Parents continue to communicate about pick up time on Glenarm, Teachers are asked keep on the lookout for students who need help and situations that could present danger to our students like getting in the wrong car, interaction with people who are not part of Polaris, ensuring all students are picked up. There have been some requests to make the pick up a “line”. This presents problems since all students aren’t ready at the same time. The process is more like the airport pick up—pull in and pull out carefully being mindful and courteous. It’s great for cars to move north as allowed, and if there are empty spaces, cars can also carefully move in. Also like airport pickup, there is no double “parking”. We have a staff member on the corner of 22nd so students who need to cross Glenarm or 22 should be head down to those corner. Thank you for all you do to keep students safe!
A huge thank you to Stephanie and Paul Falcone, Meaghan and Reed Elliot, Tim and Lori Kirkland, Amy and Frankie Newman, Meg and Jeb Freedman, Eric Rasmussen, and Sara Baack for hosting the grade level socials. The parties were a fantastic chance for parents to get to know one another in a relaxed setting. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know parents as well. They were also a great opportunity to become informed about the Polaris Annual Fund. The Annual Fund monies are instrumental in stretching the Polaris budget. They have allowed us to purchase extra materials, technology, exciting educational experiences, and additional para time which reduces the adult to student ratio. If you have not already made your gift, please contact Vanessa Pierce, our fundraising chair to make your contribution today. Polaris students are counting on you!
A letter from our superintendent, Tom Boasberg, came in last week’s Thursday folders. It outlines what items for Polaris are included in the mill levy proposal. I encourage you to read it in order to be informed. Thank you for your attention to these important issues. If you have additional questions, please visit bond.dpsk12.org or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
You are probably already planning for Halloween! The parade will begin at 2:15. More info about the parade will come in a separate email.
- All costumes should be “G-Rated”.
- Please apply fake blood to costumes ahead of time and ensure that it does not drip.
- Absolutely no weapons (real or fake)!
- We welcome costumed parents and family, but please no adult masks.
- Please remember we have little ones, so nothing too scary!
I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
Happy Fall Everyone!
