Siler City Elementary School Families,
We have a new visitor check in system! As a reminder each visitor is required to check in at the front office and obtain a visitor pass. For your convenience, we now have an ID scanner. Please bring your official ID with you when signing in to make your check in process faster. However, if you forget to bring your ID with you to check in, you will still be able to manually key your information, just know that this will slow down the process of checking in. Thank you for your understanding as we continually strive to make our school safer for your children. Don’t forget to “check out” on your way out.
Please mark your calendars for this upcoming week. Remember that this Monday, February 18th, in a teacher workday. There will be no school for students. On Tuesday, February 19th, we will be having a PTA meeting and fashion show from 6:00 to 7:00 in the multipurpose room. Please consider attending. Finally, we will be having our 2nd Annual Multicultural Heritage Night on Friday, February 22, from 5:00-7:00 pm. Last year’s event was a huge success. Many countries and cultures were represented with food, flags, and music! If you are interested in participating at this year’s event, please call the front office and let itzel or Maria know, or email Janet Bridges at email@example.com to reserve a space. We hope to make this another successful evening!
We would like to extend an invitation to a districtwide event called Family Fest. The event will be held on February 26th from 5:30 to 7:30 in the evening at Jordan-Matthews High School. It’ll be a time for you to learn more about not only our school-based resources, but also what’s available in the community for families. You’ll be able to drop in on the sessions that address your particular needs. The YMCA will have activities for children ages 5 to 17, which includes a virtual-reality truck. Dinner will be provided. And you don’t want to miss the drawings for opportunities to win free wifi access for a year or an Apple iPad or all sorts of gifts cards. There is no charge for any of this. We just ask that you let us know you’re attending by calling or emailing Itzel Ocelot at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at 919-663-2032. We’re looking forward to seeing you at Jordan-Matthews on Feb. 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 at Family Fest.
Attention parents of third, fourth, and fifth graders. If you attended the February 13th Running Club meeting and have signed the required paperwork, Running Club begins for your child this Wednesday, February 20. Be sure to pick your child up up at 4:00.
