Here are a few details that will be helpful as you begin the school year.

Important schedule notes:  The district has made changes to the school day start and end times.  Every day, except Wednesday, our school day will be from 8:20am-3:00pm.  Wednesday’s late arrival schedule will be 9:40am-3:00pm.

Our sixth graders will begin the school year on Tuesday, September 5th at 8:20am.  Our seventh and eighth graders will start their school year on Wednesday, September 6th at 9:40am with breakfast available before school. Students will report to their homeroom class before the bell on their first day.  Included in this letter is your homeroom teacher/room number.

Our sixth graders will be participating in a breakfast program called Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC).  Sixth grade students will be served breakfast each morning in their classroom at the start of each day from 8:20–8:35am during Homeroom class (9:40-9:55am on Wednesdays).  Seventh and eighth grade students will eat breakfast in the cafeteria. We offer breakfast free to all students.  Breakfast and lunch will be available the first day of school.

New Bus Routes

The district’s bus system is making some major changes to become more efficient.  Hopefully this will result in students always being picked up and dropped off on time.  The final bus routes are not available as of this mailing

When the schedules are complete, they will be posted online on the district’s website, and we will post copies on the front doors at Alice Ott.   It is important for you to check your student’s BUS NUMBER, STOP, and TIME, as these MAY HAVE ALL CHANGED!

Parent Teacher Organization

We will continue to have morning meetings during the 2017-18 school year.  These meetings will be on Tuesday mornings from 7:00-7:45am in the Alice Ott Library on the following dates:  9/19, 10/31, 1/30, 4/3, 5/1, 6/5.

We will be selecting officers for the open positions at the first meeting in September and hope that you will join us.  Please consider volunteering and supporting our Parent Teacher Organization with Italian Soda Sales or one of the other activities they sponsor.

Please mark your calendar.  We will be having our Back to School Night on September 21st, beginning at 6:00pm.

PE UNIFORMS will be sold on August 30th and August 31st from 8am-3pm, and throughout the year.  If you need a uniform, please drop by the school to purchase one. They cost $10 for the shirt and $10 for the shorts.

School Picture Day will be on September 21st or 22nd  during each student’s PE class.

Yearbooks will be $10 to start the year, and gradually increase as the year continues.
