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: Thank you in advance for supporting this ongoing lunch program at the First Baptist Church of Evanston. There are six donation dates in all, with each grade level assigned four dates. The next date is January 15 (K & 2nd grades). Download the attached document for specifics on this 20+ year tradition. (homeless lunch dates Note.docx)
JUNIOR GREAT BOOKS sessions begin this month. The 2nd-grade group will meet Tuesdays during lunch recess for 8 weeks, beginning on 1/29. Students will eat their lunches in the cafeteria beforehand. 3rd-graders will meet on Thursdays beginning 1/31, in the Learning Center DURING lunchtime. 3rd- grade participants are required to purchase the plate lunch on these days. Students may choose water or juice (no milk) with their lunches, and bagels with cream cheese are not permitted. This supports our regular food practices for Middlefork classrooms and reduces the chance of cross-contamination of school equipment.
2019-20 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION - NEW PROCEDURES:
Registration begins on 1/23/19, from 2-4:00 and 6-7:00 p.m. in the Middlefork lobby. All children should be five years of age by September 1, 2019, to be eligible for the 2019-2020 school year. The registration process begins with residency verification, which includes three different forms of documentation, as well as a copy of one's homeowner's or renter's insurance. This is true for ALL families, including those with older students presently registered in District 29. Additionally, parents or guardians of each prospective kindergarten student must provide the child's birth certificate (the school will make and retain a copy). Specific directions for the residency verification can be found under the Parent tab of this website. Lastly, the registration evening is for parents and guardians; the prospective student need not be present. Early enrollment figures are critical to staffing plans for the upcoming school year, so we appreciate everyone spreading the word and registering in January!


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!
