First day of School for all returning, Toddlers (15 months-3), and All Elementary (6-14) students.
Come join us for our Annual Family Picnic!
All Country Meadows families are welcome!
It's going to be potluck style, so please check your child's classroom for the sign-up sheet to determine what to bring.
As a community, we will eat and play games/activites together!
Hope to see everyone there!
This day is for parent/teacher conferences in each class. There is no childcare and no school this day for teachers to meet with the parents to discuss the progress of their child.
You will need to sign up for a time. Please see you child’s teacher to arrange that.
Come have your child’s grandparents join us for a celebration before Thanksgiving Break! Each child will send home an invitation to their grandparents to arrive at 10am until 11:30am here at school.
All children will have an early dismissal this day at 11:30am for break.
The process of shopping spree can be a bit confusing as to how this works. So here's a brief walk-through:
If you have four members in your family your child will be buying 3 total gifts:
1 for Dad
1 for Mom
1 for brother/sister
You will send in 3 gift donations (unwrapped) for the "store" that the school will setup in the gym:
1 item that most Dads will like
1 item that most Moms will like
1 item that most brothers/sister will like
You will also send in an envelope with three $1 bills inside, which Your child will use to purchase the 3 items he/she selects. The envelope should have your child’s name on it, as well as the names of the gift recipients. Please also include ages of siblings. (Dad, Mom, brother/sister age)
On the day of the shopping spree, your child will go shopping and select three gifts from the collection of donations. The items will then be gift-wrapped and labeled for them to bring home for their families.
Children really enjoy participating and presenting their gifts to their family members. I hope you'll consider joining in!
