In order to maintain the number of school days required for Shorecrest’s accreditation, school will be in session for half days on Friday, October 7 and Friday, November 4. Both days were previously scheduled as faculty professional days. They will now be half days for all students, Alpha-12th grade, understanding that families may have made previously scheduled commitments. Extended Day will be available for ES/LS both half days.

Milk Jugs
Ms. McCreary’s JK class is seeking gallon (milk/water) jugs for a special project! 
Their goal is 155! Please help them by thoroughly rinsing them out. Thank you in advance!

Visiting the Classroom
For Mystery Reader sessions and other volunteering opportunities at The Experiential School, parents should always contact the teachers in advance. Please read the weekly Schoology posts to learn about classroom projects and reach out to the teachers if you have any questions, or if you believe you can contribute in any way. Children at this age appreciate their schedules and routines, and some unexpected transitions become challenging. Let’s be mindful of the group, of teachers’ lesson plans, and also of how unexpected changes might impact the day.
All visitors must check in.

Lunch Visitors
If you plan on joining your child at lunch time, please let the teachers know in advance.
Parents are welcome to use the picnic tables next to the dining room for their special time with the children. Students will need to be checked out when you arrive and checked back in when they return to the classroom. 
All visitors must check in.
