I want to thank all of you who supported our Grandparents’ Day. Special thanks go to Mrs. Melissa Brock for all of her hard work in putting together our musical program.
There has been much in the news lately about outbreaks of swine flu. I want you to know that this has not gone unnoticed here, and we are taking precautions. I spoke with our cleaning service last Friday to confirm our procedures. All of our bathrooms are disinfected weekly. In addition, all desktops in the classrooms are disinfected at the end of the week.
We have a middle school trip to the Space Center in Huntsville scheduled for May 13 and 14. There have been swine flu cases reported in Huntsville. We are re-assessing the situation and will make a decision this Friday regarding whether or not to continue with our plans to go to Huntsville.
The Board has approved the proposed $10 per month tuition increase. An updated enrollment contract is available in the office. Please remember to pre-register for 2009-10 as soon as possible.

Scholarships Available for Pre-Kinder We have recently learned that we have up to three scholarships available for pre-kinder students through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. These are federal dollars which are available and are based on financial need. If you have a child who you would like to enroll in pre-kinder for next year, or if you have friends or relatives who might be interested and may be able to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the school office. Please remember to tell your relatives and friends about the addition of our 3 year old pre-kinder class. Interested families should register their children right away. Some parents have inquired about the possibility of 3 year olds attending part time. This may be a possibility, but we need to make sure that parents who want to enroll their child full time have the opportunity to do so. Also, in order to offer the program, we have to have a minimum of seven full time students, or the equivalent.
PTF is selling Mothers Day baskets. These will be on display in the elementary hallway.
