Open House-Callahan’s Open House will take place on Thursday, September 4, from 6-8PM.  Our Grade 2 & 3 parents will gather in the gym at 6:00PM for a presentation.  Our 4th and 5th grade families will meet at 6:30 in the gym.  After each session, parents will be invited back to your child’s homeroom for a brief presentation by the teacher.  Please remember that this is an open house in order to meet your child’s teacher, it is not designed for parents to have individual conferences.  If you need to meet with a teacher about your child, you will want to set up a meeting with his/her teacher.

BCI Check- If you have any intention of chaperoning a field trip, volunteering in school, volunteering at field day, etc., we are asking you to get your BCI check now.  This needs to be done every school year regardless if  you had one done the year before. Darcy Bouchard (WLC Parent Coordinator) will be on hand on Thursday night during our open house to answer any questions you may have as well as notarize the forms.

Student Paperwork- We would like to thank all of the families who have already turned all of their child’s paperwork.  For those who have not, please make sure you turn in all of your paperwork that went home on Wednesday of last week.  The district is encouraging all families to fill out the federal lunch form even if you do not intend on using it. The district is able to capture federal funding based on the information families provide to us on those forms.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

Primary Day- There is no school on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 due to the statewide primary. 

Callahan Picture Day-Creative Photography by Jeanne Hauser will be here to take our students’ pictures on Monday, September 29, 2014. Forms will be coming home later this month.

The reduced limit remains at -$3.50. If your child’s account goes over this amount they will have an alternate lunch of that consists of two sides, milk and a sunny butter and jelly sandwich.
