    What a beautiful (but chilly) fall weekend! Our Fall Festive Colors day last Friday was such a great way to launch the holiday season. It has been so wonderful observing students engaged in the fun, themed, and creative classroom learning activities. Please be sure to ask your students about what they are learning and check out our school’s Facebook page for a glimpse into the fun! :)

    Classrooms have all completed fall benchmark assessments, and we are looking forward to meeting with our families during the upcoming conferences to discuss student progress. If you have not already, please be sure to connect with your child’s teacher to schedule an in person or Zoom conference.

    A couple reminders for review:

    1. Now that we are well into the fall and have settled into routines and procedures for the school year, it would be helpful for families to review a few items from the district’s 21-22 Student and Family Information Guide, specifically the sections regarding Academics, School Safety, and Students Rights and Responsibilities.

    2. Please remind students that toys and other non-essential school items should be left at home and not brought to school in the backpacks (unless the item is related to a teacher-directed class activity).

    3. Mask wearing -- We have been doing a GREAT job at Emerald Hills! However, it always helps to review/reteach in education so please take a few minutes to review with your child the CDC guidance linked into our district website to ensure the proper fitting of masks worn to school.

    Important Upcoming Dates for EHE:

    11/5 -- Cherrydale PTA Fundraiser packets go home with students (please see PTA Facebook page or the PTA website https://emeraldhillspta.memberplanet.com/ for more details)

    11/9 -- PTA Meeting

    11/11 -- Veterans Day (no school)

    11/12 -- Veterans "Video" Assembly for all students in the classrooms

    11/16 -- Picture retake day & Distance Learning Academy student picture day

    11/17, 11/18, 11/19 & 11/23 -- 12:15 early release for conferences (Report Cards will be provided to parents at in person conferences and sent home with students for Zoom conferences)

    11/24-26 -- Thanksgiving Break

    Nuts & Bolts

    • A Message from Miss G (music teacher): Veteran's Day is right around the corner! In the absence of an in person assembly, we are going to have a schoolwide viewing of a "Veteran's Day Presentation" shown in each classroom. All Lakers, students and staff, will have a chance to honor veterans that they are close to in this video. Please use this link (form closes Nov. 5): Veterans Day Google Form

    • To help with the wardrobe....we have ongoing weekly themed days for school spirit: Mondays -- Character Trait/Positive/Inspirational quote day, Wednesdays -- Laker Gear, and Fridays -- Blue Friday/Favorite Sports team/College day

    • The first Thursday of each month we will have a special “Spirit Dress-up” day as selected by our 5th grade leaders.

    From the District

    • School meals will continue to be provided to all students at no cost throughout the 2021-22 school year. While applications have not been required for children to receive free meals during the pandemic, we still strongly encourage eligible families to complete the Free and Reduced-price Meal Application as they may also qualify to have fees waived or reduced for ASB cards, sports participation and other extracurricular activities. For more information, contact Child Nutrition Services: (253) 891-6450, child_nutrition@sumnersd.org.

    • Registration is NOW OPEN: READY! REGISTRATION CLICK HERE

      • READY! for Kindergarten is a free program that offers age-appropriate targets, trainings and tools for parents and caregivers of children birth to age five that ensure children success in school.

    Thank you for your continued support of our school community. Our Laker Purposefull People Character Trait for the month of November is “Gratitude…Choosing to notice & appreciate things in our life, things in others, & things in the world.” Your follow up at home reinforcing your child as he/she demonstrates “gratitude” each day would be a wonderful home-school connection. The background for our Laker Purposefull People Character Traits can be accessed through the Character Strong website. Thank you for raising such amazing children that desire to be Purposefull People.

    Mrs. Scheerer, Principal
