VETERANS DAY WALL OF HONOR: Star templates went home in backpacks the week of 10/29; additional copies can also be downloaded here. All students are invited to write a message on a star, bring it to school, and post it on the honor wall in time for the 11/11 holiday. Middlefork School Veterans’ Wall of Honor 2018.pdf


12 YEARS RUNNING, literally! If you are unfamiliar with Middlefork’s Post-Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, it’s quite simple. Just don your running/walking shoes on Monday, 11/26, and stop by the Middlefork big gym to exercise away those excess Turkey Day calories with your child(ren)! The individual grade level schedules are 1st grade 9-9:25; Kindergarten 9:35-10:00; 2nd grade 10:20-10:45; and 3rd grade 10:55-11:25 a.m.


ONLINE PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE SIGN-UP: Register for 11/19 conferences @ http://sunsetridge29.org/parents/fall_conference_registration. If you would like to schedule a conference with ALP teachers, Mrs. Brouilette and/or Dr. Pauls, please email them directly.


THE TEMPERATURE’S DROPPING...and that means chillier recess days and - oh yes - SNOW! So please make sure your child comes to school prepared. It’s easy to forget when one moves from a heated house to a heated garage and car, and finally a toasty school! It also helps when your child’s name is “sharpied” inside his/her clothes. The Lost & Found is already filling up! Here are the clothing parameters for recess  play when there is snow on the ground: students with snow pants, boots, coats, hats & gloves can play anywhere there is snow (fields, grassy areas, wood chips, play equipment). Without snow pants and/or boots, students are restricted to the cleared areas of the blacktop.


LUNCHES FOR THE HOMELESS: Our program begins again on Tuesday, 11/13. Thank you in advance for supporting this ongoing lunch program at the First Baptist Church of Evanston. And special thanks to Buggie O’Grady, Middlefork parent alum, for once again transporting the lunches to Evanston on Tuesday morning! There are six donation dates in all, with each grade level assigned four dates. Download the attached document for specifics on this 20+ year tradition. (homeless lunch dates Note.docx)
CELL PHONES IN THE DRIVEWAY: Drivers should cease using their cell phones during pick-up or drop-off time, when students are present on the sidewalk. We understand that some people arrive early, but once the students appear, the potential for distraction makes cell phone usage unsafe. Thank you for putting down your phones while there are children on the sidewalk!
