 Dear Parents,

We are asking for some help with our handicap parking spots. From an outside view it looks like they are empty most of the time, but due to the nature of these spots they serve an important function at our school. These spots are used each day to help parents who have children with handicaps gain easier access to our school building. These are not for regular school pick up and drop off. By keeping these spots available for our patrons with handicaps we are ensuring that these students have a safer experience when being picked up or dropped off at school.

STEM FAIR: This week we sent home information for our STEM FAIR. It is open for all Cascade students to participate in. Only 5th and 5th graders will be allowed to move on to the district and the state levels. Attached is additional information on what our STEM FAIR will be. 

This month our theme is Being Proactive

Doing the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking

  • I am control of myself
  • I take the initiative
  • I am prepared
  • I choose my attitude, actions and moods.

Current and upcoming events. Additional information is on the attached fliers, the school website and our school Facebook page.

  • November 29th – December 2nd Penny Wars
  • December 5th – 9th Canned Food Drive
  • December 13th – Santa Claus photos
  • December 15th – Christmas Sing for Parents 8:30 am and 1:00 pm
  • December 16th – Minimal Day

 Dear Parents,

This week we experienced our first significant snowfall of the year. The snow is fun to play in, but we have noticed that several students have are not choosing to dress warm. In addition we have several students who do dress warmly, but as soon as they get outside they take their coats off and forget them outside. If your child is missing a coat please have them check our lost and found. There is a good chance that it is there. We love to watch how creative the kids get as they play in the snow. They love to build forts and roll large snowmen. These are all fun activities for the kids to participate in. In order to help keep our kids safe we do not allow the throwing of snowballs on school property. 

With our weather changing. Please be extra mind full of our pickup and drop-off zones. A few practices for each of us to follow that will make our school a safer place are:

  • Pull forward as others leave
  • Always use the crosswalks to cross to the parking lot
  • Never wave your child across the pickup zone
  • Stay off the cell phone in our pickup zone
  • Be courteous of others
  • Be on time for pick up. If you are late please call the school so that your child doesn’t worry.

As a convenience we have a bike and scooter rack at the back of the school. If your child is bringing their bike or scooter to school remind them to take the time to lock them up. This prevents the item from disappearing.

This month our theme is being Proactive

  • Doing the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking

  • I take the initiative
  • I am prepared
  • I choose my attitude, actions and moods.
