NO SCHOOL MONDAY
There will be no school on Monday, January 20th,
in observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday.
We are asking our students to show their commitment to service
by doing an act of service on Monday, January 20th.
This service can be for family or the community, and the students will be asking to be paid in a non-perishable food item to be donated to the Kettle Falls Food Bank. We will collect food through January 24th. Students were sent home today with a “service” form and more information!

FAMILY GAME NIGHT FOR GRADES K, 1ST & 2nd!
Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade classes are invited to join us for “Make and Take Reading Games” on Thursday, January 23rd, from 3:15 to 4:30 in the K, 1st and 2nd classrooms. We will be providing cookies and having a prize drawing.
PARENTS – PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE YOUR CHILD’S NAME IN HIS /HER CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR.
We have several students who have the same brand, color and size – and it’s very easy to grab someone else’s “stuff!” Children do go outside for recesses unless we have extremely low temperatures or wind chill. Please remember to have your child dressed warm! If you need help with snow clothes, please let us know.
FREE/REDUCED LUNCH FORMS
Parents - we would like to remind you that Federal Lunch Forms are available throughout the school year and we encourage families who have had a change in their employment status, etc., to apply for free or reduced lunches. If questions, please contact our office.

ADVENTURE LUNCH PROCEDURE
This year our kitchen will be providing lunches for field trips. The cost will be the same as what your child currently pays for a hot lunch (regular price, reduced price, or free.) The lunch will usually consist of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Cheetos, raisins or an apple, carrots, and milk - the milk will be kept in a cooler. If your child has a peanut allergy, please inform the office and we will provide a different type of sandwich. Students are still welcome to bring their own lunch or extra snacks and/or a water bottle if they wish. If you would like your child to have the school sack lunch, please ask your child to inform his/her teacher on Tuesday morning, so that the kitchen will know how many lunches to prepare on Wednesday morning.
