Weekly Update for February 23-27

General Notes

The following message was sent by the District to parents/guardians last week.

To improve communication from school to home, we are rolling out a new notification system through Infinite Campus Messenger that can deliver critical information directly to your phone.  You’ll no longer need to rely on the media for important alerts about school closings, delays and event cancellations. However, this is not an automatic process – you need to opt in and choose your notification preferences: voice, text and/or email. Our students also have the option to receive notifications through a phone call and/or text; however you must add their phone number.  Please log in and make your notification updates before February 26 as we will be doing a system-wide test on that day.

Parents who do not yet have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account must set one up.  If you have any question please contact the office for set up help.  Parents who do not currently have a Parent Portal account or cannot remember their username/password can also contact the office.

Family Fare Cash for Class is happening this week. South participates in the program to earn money for our school.  Purchases made between February 15-February 21 with your “yes” car will automatically be credited to our school account.  The program is tied directly to your “yes” Rewards card.   You can choose up to two (2) schools to link your yes card.   Go to Cash for Class website to link your card to the schools of your choice. You only have to link your “yes” card once and you will not have to remember to tell the cashier during the event weeks – once you link your card – it will automatically calculate the donation for the school chosen.   In April 2015, schools will receive checks based on the percentage of all members’ purchases. Already a “yes” member but don’t have an on-line account set up? Just visit the yes website at Cash for Class , click on ‘First-Time to Site?’ and follow the steps to complete your on-line account registration. During the registration process, you will be able to link your school code (s).

Today is the second and final Count Day for the 2014/2015 school year.  The number of students in attendance will determine the amount Grandville School District will receive in per student state funding for programs, operations, teachers and other staff.

Please join us this morning for a PTC Meeting. The meeting will start at 9:00 a.m. and everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.  Many important school topics will be discussed at the meeting. Hope to see you there!!

The classroom Valentine Parties will take place today at the time set by each teacher. Thank you to our Room Parents for making this an exciting day for our students.   If you are planning to volunteer to assist with a classroom Valentine Party, please be sure to sign in and obtain a visitor sticker from the office .  As you know, your students’ safety is a top priority at South and it is important that staff be able to determine not only who is in the building, but where they can be found at all times.  Further, due to classroom sizes, the number of party volunteers, the use of hallways for party games, along with the fact that parties will be taking place at different times (i.e. some students will be receiving educational instruction while other class parties are ongoing), it is important that volunteers remain with the class for which they have volunteered.

Today is “B” 6th Grade Music Day.
