Papillion-La Vista School District

Welcome to Hickory Hill!

 
 
News for the Week of September 19, 2014
 
A Note from Mr. Guthmiller

Parent-Teacher conference scheduling forms will be sent home with every student today. As an FYI, we will be using an online scheduling system this year. Please let your child’s teacher know if you have any questions. You may wish to meet with other staff members besides your child’s classroom teacher. Since we have quite a few new staff in our building this year I have listed them below. Please let your child’s teacher know if you would like to meet with any of the following specialists listed:


Katie Boyle, Counselor

Katrina Gill-Glover, Psychologist

Laura Hartman, Speech-Language Pathologist

Ami Nichols, Literacy Facilitator

Sherry Bergen, Media Specialist

Kendra Kuster, Music

Matt Imig, PE

Kurt Swanson, Art

Brandy Palatas, Band

Lindsey Smrcina, Special Education

Leah McGrew, Special Education

Rhonda Nicklin, HAL


I want to extend a thank you to all families who were able to participate in our Fall Fundraiser.  Preliminary figures are in and it looks like it was a great success.  As a staff, we also want to thank the Friends of Hickory Hill for their generosity in providing money for additional resources for our school!  The generosity of the Hickory Hill families is second to none!

As the weather begins to cool off, many students are starting to wear jackets and sweatshirts for morning Walking Club and recess when the temperature is still a bit chilly. Often by the time the end of the day rolls around, temperatures have rebounded and students no longer need the jacket. If your child brought one to school, but did not bring it home, please encourage them to check the lost and found out in the front of the office area. We are already getting a collection of “lost apparel” items that need a good home!

Thanks and have a great weekend!

Mr. Guthmiller

Smile, Fall Picture Day is Coming!

Picture Day is Tuesday, September 23rd. Instructions on how to order pictures were sent home with your child.  Prior to Picture Day, go to www.mylifetouch.com and enter the picture ID found on the Lifetouch flyer and envelope. Order your pictures, print off the receipt and send it to school with your child. Your child will give the receipt to the photographer to scan on Picture Day.

Fall Health Screening Scheduled
We will be conducting our annual health screening for grades 1-4 on Wednesday, October 1st.  The screening consists of height, weight, dental checks.  Students in 1st and 3rd grades will also have their near vision checked.  Parents will receive notification by mail if their student has a vision or dental concern. If you do not wish to have your child’s health screened, we must receive, prior to the screening, a written statement signed by a physician stating the child has undergone a physical within the past six months.
 
(Legislative Bill 713).  Kindergarten students who have not had a prekindergarten physical will also be screened at this time.

Inviting All Parents...Preparing for Kindergarten Begins at BirthDo you want tips on how to prepare your child for Kindergarten? Then this session is for you! Parents of children ages birth to five years are invited to attend this FREE hands-on, interactive session. Parents can expect to learn helpful tips to strengthen their child’s skills in all areas so they are prepared to learn when they enter kindergarten. There will be a short presentation followed by opportunities to visit different “stations” designed to show parents activity ideas they can use to strengthen cognitive, communication, motor, math and literacy skills in their young child. The presentation will take place on Thursday, September 25 from 6-8 p.m. in the PLSD Central Office located at 420 S. Washington Street, Papillion. The presentation is free and open to the public. Childcare is not provided, but please feel free to bring your children and anything you need to entertain them during the session.  For more information, contact the PLSD Early Childhood Center at 402-514-3242.

NEW Yogurt Option at Lunch This Year!
We will be introducing a new menu option this year.  Students will be able to choose between the regular entrée and yogurt each day.  This new yogurt option will be available to grades 1st through 6th. Students will be asked to make their selection in the morning when the lunch count is taken. We know that students will enjoy this additional choice!
 
Here are some things you will want to know:
·         This new yogurt option is available to 1st through 6th grades. 
·         Kindergarten students will   continue to be offered the regular menu entrée item.
·         Yogurt will always be served with a cheese stick and a grain item.
·         Students choosing yogurt will also receive the fruits, vegetables and milk on the menu.
·         The price of the yogurt menu is the same as the regular menu price.
