    Did you volunteer at Oktoberfest, help in your child's classroom, host an exchange student or have you attended a Verein, RSI or APC meeting?  Don't forget to write down your volunteer hours.  Anything you do to support the school counts toward your family volunteer requirement of 4 hours/month.  To log your volunteer hours, either use the computer in the front office, or visit the Volunteer Hours Log form.

    Please remember that there are small children you may not be able to see in our parking lot at all different times of the day.  It is imperative to drive slowly in the parking lot and through our pick up lane.  We also ask that you respect the directions the crossing attendants are giving you, not only is it safer, but greatly speeds up the process for all.  Municipality of Anchorage Code states no faster than 15 MPH in ANY parking lot and tickets in School Zones are double fines.

    Tardy Policy is in effect. If you have not signed and returned a copy of the form to your child's teacher, please do so as soon as possible.

    If you have not yet paid your Student Activity Fee, you will be receiving a reminder soon. Students who do not pay the activity fee may not be able to participate in certain activities. If financial hardship is an issue, please make an appointment with the Principal.

    When lining up your vehicles for pick up along the side walk, please pull ALL THE WAY forward to the corner of the sidewalk.  When waiting in that line and you are near the cross walk, please do not leave your vehicles running.  The fumes are hazardous to the students and staff.

    To speed up the Pick-Up process, please place a sign in the passenger window of your vehicle with the grades and names of children you are picking up.  That way no matter who is on the radio, we can insure your children are called down quickly. 

    Off Campus after school programs (Arctic, Taekwondo, Etc…) will be picked up from the Lobby.  (This is one more reason to reduce the noise in this area).

    Make sure you have given an old T-shirt or shirt to your child's teacher to have on hand for Art class, unless you want that amazing artwork they are creating to also become a permanent part of your child's wardrobe... 

    Just a friendly reminder about Alaska’s car seat requirements.  We want all of our students arriving safely to school and at home each day!! AS 28.05.095:  A child “over four years of age but less than eight years of age who is less than 57 inches in height and weighs 20 or more pounds but less than 65 pounds shall be properly secured in a booster seat that is secured by a seat belt system or by another child passenger restraint system that meets or exceeds the standards of the United States Department of Transportation and is used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.”
