SchoolMessenger Message

Message from Sunday, 9/15/19

Good afternoon this is Jeff Hodakowski, principal of Viewmont Elementary, with some announcements.

For those that were with us last year, you were able to get an email along with the phone call.  Well, there is a Statewide issue with the email field populating and transferring into the messenger program.  At this time, we are not allowed to add emails and we are waiting on a fix from the State.   I will make sure that this message is posted to our school website and to the Viewmont PTA Facebook page for those that want to read the message.

Things in the parking lot are going pretty well.  This is a reminder to use the crosswalk near the flagpole to cross in the morning.  We do not want anyone walking between cars.  During afternoon dismissal, remember that the cars in the back row alternate as they turn into the middle row.   Please make sure that you do not enter through our exit driveway.  This is a huge safety issue.  Also, there is no smoking of any kind allowed on any part of our campus.  This includes while waiting in your car.   

If you are walking your child into the school in the morning, you will need to fill out a yellow badge and wear it where people can see. Students that arrive between 7:50 and 8:10 must go to the gym to wait.  Breakfast begins at 8:00.  Students are allowed to go to their room at 8:10.   Students that are car riders that want to eat breakfast should be on campus and in the cafeteria no later than 8:20.   

This is a reminder that students need to be at school until 11:40 in order to be counted present for the day.  Anyone trying to come to school after 11:40 will not be permitted to stay.   If your child has a 10:00 appointment, the child should come to school first and then be checked out for that appointment.   Doing it this way will allow the student to return after the appointment.

Don't forget to join our PTA.  The membership competition will end on October 1st.  PTA would also like me to remind you to save BoxTops.  There will be sheets sent home in October to place BoxTop labels on and send back to the school.   In the past, our school has earned close to $1000 from all of the BoxTops that were collected.  

Our first school spirit night will take place at Salsarita's on Tuesday, September 17th.  Anyone that eats there between 5:00-9:00 will contribute to our fundraiser.  Salsarita's will donate 10% of the sales during this time period, so please ask your friends and neighbors to come out and support our school.  Take out orders do count.

On Tuesday, September 24th, we will have our first PTA Meeting and our Open House.  This event will start at 6:00 in the gym. 

The Book Fair is coming.   The Book Fair will take place October 7th - 11th.  More information will come home in the next couple of weeks.    

Thanks and have a great evening!
