Dear Parents/Guardians,

Progress Reports were electronically posted on Friday to skyward.

WLC Teacher Appreciation Week is Monday, May 6-Friday, May 10 with Teacher appreciation day falling on that Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Please take a moment that week and thank the great teachers we have here at Callahan.

Please Mark Your Calendars….

Reading Week 2019- Reading week 2019 will be held from May 13-May 17. Please see the attached for the daily themes for that week.

Slogan Contest-Has your child come home trying to think of a great slogan to represent W.L.C.? We are asking each homeroom to come up with slogan that will be motivational and inviting to be hung in our gymnasium. Once each homeroom submits a slogan one will be chosen and the winning slogan will be announced at the end of the year assembly. We can't wait to see what great ideas our students can come up with!

Spring Grounds Cleaning- On Wednesday, May 8, 2019 we will be holding our second annual Spring Cleaning at Callahan. Help us weed the gardens and trim the hedges. Last year were done in a few hours. Please feel free to drop in and help us on that afternoon. Bring the kids! For more information please contact Mrs. Costa at costab@bsd-ri.net

Please remember that there will be plenty of opportunities for parents and guardians to volunteer at all of the end of year events. If you intend on volunteering you need to have a BCI on file from this school year (not calendar year). By state law a parent/guardian has to have one completed each school year in order to volunteer in school or on field trips. If you want to help out please do not wait until the last minute to get your BCI check finished.

Negative Lunch Balance-The negative balance policy is in effect. The new negative balance limits for full pay students is - $19.50 this price reflects the new increase allowing full pay students to charge up to five breakfasts and five lunches.
