  • 03/12/2014 Drop-off and Pick-up


    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    Drop-off and Pick-up

    To help create a safe and efficient procedure for drop-off and pick-up, we are sending home a packet with a new number card for each family along with a few reminders about the process. If each person helps by following the procedure, we will have a faster and safer car pool line for students and families.

    Please review the procedures (see page 16 of the handbook) and use the number card for all pick-ups. This helps move the line along quicker. Thanks for your help!

    A few notes of importance:

    The car pool line is ONLY for parents dropping off or picking up students immediately. Once children are dropped off or picked up, please exit the car pool line.
    If you need to unbuckle children, get extra items out of the car, or take any extra time, please park and walk children to the entry area, using the crosswalk.
    Always pull forward as far as possible for all drop-off and pick-ups.
    Use the crosswalk area when walking to or from the parking lot.
    All children MUST walk with an adult. No child can run through the carpool lines to the lot.
    Students waiting to be picked up must wait in the south foyer of the school. This area is supervised by teachers for this purpose. Students should not wait in the church foyer for pick up.
    All students must be picked up within 15-20 minutes of dismissal. If you need to pick up your child later on a regular basis, please contact Jeff Wisdom to arrange for extended care.

    Please be patient and respectful of our neighbors and fellow parents/families and staff. We work hard to provide appropriate supervision and to move the carpool line as quickly as possible. By following the process, we can successfully clear the lot in adequate time.

    Thank you for your assistance in creating a safe and efficient space for our students each day. We appreciate your help!

  • 03/02/2014 Winter Conferences Time is Coming!


    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    "Encourage each other and build each other up".

    CONFERENCE TIME IS COMING - MARCH 12-13, 2014

    A key component of any successful school is the partnership with parents. We hold this as a priority and continue to seek ways to improve communication and expand the partnership.

    Twice a year, we take time off of school to host our parent teacher conferences. These are important and give us the chance to meet face to face and discuss each child's progress along with ways to keep learning and growth going.

    This winter, we are offering two evening conference sessions to better accommodate schedules of working families. Please make time to schedule a conference with each child's teacher. You can access the online sign up to schedule time. We look forward to seeing you then.

    S-A-D-I-E!!

    Congratulations to our own local super speller, 7th grader, Sadie R.

    Sadie qualified for the 2014 Minnesota Seven County Metro Area Regional Spelling Bee. There are only 45 school champions from the entire metro area who qualified based on results from a challenging online exam.

    Sadie scored a perfect score on the spelling portion of the exam by correctly spelling words including: azure, blitzkrieg, carnivore, gynarchy, maladroit, and oratorio.  Examples of vocabulary words that Sadie was able to define correctly included: aggregate, barrio, meticulous, pacifism and hedonism.

    The 2014 Minnesota Seven County Metro Area Regional Spelling Bee will be held on Saturday, March 15 at Augsburg College.  The champion of this Bee and one parent will win an expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the 2014 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

    Congratulations Sadie!

  • 02/05/2014 Living Our Theme


    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    “So encourage each other and build each other up.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

    We continue to live our theme this year and encourage each other in many ways:

    Supporting each other in the classroom and learning
    Noting people’s skills and unique talents
    Reminding each other that we are special in God’s eyes
    Cheering each other on in competition and hard work
    Teaching and modeling for others
    Saying “hello” and valuing each person
    Welcoming all who come to our school
    Holding each other to high standards

    As part of our caring and vibrant community, this theme is central to our success. This week, the teachers attended a workshop on creating a positive school climate. We were reminded of ways we can work together and support each other, as well as our students, holding each other to high standards to create the best school environment.

    The teachers will be carrying this into the classroom to help students in their actions to support each other and create this positive learning environment. You can also help by reminding them of the importance of their “job” at school – to listen, to learn, to be respectful, and to work hard. When we all work together, great things happen!

    We are excited to continue this work with our students to live our mission of nurturing each child’s spirit to achieve their full potential. Thank you for all the help you give us in making our mission come alive at Annunciation School.
