Below is my weekly message for Kolling Elementary.
As you know, Kolling is continuing with our monthly Bully Prevention Program. As part of our prevention program, we would like to get your input on how you think things are going at our school as it pertains to bullying. Please take a moment to participate in our short, 9 question, multiple-choice parent survey and feel free to leave general comments as well. We value your input in making improvements for our school. The link to the survey is listed here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GHD6S37
I would like to remind parents that tutoring is on Wednesdays and Thursdays, arrival time is 7:25 am, and tutoring is only for students who were invited. We have had many students arriving to tutoring 10 to 15 minutes late, which is a significant amount of time since tutoring is only 30 minutes 2 times a week. Teachers are asking that you please make sure to get your child to tutoring on time in order to fully take advantage of this valuable support for your child.
Lake Central High School Science Club students will be hosting a science camp for interested 3rd and 4th grade students onOctober 15 from 9am to 12noon. If you are interested in signing your child up, please see the attached informational documents and the registration form here. Science Camp.pdf
Bulls tickets have arrived! Monday is the day that tickets will be sent home with those students that sold twenty or more items. Unless a note is received Monday morning, the Bulls tickets will be sent home in a sealed envelope with your student. If you prefer to pick up your tickets someone will be available from PTO on Monday, September 26th from 7:30-8:00am and again from2:30-3:00pm. If a parent ordered a ticket to attend with their child, but has not paid for it, the student and parent tickets will not be sent home with student. It MUST be picked up during one of the two times on Monday. Please note - PTO will not be responsible for lost or misplaced tickets.
As you saw in the PTO Newsletter this month, we are collecting Box Tops again this year. The Box Tops program is an easy way to help raise money for our school. Last year we were able to raise over $2,000 from Box Tops. All you need to do is:
1. Cut out labels (Box Tops for Education).
2. Put them in a sandwich bag or envelope labeled with your child's name, teacher and grade.
3. Send them to school with your child.
Each month, the student who brings in the most Box Tops will win a $10 Target gift card. Also the grade level that brings in the most during the year will win a special prize. If you have any questions please contact Shannon Swanson at email@example.com.
Reminder - Drug Prevention Program
Lake Central High School will be hosting the drug prevention program, Stairway to Heroin on Tuesday, October 11th from 6:00 – 8:30PM. This is a powerful program for parents and children ages 12 and older to help prevent drug usage as well as provide education on gateway drugs like alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drugs. The program will be viewed by 10th and 11th grade students at LCHS during the school day. The district is also offering the program in the evening to the entire Tri-Town Community.

Lake Central School Coporation has added three new resources in order to improve communication between students, teachers, parents, administrators, and the community.
Below is a short summary of what each system provides for parents and students. If you need information on how to create an account, please contact the Kolling main office at 219.365.8577.
Use Skyward to monitor grades, print report cards, monitor attendance, and access student enrollment information. You will need your child’s school ID to create your Canvas account.
