Friday: PJ Day
The Kolling PTO has a board position available. Please see the attached if you are interested: PTO position.pdf
Attendance letters were mailed home last week. If your child has 10 or more absences or tardies this school year, you may be receiving a letter. The purpose is so you are aware of their attendance and to help you make decisions in their best interest. We are not advocating that you send your child to school when he/she is ill. We are however asking for your assistance in avoiding absences that may not be necessary.
An order form was sent home for yearbooks. Orders are due March 15th. You may send in the order envelope with your payment or you may order online at www.inter-state.com/yearbook and enter code 34545G
The most convenient way to communicate dismissal changes is to write a note and send it in with your child. Make sure the note is big enough that it will not get lost between larger papers, includes your child’s first and last name, includes the teacher’s name, and includes the date for the changes. If you are not able to write a note, we prefer that you call the office and leave a message on the voicemail or with a secretary. Most importantly, please make sure changes are in by 2pm each day. If it is an Adventure Club change, remember to notify Adventure Club and our school.

Beginning second semester Skyward will automatically generate attendance phone calls beginning at 10:00am. Parents/Guardians who do not report student absences will receive a phone call. Skyward will also generate attendance and tardy letters to keep you updated. Thank you for partnering with us in your child’s education.
Mrs. Pawlak and her 3rd grade team have arranged some great opportunities for Kolling families to give back. A flyer of information was sent home with students and is attached here: Kolling Community Connections.pdf
When was the last time you visited the district or school website? I just want to remind parents that this is another great source of information about what is going on at Kolling and some great resources that are available to parents and students. Do not forget to click on the NEWS tab to see some really great pictures of things taking place at Kolling.
If you are ever looking for community opportunities, there is a “COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES” link on the district website under the “ABOUT LCSC” tab. There is a ton of extracurricular community activities listed there.
Lake Central School Corporation will permit access to the fieldhouse for walking on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 PM from November 5, 2018 through March 20, 2019. There will be no walking during winter break. Walking will resume on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.
Additional times may be made available depending on the popularity of this community exercise opportunity.
Visitors should park in the front of the school near the pool and enter through Door C, turn right, and sign in prior to entering the fieldhouse. Walkers will be asked to sign an injury waiver upon entering the facility for the first time.
