Ms. Whitby and Ms. Magri need help with judges for the science fair! We would appreciate ANY HELP from parents in judging the 100 projects in the MPR. Each one has to be judged 3 times, so it’s basically 300 projects that need to be judged.
The projects can be judged any time during the day until the building closes in the evenings. We are starting the judgment process TODAY through Thursday morning.
Have you been too busy to buy your student’s yearbook dedication? We’ve got the best news! The deadline to buy has been extended and you have until Wednesday, March 8th!
Yearbook dedications are a great way to thank a teacher, shout out to friends and classmates or to tell your child how proud you are of them.
Dedication forms are available online at http://www.herodpto.org/forms/
Friday, March 10, 2017, is Herod’s Annual Field Day. It’s a day of fun and games in the sunshine for all Herod students. We will need many volunteers! Pre K-5 will play games from 9 am to 12 pm and will receive snow cones at the conclusion of the games. The lunch break will be from 12 to 1 pm. From 1 to 2:45 pm, the Herod teachers will compete against the 5th grade students to see who will claim victory in a game of kick ball, while the rest of the students will cheer from the sidelines!
Parent volunteers are needed to help with the following:
• setting up the games from 8 to 9 am
• helping the teachers move the kids through the games from 9 am to 12 pm
• filling the water dispensers on the field, possibly including a run to the store for ice mid-morning
• serving snow cones to the kids from 11:30 am to 1 pm
If you are able to help with your child’s class, please contact your room parent. If you are able to help with the morning set up, serving snow cones, or keeping the water dispensers full, please contact Natalie Johnston at email@example.com, with the time you are able to help. This is a very fun day for the kids and your help is greatly appreciated!
Please make sure your child wears sunscreen since the games will be played outside. Please have your child wear his/her class field trip t-shirt.
