Spring Break runs April 3 - April 10
Students return to school on April 13
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.
As we head into the 4th quarter, please talk to your children about being responsible with their school work. If your child is eligible for the after-school tutoring program, please make sure he/she attends each day it is offered.
If you have not yet become involved in your Parent Group, consider attending the next meeting on May 6, 2015, at 9:30 am. Watch for information to come home about the Chuckie Cheese fundraiser coming up on April 24.
We want to remind our parents that the school day begins at 8:20 am. Students who are late getting to class are missing out on valuable instruction. When the weather is bad, we allow students to enter the building as they arrive so that parents can drop their children off at the usual time.
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.
