October eNewsletter

Hello parents!

You will be contacted to sign up for Parent-Teacher conferences coming up this month during the week of October 16th. This is a very important way to communicate with your child’s teacher about their progress. The teachers stay late in the evenings on these two dates (Oct. 17-18) to accommodate your busy schedules. We look forward to having 100% attendance. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at 717-4470. Thanks for your support!

The annual “Bramlage Family Walk a Mile” event will take place on Friday, October 6th. Grandview students will be walking one mile in honor of the Bramlage family that passed away in 2012. We will begin the walk after lunch at 12:30 p.m. All Grandview residents are welcomed to join us. Please, no dogs. Following the walk, there will be a drawing for a bike and a scooter! Each winner will also receive a new helmet. Please mae sure that your student wears comfortable shoes that day. The event is sponsored by the Geary Community Healthcare Foundation.

School Bus Safety Tips: School buses are the safest way to get children to and from school, but injuries can occur if kids are not careful when getting on and off the school bus.

  1. Walk with your kids to the bus stop and wait with them until it arrives. Make sure drivers can see the kids at your bus stop.
  2. Teach kids to stand at least three giant stesp back form the curb as the bus approaches and board the bus one at a time.
  3. Kids should wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop before getting off and not to walk behind the bus.
  4. Slow down and stop if you’re driving near a school bus that is flashing yellow or red lights. This means the bus is eithe rpreparing to stop (yellow) or already stopped (red), and children are getting off.

Library Corner:

Wow! September was a busy month in the library. We celebrated the following authors for “Author of the Week”: Mo Willems, Roald Dahl, Shel Silverstein, and the men that helped write the Constitution. All classes celbrated “Constitution Day” with an activity in the library. Each class is also working on Digital Citizenship lessons and what it means to be a good Digital Citizen. Another exciting thing that happened was revealing how many gumballs were in the gumball machine. Kasiana Jacobs was the winner with the closest guess of 300. There were actually 368. Great job, Kasiana! Our guesstimation jar has candy corn this month. Make sure to keep reading and taking AR tests! Our mosaic is getting closer and closer each day!

Notes from the office:

If you have any changers to make on behalf of your students (parent pick-up, bus riders, walking home, etc…) A parent/guardian will need to call the school No Later Than 2:45 so that the information gets delivered in time for staff/students to know what changes are being make before the ending bell rings.

If your student is tardy in the mornings, please come in to sign them in. If your student is going to be absent, please call the office by 8:15.

Please use the sidewalk and crosswalks to walk to school, walking through the parking lot is very unsafe.

If you have updated phone numbers/addresses or other information changes, please come into the office and make them as soon as possible. This also includes adding or changing emergency contact information.

If your child has a Dr./Dental appointment, please get a note form them so your child may be excused.

Thank you so much for helping us out with this. We truly appreciate our Gator Family!

A Good Start- Did you know that breakfast is teh most important meal of your child’s day? It provides the nutrients and energy they need to concentrate in school. Research even shows that kids who eat breakfast get better grades, pay more attention in class, and behave better. Help your youngsters begin their day on the right foot.
