to hone their math skills with money. 

Gifts are affordably priced from 25 cents to $11.  Children will be allowed to preview the items on Wednesday December 12, purchase on December 13, and make final selections December 14.  

To prepare your children to shop, please 
help them make a list of persons for whom they would like to buy gifts and help them come up with a reasonable amount to spend on each. Have them fill out the GIFT LIST and BUDGET ENVELOPE that will come home one week before it is time to shop.   When they preview items on December 12th,  they can write  down the items they would like to buy and the cost of each. After making a purchase, your child may use the free gift wrap station which includes name tags. Their chosen gifts will stay a surprise!I  

 

Any volunteers are greatly appreciated!  Please contact  mpetrowitz@comcast.net if you have any questions or if you can volunteer a few hours in our Penguin Patch!


Sincerely,


Vic Wight


Mr. Vic Wight - Principal
