Notes from the School Nurse
Let’s start off each day with a sparkle and a shine! We all know the importance of dental hygiene, but it's important to understand that there's more to it than just brushing your teeth.
Here's what you need to know:
Brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily.
Replace your toothbrush every 3 months.
Get regular cleanings with a dentist, every 6 months.
Skip the juice and soda, and go for water or milk instead.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me by email at email@example.com.

READ FAMILY NIGHT WITH THE
Thursday, November 10th, 2022
Read Elementary will be participating in a food drive organized by the Mid-Morning Kiwanis. During the month of November we will be collecting canned and boxed non-perishable items.
Read Families- We could use your help! The Health Office is greatly in need of clothing changes for our students here, sizes 4 through Junior. Through past donations from staff and families, we have been able to supply extra socks, undergarments, pants, t-shirts and sweatshirts to those students who may need a change during the school day, for various reasons. Unfortunately, we are running very low. If you happen to do a closet clean out and are willing to part with elementary school-sized student clothing, we would be so grateful!!! Please feel free to send clothing in with your student to bring to the office, or you can stop by the school during regular school hours. If you know your child may have accidents at times please send extra clothing with them to store in the classroom. THANK YOU in advance!!!
BREAKFAST/LUNCH MENUS & FOOD SERVICE INFORMATION
If your child is going to be absent or late for school for any reason, please contact the office at 920-424-0172. If we are unable to speak to us directly, you may leave a message on the voice mail system to report the absence. Please be specific when calling your child in. If it is an illness we do need to know all the symptoms the child is having as well as the best number to reach you at if we have any further questions. Absences are considered "unexcused" if we do not hear from a parent/guardian by 9 am. Students who are absent from school more than 10 minutes of any part of the day without a proper excuse shall be recorded as unexcused. A student who is absent less than 10 minutes of a day shall be recorded as tardy. The time a student enters or leaves the building will be documented, and the system will calculate the absence accordingly and uniformly across the district. Please keep this in mind as you schedule appointments for your children. It is always best to schedule appointments during non-school hours. Students are expected to be in class from 7:45 to 2:45 daily.
This years Winter Concert will be Monday, December 19, 2022 at Alberta Kimball Auditorium at 6pm.
Treats: Edible birthday treats are NOT allowed per district policy. Students are allowed to bring a small, tangible birthday treat such as pencils, stickers, glowsticks, etc.
Invitations: Classroom teachers may not distribute birthday invitations to students unless they are going to an entire class. If you are inviting kids from another class, that whole entire class would need to be invited too. We prefer that birthday invitations get handled outside of school.
Picture Retake will be the morning of Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022

We have had a great month in the media center! We welcomed our new Media Assistant, Roxanne Rohde. She has been working with students to set clear expectations for their time in the media center. You might start to see overdue or lost book notices coming to you via email from her. Remember that we do not charge late fees, we just want those books back in circulation for other students to enjoy! When you receive an overdue notice, please have a conversation with your student and look around at home for books! We appreciate your help with this.
We haven't received any photos yet of students using their safe spot for books at home. If you have any to contribute, please email Mrs. Rucinsky your picture. She will display it on our Digital Display board at school for students to see. We love making connections between home and school.
We have had an increase in students breaking off keys from their school issued chromebooks. Please talk with your child about this, as any intentional damage may be charged directly to your account. We will notify the guardians, but we really hope to never have to charge anyone! Please talk with your student about treating their library books and chromebooks with care.
