Weekly Announcements

 

Good Evening Van Gogh Staff and Families,
     This week our Valet Volunteers are from Mrs. Khorani's class.  Please help us keep our students safe at drop off by volunteering for the valet line.  Our pajama drive continues until Tuesday, Dec. 16th .  We're still only half way to our goal so please be sure to pick up a pair of pajamas and socks for boys or girls ages 3-14 and drop them off in the office. Remember all donations benefit the Foster Children's Resource Center.   Tomorrow is the 75th day of school.  If you have 3 or less absences you are in the proficient percentage to reach no more than 7 absences for the school year.  Those of you who have more at this point,  please monitor your absences so you will not exceed 7 for the entire school year.  Many students are habitually arriving late to school.  Please commit to having your students here on time.  The first bell rings at 7:56 a.m.  Students arriving after 8:01 a.m. are considered tardy. Parents should come to the office to sign their students in that are arriving late.  We will have our wonderful Holiday Program on Thursday, Dec 19th with a performances at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.   On Friday we will have a minimum day with a 12:30 p.m. dismissal.  It is also Spirit Day so just roll out of bed and wear your pajamas to school. PTO will also be meeting on Friday at the Knollwood Country Club at 9:00 a.m. for a Cookie Exchange.  If you would like to take part in the fun please let Allison Rekrut know at 714-585-4660.It's a tradition at Van Gogh to include baby pictures in the yearbook of our 5th grade students.  Please be sure to email your child's picture to vg.yb.photo@gmail.com no later than this Sunday, Dec 22nd.  Our winter vacation begins next week and school will resume on Monday, January 13th.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Sincerely,
Ms. Merloni
