Spring Break runs April 3 - April 10
Students return to school on April 13
The anticipation of graduation is building for the Class of 2015. The 8th graders are looking forward to their trip to Great America on May 20, the Dinner Dance on May 22, and the graduation ceremony on May 28. We congratulate them and their families as they leave Kolmar and move on to high school.As we approach the end of the school year, we are reminded of how much they have accomplished in such a short time with us.
As quickly as the year ends, though, we look to the future. On May12, we will welcome the 6th grade students from Springfield School when they come to join our 6th graders as the Class of 2017. It is a wonderful way for them to get to know each other and to participate in an assembly to recognize the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who were active in the SSJHSC sports and academic activities.
Parent Group is busy planning for their own big end-of-year event. Field Day is scheduled for June 8. Consider joining us that day as a volunteer to help with the festivities. The next Parent Group meeting is May 6, at 9:30 am.
2015-2016 Kindergarten Registration is currently taking place in Kolmar's office. It is important for our future planning to let us know if you, your family, or your neighbors have an incoming kindergartener. Help us spread the word about registration. If you or they have any questions, please call the office at (708) 385-6747.
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.
