Dear Parents and Guardians,
Crazy Hair Day – tomorrow, Tuesday, October 5. As part of our PBIS traditions, at our Community Meetings I announce each class that has filled their bead or pompom jar and had a class celebration. When we get to 15 classes, it’s time for a school-wide celebration. Crazy Hair day is one of our favorites!
Thank you to those who have accessed their PowerSchool Parent Portal accounts and updated student information and contacts, as well as health, free and reduced lunch, and school permissions through software known as Ecollect. Instructions for accessing and navigating Ecollect can be found here: PowerSchool Ecollect Parent Guide.
Parents must verify student data every school year. If you have not already done so, we ask that you complete this important process as soon as possible. The technology permissions are especially important for your child’s access to their iPad in school and at home. Students will need their iPads should we have to go to remote learning if a class has to quarantine. We can’t send any tech devices home until parents have filled out the tech permissions.
LSUU School Board Meetings are happening in person again AND offering a virtual option as well. We have enjoyed seeing more parent and community participation with the virtual option. The meetings are primarily the first and third Tuesday of each month, begin at 5:30pm, and alternate between the MES Library and Stowe Elementary. You can find the agendas, minutes, and zoom links on the LSUU website.
Monday, October 11th – mark your calendars:
- NO SCHOOL – Parent Conferences: call the school for an appointment, 888-3101, and bring your child for their Hopes & Dreams conference.
- Scholastic Book Fair in the Library, cruise through after your child’s conference
- 5:00pm – Family kickball game sponsored by MES and Morristown Park & Recreation Committee in the kickball field on the school playground. Here’s a link to their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/274807425876151/posts/4510449862311865/?d=n
Enjoy our Vermont foliage this week!
