International Children’s Day

An excellent opportunity for our students and families, and they are looking for volunteers to help. Even if you aren’t available to help, come out and enjoy and learn:

International Children’s Day, organized by DFW International Community Alliance, offers students an opportunity to learn about global cultures while improving their communications skills and serving the community.

DFW is an international city where 44% of the residents are New Americans. International Children’s Day is a great way to connect and you can learn more about the event by visiting www.dfwinternational.org/Children. A list of projects is available by clicking on the ‘Program Details’ button.

 

We’re looking for additional volunteer groups to help us with these and other crafts:
– Mayan number game
– Coqui tiny frog puzzle from Puerto Rico
– Jaguar figure from Central America
– cowrie shell activity from Africa

 

Yes, we’re glad to sign student papers for ‘service hours’. If your community service / youth group would like to be a part of this event, please contact

International children's day 2014

Reminder: Last PTA meeting of 2013-14 school year

Please join us tomorrow, Tuesday 5/13, at 7 PM for the final PTA meeting of the school year. Elections for next year’s PTA board will be held during the meeting.

Field Day snack list

Hard copies are not available at this time.

Field Day is fast approaching!  It’s one of the events the students look forward to the most.  Because they use up so much energy, they need to have snacks throughout the events.  To help guarantee we have a large variety and healthy options for all students, we have put together a list of snacks by grade and ask that parents send them to school for Field Day, keeping in mind this is for all participants.  Non-perishable items can be sent any time prior to Field Day (May 9).  Perishable items (fruits and carrots) should be sent no earlier than the day before.   Water will be provided.  We also need volunteers to lend ice coolers/chests to store ice for the snow cone machine.  And, of course, parent volunteers for the events are always welcome.

 

Pre-K – individual snack-size bags goldfish crackers

Kinder – A – H: small apples

I – P: tangerines (e.g. Cuties or Haloes)

Q – Z : bananas

1st Grade – boxes of 100% fruit leathers (e.g. Simply Balanced (at Target) or Plum Kids)

2nd Grade – packages of individual snack-size bags of baby carrots
