Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the “Newcomer Welcome and PTA meetings last night. It was great to see so many of you there! I want to thank the PTA for all that they do to help make Capitol Hill such a great school! We all benefit and appreciate the PTA’s support.
I also want to thank our many volunteers that have helped us to get the new school year started. From the volunteers on Community Care Day to getting the Bus Tags done to help in the Cafeteria, as well as classroom volunteers --we couldn’t do it without you, so thank you!!!
The students are doing a wonderful job of falling into routine. It’s never easy to get back into the school habits and I’m sure you’ve had some tired children. It appears that they are adjusting well to being back at school. They have also done a really great job with the new recess/lunch routines!
Routines for the bus and parent drop-off/pick-up are working well. Please click on the link to our procedures, if you are unsure of the preferred procedures. Please remember not to use the Spring Garden bus area as a drop off. Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe.
Each year we review our Safety Procedures. We take a mandatory online Emergency Preparedness training and discuss safety procedures monthly. Additionally, each month we are required to hold different drills. We have already done our first Fire/Evacuation Drill and we will hold a Lock-down Drill before the end of the month. On October 20th, we will participate in the “Great Shake-out.”
Please join me on the third Friday of the month for “a cup of jo with Joy” from 8:00 - 8:30.
