NEW INFO FOR THIS WEEK
Volunteers Needed in The Library on April 28th
Don’t we so appreciate those parents and teachers who CREATE and ENVISION and DECORATE and LEAD? But then there are so many of us who just want a simple project, one where you just tell me what to do and I’ll do it. Well, we have the perfect opportunity for you!
As our student population grows and we add more lovely books to our library, it’s becoming even more important to get a check in/out system in place. This will only be successful when all of our books are finally barcoded—and this has been a beast of an ongoing project. But many hands make light work, so we are hoping to hold some big blitz days in order to finally complete this job.
Our first one is scheduled for Friday, April 28. Claudia and I will be there to walk you through the (easy) steps, we’ll have cheat sheets that you can refer back to, we’ll have a comfortable place to work, and most likely even some treats. You can feel free to sit in front of your laptop and be antisocial or this might be an easy way to meet some new parents as you’re working.
If possible, please bring a laptop and meet us in the JRL library area at 9:00. We are so flexible and will take whatever time you can give us—come late, stay one hour or the whole day. It’s not even necessary to commit ahead of time, although if you know you’re coming, you can send me a quick email so we have a rough count. AND, this is also a great way to pull in grandparents or other family members or friends. Let’s make it a party!!

“Sex, Drugs and Technology” – Virtual Meeting – April 27th @ 7:00PM.

IMPORTANT: Morning Drop Off
In order to keep drop off moving smoothly, a reminder that students should be ready to exit your car with all of their gear when you stop. A good rule of thumb is if you need to unbuckle yourself to unload your student(s) and organize his/her gear or do anything else other than wave goodbye, please choose a parking spot in the lot or visitor parking area next to the building rather than sitting in the drop off zone.
Parking Lot Safety Reminder – Please KEEP LEFT
Just a reminder that, when entering and exiting the parking lot on the West (McDonald’s side of the building, all cars should follow the posted signs and KEEP LEFT at all times during the day, night and weekends. Thank you for helping keep our traffic flow moving in the right direction an ensuring the safety of our students, staff and families.
