Thanks to everyone who came out to Orientation last week!  We know it's hard to do after-school meetings, but we hope you all feel more informed now about what this year will look like for your student.

Kids First Coupon Book Sale - This annual fundraiser begins FRIDAY!  We will have a pep rally Thursday afternoon before dismissal to tell the kids what prizes are in store for them and they will all come home with a flyer about the sale and a list of the coupons in the book.  They will also have a baggie and an order form inside it.  Please, please send money in ONLY in a baggie or envelope with that form completed so our bookkeeping and distribution is accurate.  Students can turn in money in the Gym or Auditorium in the mornings before school - teachers will not be collecting it during class.  Books will come home the afternoon that money is brought in - we will not send books home that have not been paid for.  Our goal is to sell 1450 books this year and raise some much-needed funds for our building!  Thank you for your support with this.

Join the PTA - Your student should have brought home (or will have today) a yellow form where you can join our CSLA PTA.  Cost is only $5 for an individual or $10 for an entire family.  There's a pizza party and a gift card for the teacher waiting on the class with the highest participation in K-4th and 5th-8th!  Our PTA is so involved in our school and your membership helps ensure they can do more supportive and community-building activities throughout the year!

PTA's Donuts with Grown-Ups - Save the date for the morning of Thur, Aug. 29th to come to school with your kiddo and have a sweet snack while mingling and getting to know other families.  More info coming this week!

NO SCHOOL - Labor Day, Mon, Sept. 2

HALF-DAY - Wed, Sept. 4 is our first half-day for students as the district has added extra planning time for our teachers.  Dismissal will be around noon and buses will run normal routes - just earlier.  Aftercare will be available until 6pm if you are registered for it (that form is on the website under For Parents > Forms).

Car Tags - This is the last week to get an extra tag for free.  After next week they will cost $1 each.  Anyone picking a student up in the car line OR from the sidewalk must have a CSLA-issued tag.  Email me if you need one.  If you do not display a tag in your car, you will be asked to come to the Office to sign out your student.  Please don't assume every teacher knows who you are - this is for your students safety!

Volunteer Opportunities - Slots for softball concessions and helping PTA with Donuts with Grown-Ups are now posted.  Slots to volunteer at school are on there for two weeks at a time and the next week is always added on Friday.  Look under For Parents > Volunteer Opportunities or go to the quick link on the home page that says Volunteer.

New Air Conditioners - Hooray to the Ham Cnty Maintenance Dept who put in several new air conditioning units in our building this week.  They are making a world of difference!  If you ever see one of these fine fellows in our hallways, please thank them for all they do for us - they are so good to CSLA!

Have a great week!
