It has again been a pleasure to see so many of our families at school. Last Tuesday night at the PTA meeting, Wednesday at our Veteran's Day assembly, evening at the Dark, Dark Night and Friday manning the Box Tops and Spirit Wear stores, and helping with the Walk-a-Thon Limo Lunch, we are fortunate to have so many supportive and helpful parents. As long as the school/parent relationship remains strong, our children will be successful!
LOST AND FOUND
Our lost and found is overflowing! We have arranged all of the lost clothing on tables in the front hall outside the office. Please stop by some time before the Thanksgiving break to collect anything that belongs to your child. Anything that is left at the end of the day on will be donated to charity.
We are looking for a parent volunteer who may know of a charitable organization that can use the unclaimed clothing from our lost and found. If you would be willing to pick up our unwanted clothing on a regular basis, please contact Laura Brown. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are planning to travel over the holidays and your child will miss school as a result, please don't forget to notify the school office. It's never too early to let us know! You may call us at 614-450-4700 or email Linda Watts at mailto:email@example.com
Speaking of traveling, if you plan an out of town trip without your children, please be sure you leave emergency contact information with the school before you leave. Should something happen to your child during a school day, we need to be able to reach someone local while you are away.
Thinking about buying books for family and friends for the holiday? WAIT!! will be the Barnes and Noble (Polaris) Book Fair benefiting our school library. The school will receive a percentage of purchases both online and in-store. Look for a flyer coming soon.
COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL INFORMATIONAL FLYERS
In an effort to reduce the amount of paper coming home with our students each week, this year we are using the school website to publicize opportunities available to our families. At least once a week, please be sure to visit the Worthington Hills Website for information. The electronic backpack is a Quick Link on the left side of the page. PTA information can be found on the PTA tab on the menu bar. Some examples of the information available this week are:
McConnell Arts Guide
When you are in the school building, check out the information table in front of the office. Paper copies of most flyers can be found there.
