Families of Somers Elementary,

I’ve got some importation information to share, please read carefully as there are action items to prepare for next year.

Online registration is open.  Every family must register for the 2018-19 school year.  During this process you will input updated information for your student.  Once done, your student will be added to Somers’ 2018-19 roster.  If you are registering a 4K or Kindergartner, complete enrollment in our office.  Please take time to complete registration using the following link.

Next week we will conduct a school-wide ALiCE drill.  We believe in teaching safety and practicing ways to stay safe.    Our goal is to inform using calm, instructional strategies.  I encourage you to have conversation with your child.

Reading is celebrated every day…and in a big way this month as we hold “Reading Across America” in the LMC on Friday, March 9th.  We are partnering with United Way on Tuesday, March 13th and have invited “Readers are Leaders” guests into class to share books.  Be sure to clean out your bookshelf and send your student with a few books to swap on Tuesday, March 13th during our school-wide BOOK SWAP.

At family conferences, your child’s teacher may have recommended him/her for summer school.  Somers students attend Harvey Elementary for summer school.  It runs June 20th through July 24th, 8:00-12:00 daily.  Online registration opens March 19th, and will find the link on KUSD’s webpage.

The SSC holds its monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 13th from 6:00-7:00 in the LMC.  We are doing great things for all kids….PLEASE join us!

Butter Braid forms are due Thursday, March 15th and pick up is Wednesday, March 21st from 4:00-6:00 pm.

Somers night at Monkey Joe’s is Thursday, March 22nd from 5:00-7:00.  FUN!

End of quarter 3 is on Thursday, March 22nd.  There is no school on Friday, March 23rd as teachers prepare progress reports.

Our next feather event is Monday, March 26th.  Ask your child how s/he is earning feathers.

Monday, March 26th is our Kindergarten and First Grade music program.  We will perform at 2:00 for the school, and 6:30 for families.

Spring Pictures are Tuesday, March 27th.

Spring Break begins Friday, March 30 (no school) through April 8th.  We return to school Monday, April 9th.  ENJOY your time…and let’s hope for some warmer weather.

As always, stop in if you have comments or concerns.
