The Kolmar Staff wishes our families a Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a joyous and restful holiday with family and friends.
As we head toward the third quarter, talk to your children about being responsible with their schoolwork. If your child is eligible for the after-school tutoring program, please make sure he/she attends each day it is offered. As always, if you have any questions about your child's progress, don't hesitate to contact the teacher. Our second quarter Parent-Teacher Conference Day is coming up on February 11.
Reminder: There is no school on Monday, January 18 in honor of Martin Luther King.
As always, we owe our Parent Group a big "thank you" for all the hard work they do for us through the year. We invite you to join us for our next Parent Group meeting on March 9 at 9:30 am. To stay current on upcoming activities, friend your Parent Group on Facebook: Facebook.com/KolmarParentGroup.
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 you 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 packpack, 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 the car as they close. Cutting that extra part off can reduce the chances that your child could get caught in ther door as the vehicle pulls away.
Please go to the Midlothian School District 143 REGISTRATION page for all of the details.
