Parent Newsletter 12/3/18

Happy December and welcome to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! As always, PLEASE check the calendar for up to date information on the happenings at Mt. Loafer. 

 A HUGE shout out to our PTO on an excellent job with the book fair as well as parents and pastries. Such a fun event and one we love having our families out to participate in. We hope you were able to enjoy yourselves and maybe even get a little holiday shopping done during the last week. 

Keep collecting box tops! We will have a drive coming up SOON and we want you ready to participate. BoxTops are a great way for our school to earn money to support teachers, classrooms and ultimately students. 

Do you shop Amazon frequently and want to help out Mt. Loafer Elementary? Next time you order online (sorry app users, it works on browsers best!) simply type smile.amazon.com and follow the instructions to choose Mt. Loafer Elementary as a recipient for donated monies. Simple. Easy. Helps Kids! What a Win! 

Please help your children dress appropriately for the weather. When it is 20 de-grees or above, students are expected to go outside for recess. Please write your chil-dren’s names in their coats and jackets—this really helps with lost clothing. You may also want to visit the lost and found bucket in the front entry way this week. All items left will be donated at the start of the Christmas Break. Thank you.

We would also like to ask you to remind our students that although it is fun, we do not slide on the hill during school hours. We reserve ONE day out of the year to sled at Mt. Loafer and other than that we ask students to stay off the hill as well as any snow mounds that may be plowed on our playground. This is for the safety of the students. Also remind them that we do not throw snow and ice at school. We have already had a few minor injuries from careless behaviors. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT in reminding the kids of our “snow rules!” 

Christmas Movie- On December 19thour school will be taking buses to Stadium Cinemas in Payson where we will viewing the NEW Grinch movie. This is our Christmas gift to all students. If your choose to keep your student home during this day and event please call the office and excuse them. This will help us track both accurate attendance as well as give us an accurate count for the movie theater.
