Lower School Reminders 9.14.21 (SAR)

September 14, 2021 Lower School News

Poppers and Gift Cards for Pediatric Cancer Patients: We will be collecting poppers and $10 gift cards to Subway and Tropical Smoothie Café for families impacted by childhood cancer. This is a school wide drive, and donations will be accepted all week. A special presentation will take place at Friday night’s home football game as well. For those who are interested in participating, donations can be dropped off at the Lower School Office all week.

Special Note:  Just a reminder that Homecoming was changed from Friday, September 17, to Friday, October 22. Therefore, there is no longer a half day of school this Friday but there will be a half day of school on Friday, October 22.

Individual Student Pictures:  Thursday, September 23, will be school picture day for SAR.  Students are to wear their regular campus wear for these pictures.

Campus Wear:  If you are still awaiting your child’s campus wear, please dress them in a plain top within our color scheme (black, white, green, pale yellow) and khaki, black, or gray shorts/pants/skirts. For P.E. days, please dress them in black athletic shorts and a plain gray t-shirt. Don’t forget that Fridays are Spirit Wear days and the students may wear jeans and a Ben Lippen t-shirt or their Land’s End P.E. uniform.

Morning Drop off and Late Arrival:  For the safety of the students, please utilize carline for drop off between 8:00AM and 8:17AM. Parents who wish to walk their children into the building may use the front office entrance. Students coming through the lobby must be accompanied by an adult. Any students arriving after 8:20AM must be signed in by a parent in the front office. Thank you for helping to make morning drop off smooth and safe for our students.

Note from our PTF:  Our Parent Teacher Fellowship would love your help with providing weekly snacks for our lower school faculty and staff to show them how much they are appreciated! If you are interested, please use the link below to sign up:  Thank you so much for your help and support!
