Updates 9/3/13

Hello, Wiley World!
Don't forget that this week is a 3 day week! There is no school this Friday due to a teacher workday. 

Help Us Maintain a Safe Learning Environment
We are lucky to have such a beautiful campus in the middle of a growing city! We need your help in maintaining the beauty and safety at Wiley. 

Please take a moment to review the following requirements:

*All students are required to be dismissed in the office prior to 3:15pm or at carpool, walkers, bus, or YMCA at 3:45pm. Children are not allowed to meet anyone at a location not listed. 
*All students that have walker passes signed by Mrs. McMillan are required to exit the first grade hallway after dismissal by a staff member then immediately leave campus to their appropriate destination. They are not allowed to stay on campus to 'play' due to lack of supervision.
*Walkers that are picked up by a parent or parent's designee should have a walker card from the office. 
*Anyone that remains on campus after dismissal is expected to follow the Wiley Way. This includes respecting self, respecting others, and respecting property. All children must remain in eye sight of their adult supervisor, not climb trees, structures, etc., speak to others with respect, and not damage plants or structures. 
*There are no dogs on campus at anytime. All dogs should not go past the sidewalks around campus. 
*Please refrain from cell phone usage throughout morning and afternoon carpool. 
*The carpool line begins on College Street. To maintain safety of students unloading and boarding special education personal and school vehicles, please remain parked until school staff wave you in. This is typically right at 8:45am and 3:45pm. 

Important Upcoming Dates
*No School Teacher Workday, September 6
*Open House; September 12, 6:00pm
*Early Release; September 27, 1:15pm dismissal 

Save the Date for The Produce Box
The Produce Box is teaming up with Interfaith Food Shuttle's Backpack Buddies Program to support the local economy and raise money for the Backpack Buddies Program! This program helps feed over 20 Wiley kids each weekend throughout the school year. As much as $5 of each ordered box goes straight to the program helping identified Wiley students mitigate food stress. Look for the order form in your child’s Monday folder or print it from today's email. Produce Box orders are due September 20th  and boxes will need to be picked up by you at Wiley on Wednesday September 25th.
