Winter Party Sign-Ups
Ledgeview students will celebrate the winter holiday break on Tuesday, December 20 from 2:00-2:45pm. We ask that parents who attended the fall celebration allow other parents a chance to sign-up for their child's class party. Please note that if you sign-up to send in a snack that this does not mean you are attending the celebration. You must complete both the sack sign-up and the attendance sign-up if you would like to send in a snack AND attend the celebration.

There will be hundreds of gifts for children to choose from with presents available for Moms, Dads, Grandparents, siblings, friends, Aunts, Uncles, teachers and pets. Hope to see you there!
 
 
Awesome Obstacle Course
Ledgeview students would like to thank the PTA for painting an obstacle course for our students on our black top. Students have already enjoyed running the course and it will bring more joy as we get into the winter months and need to stay on the black top. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and effort to make our school a happier place for our students!

Join PTA
Our PTA does A LOT of great things for the students, teachers and families here at Ledgeview. For those of you that do not know, our beautiful playground and shade structure are the result of PTA fundraising and organizational efforts. Please show your support by officially joining this great organization. Membership envelopes will becoming home with your child or you can go to PTA Membership Information Link for more information.
 
Dismissal Procedure Changes
Due to safety concerns and traffic problems on Shepard Road there have been changes to our dismissal procedures as follows:

Back Door Carpool: Families who are ineligible for bussing must pick up their children using the back door carpool lane. These families have been issued new car tags. Students have been issued matching bag tags. THE WINDOW TAGS MUST BE DISPLAYED in the front window of your vehicle on the passenger side of your car in order to pick up your child from the car pool lane.

Cars will not be allowed into the back parking lot until 3:05PM.

Children waiting for pick up will wait inside the gym entrance doors in the back parking lot. Staff will call students by their car tags, and they will be escorted out the door to their cars.

Voluntary Parent Pick Up: Families who are eligible for bussing but choose to pick up their students from school must pick up their child at DOOR 2 in the front of the school. Parents will need to park in the front lot and come to DOOR 2. Please remember cars are not allowed in the bus lane at the end of the school day. Adults will need to show Photo ID to pick-up their child. Students will be called to the door from the inside hallway to leave with the appropriate adult. Students will not be released to an adult who is not listed on the new information card.
 
Box Tops Competition
Box Top Competition has begun! Each class teacher was given Box Top Collection Sheets to pass out to the students last week.

The competition will be per grade. For every 3 sheets brought in the grade level will be given a leaf on the bulletin board. The tree (grade) with the most leaves by winter break will receive a special prize! For every sheet turned in with student's name, that student will be entered into a monthly drawing (drawn at the PTA Meetings) for a gift card.

Happy Collecting!

If you have any questions please contact Kelly Toth (competition) or Julia Henderson (submission/collection)

Afternoon dismissal time starts at 3:15. Car pool students will leave their classroom at 3:15 and go directly to the car pool area. Parents authorized to use the Car Pool line - please be sure your pick up card is easily visible in the front windshield, so it may be seen from a distance – the higher the better.

Volunteer to Help With COSI
COSI on Wheels is coming to Ledgeview Friday, December 16. Volunteers are needed to work the activity stations throughout the whole day, with shifts being split into morning (8am-12pm) and afternoon (12:15pm-3:15pm). We would love to have anyone that is willing and able help for the whole day as well, with lunch provided. Each volunteer session starts with volunteer training by the coordinator from COSI and there are also written instructions provided at each table. We can only offer the students as many stations as we have volunteers to staff, so the more the merrier!

After an all-school introduction assembly in the morning, students will return in groups of 2-3 classes for 30 minute timeslots with the hands-on stations. If you'd like to coordinate your volunteer shift with a specific student's timeslot, the schedule looks like this:

Morning classes: Merrill, Occhionero, Pylypiak, Roskoph, Schroeder, Maher, Victor, Dulin, Cottrell, Cutright

Afternoon classes: Stanley, Dangler, Kerns, McMillan, Kotecki, Campbell, DiGennaro, Schroeter, Stagliano, Iskra, McComas

If you are able to help for the whole day please sign up for both a morning and afternoon slot on the signup genius.
