Other Items of Interest:

Not Feeling Well? - We greatly appreciate the effort that it takes to get your child up and here on time. We often hear from students, "My mom/dad said that I could try it, and if I didn't feel better to come see Teacher Libbet and I could go home." It really helps us at school if you reassure your child that they will feel better once they get to school and the day will fly by and they'll be home before they know it. Our TLC policy is 1) take their temperature 2) lay down for 5 min, 3) if it's tummy ache, then maybe a Tums or Ginger Ale for nausea, and then back to class. IF your child started the day with a complaint to you, give US a heads up and we'll keep an even closer eye on them than we already do. We promise to call you if we feel that they are ill. Usually the only way to make a child feel better when they've been told they can call Mom/Dad if they are sick, is to call and send them home. Attendance is crucial - you can't "make-up" labs and class discussions, so learning is OPTIMAL when students are in the classroom.

Library Books - We are still missing many library books - thanks for helping them come back in!

Act 46 Study Committee - The committee will be meeting again this Wed., Jan. 18, from 6:30 - 8 PM at the WCSU Central Office. Hope you'll join us!

Do You Know An RES Alumni? - Our library media/tech classes are conducting a survey and creating a digital living history to represent the past and present of Reading Elementary School and we need your help!   Did you attend Reading Elementary School?  Do you know someone who did?  If you did, then please complete the survey and ask other alumni, to complete the attached SURVEY. Students will be researching their town and school history and preserving it digitally. Check out what we've done so far at RES PAST AND PRESENT.
