kindergarten makes blanketsKindergarten students have been working on showing “compassion in action”, which is one of the focus areas of the Choose Love Movement our district has adopted.  Before vacation kindergarten students worked together on a service project to make a total of 11 cozy, fleece blankets. These blankets will be donated to Project Linus, which provides homemade blankets to children in need.  Our blankets are warm and decorated in fun patterns. We know they will bring comfort and happiness to the children who receive them! 

 

Electronic Devices

We have had an increase in students using their cell phones during academic times so I wanted to remind everyone of our policy here at I-LES regarding electronic devices.

“Students are discouraged from bringing electronic devices to school however; there may be occasions when teachers allow students to use electronics in the classroom. This will only occur under direct supervision of the teacher. Students are not allowed to use electronic devices on the playground”  or at the beginning and end of the day (parent pick-up, in line for the bus, in the MPR)

If your child needs to check his/her phone at some point during the day to know where they are going after school, when they will be picked up, etc..they can ask their teacher to do so.

The best way to change end of day transportation for your child is to call the front office, we would be happy to pass along the information!

Thank you as always for your support; I know we all want our awesome kids focused on their learning and engaged in class!

Next PTO Meeting - Jan 9

We know everyone has a lot going on this time of year, which is why we didn’t schedule a meeting or an event during the month of December. Nevertheless, we will be right back at it once the New Year starts. Please put this date on your calendar now to ensure you’ll be able to make it. We have a lot of important things to discuss, including planning for our new Adult Paint/Craft Night fundraiser. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 9 at 7 pm in the I-LES Art Room. Childcare will be provided. If you know that you cannot make it in person and will need to join the meeting remotely, please email pto@interlakes.org and we will make sure to set up a web conference for you.

 

food drive

Students in grades PK-6 are asked to contribute to the annual food drive sponsored by Student Leadership. This food drive runs from now until December, 13th and items will be donated to the Meredith Food Pantry. Non-perishables (stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, etc.) will be collected and used to benefit the needy this holiday season.

In the past, students at Inter-Lakes Elementary School have collected close to 2000 items in cans and boxes. Please help us by sending in non-perishables with your child(ren) or drop off your donations at the I-LES office.

Thank you for your contributions!
