Week 8

Posted by S. Davis on 10/9/2014 3:46:56 PM

Mr. Ray is in his second week of full instruction. He is doing a great job and the students are responding to his instruction.

We are headed to Hickory Nut Gap Farm next Thursday from 8:15-1:30. We need two chaperones to go with us. Let me know if you are interested.

Tomorrow evening form 5:30-6:30 we will have a Read to Achieve information meeting in the media center. You are invited to attend to get some more information on the Read to Achieve Legislation that might affect your child.

Dickson's annual Health Fair is tomorrow and we still need volunteers to help from 9:30-11 and 12-12:30 at our Vision Screening and BMI stations. Even a half hour helps! Please contact Emma Rosen at emma@acsf.org or 828-350-6851 to volunteer. 

And don't forget that picture make-up day is also tomorrow! If you didn't receive your pictures, didn't get a chance to order the first time, are new to IDES or would like a re-shoot your child is free to participate.

The following students ordered pictures and will definitely be reshot tomorrow:

Madison, Ruby, Rio, Lila and Stella

From the nurse:

I'm sure you are all aware of the diagnosed case of Ebola in the US.  Buncombe County Department of Health & Human Services has developed a great Ebola Handout for you to review.  As always, the CDC is going to be your best source of accurate information if you have further questions. And don't forget, hand washing is the best way to prevent the spread of any and all germs!
