PARENT HOMEWORK!!! LET'S GET 100% PARENT PARTICIPATION!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!  We are committed to make this an outstanding year for all of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and our community!! We need 100% of our parents to register for the Parent Portal and to complete a More than a Meal Application (whether you will eat at the cafeteria or not).  This is your assigned parent homework for the first week of school.  You will positively contribute to Van Gogh’s parent participation rates and towards 100% classroom participation which will enable the entire class to be rewarded.  Each parent has been given an individual PIN number to register.  Both parents must register separately to achieve 100% participation. PINs will be sent home or you can get yours in the office to register at: http://parentportal.lausd.net

 

Parents and guardians can submit a meal application online. The online application will be processed within 24 hours, and you will not have to fill out a paper application and mail it or hand it over to the Food Services Manager at your child's school. By clicking on the link you can access the online meal application. https://www.myschoolapps.com/Home/PickDistrict

 

Weekly Announcements

Good Evening Van Gogh Staff and Families,
     Thank you parents for following the safety guidelines at drop-off and dismissal.   On Tuesday, September 10th our Standing Committees will be meeting at 1:40 p.m..  We are still looking for parent representation on these committees as well as our School Site/Governance Council.  We have 2 openings and our Orientation/Election is scheduled for Thursday, September 12th at 2:30 in the auditorium. A flyer went home explaining the role and commitment and a nomination form.  Please consider being a candidate for this decision making council.  We meet 7 times a year and the commitment is for two years.  Enrichment begins next week so be sure to register for our exciting classes and Orchestra.  Please be sure to limit absences to no more than 1 for the first 25 days which is Sept. 25th.  If you adhere to this every 25 days you will meet the goal of 96% attendance. We are 30% short of 100% Parent Portal registration so get on it parents!! All classrooms with 100% registration by Wed. 9/11 will be rewarded.  Wednesday is also Picture Day so bring your smiling faces to school. Remember to wear your Van Gogh T-Shirts on Fridays to show your Van Gogh spirit.  Have a wonderful evening!  I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Sincerely,
Ms. Merloni

LOST AND FOUND

Please label your student's jackets, backpacks, and lunch boxes with their name.  This will help ensure that lost items may be found.  Our collection of unclaimed items grows rapidly and is donated to charity at the end of each month.

 

Peanut Policy

Please support us......Due to students with severe peanut allergies, we request that snacks and lunches stay PEANUT FREE! 

We would appreciate your support in avoiding sending foods that contain peanuts or any other form of tree nuts, such as sandwich crackers filled with peanut butter, granola bars, and trail mix.

Some healthy & nutritional alternatives include: ham, roast beef, tuna, egg salad, cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs, fruit salad, yogurt & fruit, fruit rollups, apples with caramel, hummus, celery & carrot sticks, animal crackers, popcorn, pudding or Jell-o, and Rice Krispie Treats. Thank you for your cooperation!
