August Behavior Celebration

Tomorrow, September 1, will be our first behavior celebration!  Students who have earned at least 19 smiley faces on their behavior sheets are invited to bring a junk food snack and watch a movie with us from 12:30-2:00pm.  Students who have not met the expectation will be attending study hall to work with a teacher on skills they need to build up.  Students were reminded today that a new month starts TOMORROW!  If they didn’t earn the reward this month, they can start fresh in the morning!  We hope to see many more students in our reward at the end of September!  Keep up the hard work!

College Spirit and Hat Day!

This Friday, September 1, will be college spirit day in honor of the beginning of college football season!  Students are encouraged to wear their favorite college shirt or jersey to celebrate.

 

Also, we have decided to join together as a Pitner family to help those families who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.  Friday will also be a hat day to raise money that we will donate to the Red Cross and Salvation Army to support rescue and clean-up efforts in Texas.  A minimum of $1 donation is required to wear a hat on Friday, but larger donations are always welcome!  We hope to use this opportunity to teach all our Pitner students the benefit of thinking about and helping others.

 

Thank you!

Early Release Day

Wednesday, August 30 will be an early release day for CCSD students.  Elementary schools will begin dismissal at 12:05pm.  Please be sure your student knows how he or she is getting home on this day.  Also, be sure to provide the school with a handwritten note if your child’s transportation is changing, on Wednesday or any other school day.  Thank you in advance!

Eclipse Update

This weekend, Pitner received information from the county that the solar eclipse glasses purchase for our students may not be verified by the manufacturer.  Therefore, no Pitner students will be allowed outside during the eclipse on Monday.

 

We will still be dismissing 45 minutes late at 3:00pm, and students will still be excused from school with a note that they were viewing the eclipse with family.  Please make the decision that works best for your family.

Thursday Folders and Eclipse Updates

Thursday Folders

Thursday folders will be coming home in earnest today.  Please be sure to look through all of the papers in the folder, return the signed forms, and remove any other papers from the folder before returning the folders to school tomorrow.

 

Eclipse Updates:

We will be providing eclipse glasses for students who have a signed permission form to view the eclipse on Monday.  Students who do not have signed permission slips will be able to view a live stream of the eclipse in the Media Center.  We will be outside or viewing the live stream from 2:15-2:45pm.  Dismissal will begin at 3:00pm.  Also, per CCSD policy, this day will be an EXCUSED ABSENCE with a note that your student was out to view the eclipse with family and friends.

Open House

Please join us TONIGHT from 6-8pm for Open House!  5th grade will be meeting in room 007, which is across the hall from Dr. Hosey’s office and the Music Room.  Come see your teachers and learn about 5th grade!  We hope to see everyone there!
