August 2015 E-Blast

Dear Parents,

Our 2015-2016 school year is just about to begin, again summer break has flown by.  We are sad to say goodbye to our summer break but very excited to see our families again! 

We have some immediate volunteer opportunities that can be done at any time and your children can be with you. Volunteer hours include your time, gas, and equipment use.

  • Weed whacking 
  • Re-spread playground chips – Bring a rake and work gloves.
  • Transport lift – Must have a trailer. Return lift to Pinecrest Church, located on Singing Hills & Delbert Road. 

If you can help, please call Ms. Anne ASAP at (303) 646-2636.  Remember to record your hours at using your email.

Free& reduced lunch applications are on our website, so please print and complete, then return to school in a sealed envelope marked cafeteria.

All checks for lunch can be sent with your student and made out to Elizabeth Food Service.  If you have more than one student, please write each students name and teacher in the memo and how you would like the money allocated.  Please remember, if you are running late and your student will arrive after 8:15, you need to call the office to order a hot lunch.  Students will still be able to purchase ice cream on Fridays, but need one dollar in cash.

Monday, August 17, 2015 ~ Kindergarten & Sixth grade orientation.  Children will attend from 12:00pm  to 3:15pm. 

All kindergarten parents please plan on parking and walking your students to their classroom, then staying for a 45 minute orientation in the Cafeteria. Teacher assignments will be at a table in the front lobby. The teachers want you to know what to expect for your student in the 2015-16 school year.  Please make sure you have copies of your students immunizations and birth certificate and stop by the office to finalize payments and get carpool numbers.
