Kolmar is busy preparing to honor our veterans on November 11.We have a number of displays in the halls dedicated to those who served our country. Students will have an opportunity to meet some of our local veterans and talk about their service experiences.
Student Council will be collecting non-perishable food items for its annual food drive from November 10 through November 21. Donations will benefit local food pantries.
Watch for information to come home about Parent Group's Family Game Night scheduled for November 13. If you have not yet become involved in your Parent Group, consider attending the next meeting on November 5, 2014, at 9:30 am.
Reminder: Wednesday, November 26 is an early release day with dismissal at 11:45 am.
As we head into the colder months, the number of student absences increases. Please remember to use the 24-hour attendance line (708-385-6747) to call in an absence for your children. If your phone number or emergency contacts have changed since registration, send a note to the school office so we can update your records, helping us to better serve your needs. If your phone number is not accurate, you will not receive the automatic school closing calls in the case of extreme weather conditions.
We have a safety tip from the bus company that might be helpful for all parents to know. When adjusting your child's backpack, you will notice that the excess strap hangs loosely from the bottom. That part of the strap can get caught in the doors of the bus or car as they close. Cutting that extra part off can reduce the chances that your child could get caught in the door as the vehicle pulls away.
Don't forget that every Wednesday AND the last Tuesday of every month is Kolmar Night at Kenootz Pizzeria. Just mention Kolmar School when you order and 25% of your sale comes back to our school.
Please go to the Midlothian School District 143 REGISTRATION page for all of the details.
