Puppy Dog News
February 24, 2014
We continue to work to get caught up from our second round of snow days. Your student should have received a letter telling you about the upcoming make-up schedule for the rest of this school year. That information can also be found on the Johnston County Schools website.
Other news and updates for our school listed below.
· Tuesday, February 25 - Spirit Night from 5:00 – 8:00 at the McDonald’s in Selma. A percentage of the sales (including the drive through) during that time will go toward helping our school. Students should sign up once they get there – the class with the most participation will get a cake & ice cream party. We hope to see you then!
· PTA - Tuesday, March 4 at 6:30 in the cafeteria. In addition to our informational business meeting, we will have student performances and give out door prizes.
· Progress Reports for the third nine weeks will go home on March 5. Report cards for the third nine weeks will go home on April 21.
· Saturday, March 8, will be the “Xander Run”, a 5K/1 Mile Run/Walk to raise money for the Pond Family during Xander’s battle with cancer (Ewings sarcoma). Xander is a third grade student at our school who fights cancer each day. For more information you can pick up a flyer here at school or visit “Strength for Xander” on Facebook.
· In our support for Xander and his family, we will have a pep rally at 2:30 on Friday, Feb. 28, here at Princeton Elementary. We are asking the children to dress up as their favorite superhero, or in the Xander Run colors of Red, Blue & Yellow. School dress code still applies.
· Spring Pictures – April 9, 2014. More information will go home next month.
· Please help us to keep our students and staff safe by refraining from cell phone use while driving on campus, especially when going through the car line to drop off or pick up students. We appreciate your help with this.
