Reminder that school starts at 8:15 am which means the students need to be in their line when the bell rings to be considered on time. The Forum doors will close promptly at 8:15 am forcing all late students to go through the office to get a tardy slip. Multiple tardy notices may result in a district generated truancy letter. Please make sure your student arrives to school prior to the 8:15 am morning bell to avoid the risk of being tardy. Being late can start a child's day off on the wrong foot. Not only does a student who is consistently late to school establish bad punctuality habits, their tardiness also disrupts the learning of other students in their classes and they often miss out on important opening announcements and academic activities.

This time of year can be exhausting for our children... following expectations all day long and being challenged with new learning curriculum and experiences. Your home routines can play a big part in setting our students up for success! Staying true to routines and home can be a relied upon foundation for children to recharge, rest, and be ready for the daily rigors of school. Click on the headline to read more..

Recommendations: • Contact the classroom teacher First! Most concerns can be resolved by the school personnel who are closest to the issue. Our staff members are professional educators who want to hear your concerns and have an opportunity to address. Contact the teacher by phone, email, or schedule a conference.

We are always proud to see a large ESD presence at Omar's Run, this year to be held Sunday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m. at Hellyer Park. This run raises funds to enable hospitalized and medically supervised kids to remotely attend school allowing them to stay connected to their teachers and classmates, in memory of ESD student Omar Hassan who passed away from leukemia in 2012. This was his dream and we run to help that dream become a reality. Check out their website for more and for registration information.

Attached is a flyer for our IFN next week at Quimby Oak MS on Wed 9/5 from 3-6:30pm. This event has proven to be a very successful event. Last year, we had nearly 400 students participate! Improvement in attrition and success rate has also increased, both huge strides for our program. All students attending are offered the ability to try all the band instruments, meet their teacher, and physically register at the event. Past and current students, pros, and teachers will all be on hand to help assist kids, answer questions, and provide a 1-1 fitting of an instrument to each kid. Priority consideration for district lottery instruments will be given for those who attend the fitting night. Click on the headline for the flyer.

For the first two weeks of school parents should consider their student's placement to be provisional. It is possible that classes will be added, dropped, or that combination classes will need to be formed or dissolved. Should this happen, some students will be required to change classrooms. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this process as smooth as possible for our students.
