School Talk – Week of Sept 19th

Priest River Elementary

Our Fall Fundraiser is here!  Students will be bringing home their fall fundraiser packets this week.  Funds raised will touch all of our children as it is through this fundraiser that our PTO is able to support so many happenings here at PRE.  These funds help us keep our equipment up to date, help with field trip funding and also help fund specific classroom or grade-level needs such as purchasing specific supplies or curriculum.  We will have our First Grade Open House on Wednesday (9/21) at 5:30. Teachers will share first grade expectations and effective ways parents can help their children develop important skills at home.  We will have our first Site Council meeting this Thursday (9/22) at 2:35 in our cafeteria.  Looking ahead: the week of 10/3 marks mid-quarter and progress report week.  School pictures will take place on 10/4 and 10/5 Enjoy your week.

Idaho Hill Elementary

We would like to thank all of those who so generously donated school supplies to Idaho Hill Elementary. We are blessed! Thank you.  We would also like to remind those of you who signed up to volunteer, of our Volunteer Orientation set for September 27th. There will be 2 orientation times to choose from, so pick the time that best serves your needs: 8:00 a.m. or 6:00 p.m. This important meeting is to help volunteers be more effective as well as acquaint them with proper procedures regarding confidentiality, and expectations. If you have any questions, please contact Angela Tuttle at 437-4227.

Priest Lake Elementary School had a fantastic turn out to our PTO BBQ and Open House. We had two guest readers at our Open House reading " Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" - which encourages positive behavior through kindness, appreciation, and love on a daily basis. Thank you all for your support to our school and honoring your children in attending. There will be a PTO Meeting on Thursday at 2:45 in the Library - everyone is invited. We have completed the IRI testing for our Kindergarten through Third grade students. Thank you for returning all the beginning of year paperwork - we are still missing a few pages if you could please return them ASAP that would be very helpful.
