EARLY DISMISSAL JANUARY 27


SUNDAY NIGHT EMAIL UPDATE:

Weekly email update for January 26-30

 

Good evening MTE families,

 

I hope your weekend has been a wonderful one!  How quickly the weather changed. 

 

I want to send a reminder that this week is an early release Tuesday.  The specialists and special education teachers will be working on new learning specific to their area and the classroom teachers will be learning about the new Social Studies standards for the upcoming school year.  I am excited for our learning time as a staff.  It helps us to be the best educators we can be. 

 

After the Friday dismissal challenge, I thought it would be a great to time to remind families about some of the car line safety rules that help us to be safe and timely at arrival and dismissal. When drivers choose to not follow the rules, it slows the line down for everyone else.  We appreciate all of you who do patiently follow rules.  We know that if you know the rules, you will most likely adhere to them. We know most people follow the rules - most of the time. Thank you.

 

Please only park in parking spots.

Please ONLY cross in designated cross walks.  Do not cross in-between cars.

Please refrain from texting or using your cell phone while in the car line.

Please take turns at the merge area.

Please follow the directional arrows in the parking lot.  

Please remember – the staff members working in the carline are volunteers who work each day to keep your children safe.  Please be kind to them. 

 

As always, please contact me if you have any questions, concerns or comments.

“It is a great day to be a bulldog!”

 

Debbie Bond

BVEF MAJOR SAVER DISCOUNT CARD CAMPAIGN

The 2015 Major Saver Discount Card campaign launches in Blue Valley on Jan. 20!  This is NOT a PTO fundraiser.  Last year, participating students helped the Blue Valley Educational Foundation and participating schools raise more than $40,000.

 

Elementary and middle school students will be selling $15 cards with 20 Buy-One-Get-One Free offers starting Tuesday, Jan. 20 through Friday, Feb. 6.  Major Saver cards can be purchased via cash, check or online at www.majorsaver.com.  The online sale can be credited back to a particular student and school.  All cards purchased online will be maileddirectly to the customer.

 

Please consider purchasing a Major Saver card from a Blue Valley elementary or middle school student.  The proceeds from these sales will benefit the participating schools and the Blue Valley Educational Foundation.  

 

 

GRADES 2-5 JUMP ROPE FOR HEART, FEB. 2-6

Students in grades 25 should have received a Jump Rope for Heart letter and envelope to participate.  All students will be participating in the jump rope activity during their scheduled P.E. classes, but raising money for this cause is purely on a volunteer basis.   All money raised earns credit towards new and improved P.E. equipment for our students.  

 

*Money and envelopes are due to your student’s P.E. class the week of Feb. 2-6.  

*Be sure to ask your company and remind friends and family members to check if their companies offer a company match.  This is a huge opportunity to double any donations.  

 

Join our team at: heart.org/jump

*click on the button "Students Sign Up."

*Join your school's team and set up your Web page to email family and friends

 

Our students have done a remarkable job in past years raising money for this worthy cause, and we would like you to know that we truly appreciate their efforts.
