OCTOBER 2012 CALENDAR & NEWSLETTER
Conscious Discipline update...We have completed our first two modules of Conscious Discipline with parents, students and staff. Students are implementing self-monitoring techniques and reminding their teachers to do the same :) Please ask your children to share this information with you if you are unable to attend these meetings. The next module will be Encouragement on Wednesday, October 10th. Parents can attend at 2:45 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. Babysitting will be provided.
PUMPKIN PATCH FESTIVAL...Verdi Elementary Pumpkin Patch Festival is Sunday, October 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is the school's biggest fundraiser. You will see requests from your child's teacher asking for donations to the class basket for silent auction and a donation of 1 to 2 hours of your time to help make this festival a success. And, when preparing goods for the Bake Sale, please label the items that may have nuts. Be sure to invite your family and friends as this is an event you will not want to miss!
Morning Bells ...We had to make some adjustments to the morning bell schedule. Bells in the morning will ring at 9:10 for the students to line up and then again at 9:15 for the students to be in their seats ready to go. Students will have the option to run/walk a lap for the 100 lap club at their last recess at 2:15 p.m.
Verdi Library ...We need your support in helping to keep the Verdi Public Library open. Currently the public hours of the library are Wednesdays 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday's 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We would like to ask if you and your children could stop by during this time and check out books. The attendance will help us to keep our public library open! Thank you for your support!
Flyers and Notices ...We had a suggestion from one of our newest family members here at Verdi Elementary to send all flyers and notices home to only the oldest child in each family so there is not a waste of paper and families receiving two or three notices for the same thing. There will be an occasion when we will need to send a flyer home with each child, however, we have begun this practice, so please be sure to always check your children's back pack for important information. This is a great way to promote keeping our environment green.
Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows ...Need time to holiday shop or just a few hours to yourself? Just a reminder that Verdi provides an excellent before and after school program.
