EAST ELEMENTARY NEWS & NOTES
WALK for HUNGER! This is a win-win opportunity. PTC has teamed up with the Fairfield Food Pantry. Join our East Team as we walk to fight hunger. For every East family member that registers, our PTC will get a small kickback. Last year, the Fairfield Food Pantry gave out almost 10,000 large paper bags of emergency food supplies to local families in our city and township. They work very hard to raise funds throughout the year to buy the food to distribute among these families. This 5K Walk for Hunger is their biggest fundraiser in which they earn about $10,000 on an average. This is a huge help in sustaining the pantry and keeping the doors open to families in need throughout the year. That's why your help is so important to all of us!
Our theme for this school year is CHAMPS. The overall goal of the CHAMPS building and classroom management system is to develop and instructional structure in which students are responsible, motivated, and highly engaged in the specific task at hand. CHAMPS is an acronym for the following:
C - Conversation
H - Help
A - Activity
M - Movement
P - Participation
S - Success
We have established CHAMPS expectations throughout the building. Check out the posters the next time you visit. Ask your child about CHAMPS!
Most of you are familiar with our building theme of 5-2-1-0. This theme represents positive healthy choices that each of us can make daily in our school and home. The concept is very easy! Each day we strive for 5 fruits and vegetables, 2 hours of screen time (or plug-in time), 1 hour of exercise, and 0 carbonated or sugary beverages!
Each quarter we will focus on one of the components.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: When picking up a child at dismissal you must park in a parking space. The Fire Lane is reserved for emergency vehicles only. If you are ticketed, the fine will be costly! This is a safety concern. Cars are pulling out while families are trying to cross the parking lot to get to their cars. Please be responsible and park ion a parking space.
