Dress code reminder
Please remember all shorts need to be fingertip length. If your student like to wear the athletic shorts that curve up on the sides or has slits, that is where the measurements will be taken from. Also, if your student wears any type of pants that does not have pockets on the back (yoga, leggings, etc.), shirts have to be long enough to cover the front and back areas. If you have any questions regarding a specific subject, please refer to the handbook or feel free to contact our office.
It’s that time of the year again to sign up for Parent and/or Student PTA!!! Please see the attached newsletter from our President, Fawn Barlow, and registration form for information. Let’s make this year another successful year for our PTA!!!
The PTA just launched an updated spiritwear ordering website. Please go visit the website to support your China Spring Cougars!
PTA General Meeting
China Spring PTA will be hosting a general meeting Wednesday, September 20th, at 6:00pm in the Intermediate Library. There will be a guest speaker to discuss Bullying. For the topics that will be discussed, please see below.
Bullying remains one of the most significant challenges in creating a safe and healthy learning environment for our children and this damaging behavior can have lasting effects on both the bully and victim. This program addresses:
- The nature and prevalence of bullying
- Strategies for parents, students and school staff to address bullying
- What works and doesn’t work in bullying prevention and intervention in schools
- Awareness of the laws
As many schools and communities search for an answer to this ongoing social issue, it’s important to remember that parents and students are the most effective tools in bullying prevention. Learn strategies for helping your students to properly identify bullying activity, and empower them to STAND UP and help create a culture of kindness and respect in their school.
WORLD WEAR COLLECTION BIN
It’s the beginning of a new school year, and we are excited about continuing our efforts with the World Wear Bin. While making room for the new clothes, shoes, and other items, please consider dropping off all your old belongings at the bin. China Spring Intermediate School receives a money for each pound that is donated. Please keep in mind that furniture is NOT accepted. So please make sure our playground and campus stays neat and clean by not dumping items in front of the bin. Thank you!
LOST & FOUND
We have many lunchboxes and water bottles on our lost and found table. Please encourage your student to check the table and hooks daily. We donate all unclaimed items at the end of every six weeks.
