The Spelling Bee Is Coming To Cornerstone in January!
Cornerstone’s Spelling Bee is open to students in grades 3-5 and is based on the word lists and rules outlined by the Scripps National Spelling Bee Rules.
We need three volunteers to act as judges. No experience necessary. Plan to be there at 15 min prior to the start time and we anticipate that it will run till 9pm. This is a great opportunity to knock out 4 service hours. Please email Sanaz Hamzehpour at email@example.com OR Tracy Patch at firstname.lastname@example.org if your interested in volunteering.
Spelling Bee will take place in the MPR on
Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 with start time of 5:00 PM
Forms may be found in the Parent Board Room and on What's Happening.
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Now that we have had three weeks to settle in to the routines of Kindergarten, we wanted to send out a few updates/reminders regarding the safety of our students.
We now have Miss Kelly who will be our official yard duty aide before school. That being said, we want to underscore the importance of Teaching Parent 1 being here and on duty at 8:10. As a reminder students can begin their school day at 8:15 (not before) and the yard needs to prepped and monitored for their safety. We have had several days where the coverage was not adequate because of late arrivals. We will now be asking TP1s to sign in at the Kindergarten gate.
In regard to morning drop off, we are encouraging families to start saying their goodbyes at the Kindergarten gate. Not only will this help with the number of wipes being used (they are going too fast), but also with the transition of our kinder students in to their daily routines. We are also concerned about younger siblings getting hurt as the equipment on our yard is meant for kinder aged students.
Thank you for everyone’s efforts at the end of the day to pick up your child on time. Per school policy, if your child is here after 2:15 (1:20 on Mondays) you will need to park and pick them up from the office. On Mondays, we need to be finished with pick up by 1:20 as grades 1-5 will be getting ready for their dismissal at 1:30. To avoid traffic and getting stuck in the pickup line with the rest of the school, please be prompt.
Finally, to reiterate Mrs. Marcus’ letter, if you are waiting for an older sibling’s dismissal you should be over at the round tables next to the MPR. The front of the school is not an area of play and we all need to be respectful of the work that continues after our kinders are dismissed.
Thank for all of your ongoing help and support! You are such an important part of our team. J
The Kindergarten Teachers
