Outdoor Recess Continues
The snow has begun to fall, and it is time to remember to send your child to school with a warm coat, hats, gloves, and boots when appropriate. When the wind chill is around 20 degrees or higher at 11:00, our students will have outdoor recess. All children are expected to go to recess, unless they have a medical reason that is preventing them from going outdoors. Recess is an important time of the day for students to have a free play break from the work of school as well as a chance for fresh air.
Walkers and Car Riders
It has recently come to my attention that we have students that are officially signed up as walkers, but in reality they are car riders. These students are leaving the building and walking to parent vehicles in the parking lot. These students are at risk because they are unsupervised as they are walking through unsafe places on their way to their pick-up vehicle. It is only a matter of time before there is an accident. It is for that reason that I am requesting that you choose one of the two options listed below.
Please sign in as a visitor and return to the office after lunch to sign out. Parents may not stay for recess.
No selfies or picture taking please.
If you and your child would like a friend from the same grade level to sit with you, please feel free to have them join you. Please limit it to just one extra student.
No outside fast-food please.

Box Tops and Campbell Soup Labels
Please save your Box Tops and Campbell Soup Labels! When you send them in be sure to trim them as indicated on the side and place them in a baggie with your child’s name and homeroom teacher or affix them to the leopard box top paper. If you have any questions please contact a member of the PTO.
Pop Tab Collections
The Nimishillen Grange is continuing to collect pop tabs for the Ohio State Grange Deaf and Hard of Hearing Committee. The money collected from recycling the tabs goes to several deaf schools in Ohio. Each class is challenged to collect the most tabs. The class with the most pop tabs will win a pizza party sponsored by the Grange. Total sheets are on display at both elementary buildings.
