Once again we had a great turnout for Back to School Night. It was wonderful to see the delight on students' faces as they introduced their parents to the teachers, showed off their desks, and led their own version of a guided tour through the building with their families.
We also had a big turnout for Parent Group's first Family Movie Night. Moms, Dads, and Grandparents gathered with the kids to watch the Lego movie and snack on popcorn. There will be another opportunity to experience this positive family evening coming in February. Parent Group is also sponsoring our first ever Family Game Night on November 13. Watch for details to come home about that.
October is Fire Safety Month. The Crestwood Fire Department is sponsoring their annual fire safety poster contest and will be here to present mini-assemblies to our Kindergarten - 3rd grade students on October 6. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and students will be able to climb aboard the fire trucks!
We're looking forward to another great year at Kolmar. By working together, we can ensure positive academic success for your children.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to become involved in your Parent Group, consider attending the next meeting on November 5, 2014, at 9:30 am.

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.
