ADOPT-A-SUPPORT-STAFF-MEMBER for Staff Appreciation Week

During Teacher Appreciation Week, the classroom teachers get a lot of love…but what about everyone else?! This is your chance to spoil your favorite support staff member with small treats or gifts from May 6-May 10. You can send a little surprise each day or 1-2 larger items, it’s completely up to you. The only requirement is that you send something Monday to help kick off the week. 

All support staff members are listed here. Please sign up for anyone that you would like to “adopt”. Once you adopt, that staff member is no longer available to others. Please let us know if you are unable to follow through for Staff Appreciation Week and the PTA will cover for you.  Please review the available slots and sign up here.  If you need ideas for your staff member, email Jen at jensaks75@gmail.com to get a copy of their “Favorite Things” form. 

YEARBOOK: DEADLINE APPROACHING

The deadline to order and customize your 2 yearbook pages is April 26. You can still order a yearbook after that date and have it shipped to your house but if you would like your student to receive their yearbook in school, in time for them to have other students sign it, then April 26 is the deadline. To order, visit this link and enter the school passcode: 101344469053147

BOOK SWAP

Let’s trade! To participate, your student just needs to bring in 2 books that they are finished with (they need to be appropriate for Shabonee age readers and in good condition). Then, during the Swap, they can come and select two new-to-them books to take home and read. It’s a trade so there’s no cost! 

April 8-April 16: Teachers will have collection bins so bring in your books

April 18-19: Participating students will be allowed to come pick out two new books from our selection of donated books

5th GRADE PARTY: DEADLINE IS TODAY

For parents of 5th graders only:

The 5th Grade party will be held during lunchtime on Friday, May 31.  Please complete the linked form to order a t-shirt and lunch for your 5th grader by April 12.  By completing this form, you are granting permission for your child to attend the event.

Please send a towel to school with your child if they want to use it for the picnic lunch. In case of rain, the party will move indoors.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Order school supplies for your student today and save yourself the hassle of trying to find everything before the next school year starts. Plus, kits from EPI cost about 20% less than buying everything separately. Your student’s supplies will be waiting on their desk on the first day of school - how easy is that?! Don’t forget to order for the grade they will start in August. You can shop packs here using our school code: SHA082 (3 letters/3 numbers). Reach out to Kate with questions.
