Alive in Me was started by the Shamrell family when their son, Caleb, sadly passed away in December of 2015.  Alive In Me is a foundation that collects toys to give to kids in area hospitals over the holidays. One year the Alive In Me foundation raised 3,500 toys for the kids in area hospitals.  The drive will run until Friday, December 21 and there will be wrapped boxes in the commons area across from the office in which to place the unwrapped presents. Thank you from the Cody fifth grade classes!

Message from the Cody 5th Grade ELP Students:

Dear Parents of Cody School,

We are going to do a clothing drive for the needy and homeless and we need your help! Send your kids to school with a clothing item that is in good shape for people to wear. We will accept pants, sweaters, coats, mittens\gloves, hats, coats, and socks of any type. Please put your donations in one of the baskets in the commons area. Our goal is to collect at least 400 items which is about 3/4 of the kids in the entire school. Helping us is helping those in need get ready for winter. We ask every student to donate at least 1 item. Our event starts on Wednesday, December 5th and ends on Wednesday, December 19th. We hope you will help.  We thank you for your support!

ELP (Extended Learning Program) Fifth Graders,

WINTER PROGRAM, DECEMBER 6:    Cody will be having two performances for the Winter Program again this year.  Due to the amazing number of family and friends who have attended in previous years, it has become necessary to offer two performance times.  Cody will use the following system to reduce the number of audience members in a given performance and therefore reduce the wait time and increase the seating availability. Cody will alternate which half of the alphabet goes first every year.

  • Friends and family members of students whose last name begins with letters L – Z will attend the morning performance at 9:00 am.  Doors will open at 8:30am.
  • Friends and family members of students whose last name begins with letters A – K will attend the afternoon performance at 1:00 pm.  Doors will open at 12:30pm.

Some things to keep in mind for this event:

  • Bus lane must be kept clear at ALL times for both busses and possible emergency vehicles.
  • Busses arrive between 8:10am and 8:20 am to drop off students for the day.  They begin lining up for dismissal at around 2:50 pm.
  • Lunch and recess routines will be finishing right up until 1:00 pm.

Parking for Winter Program: The west parking lot and the playground blacktop will be open for parking.  NO parking in the drop off / pick up lane. There is also NO Parking on East side of building due to construction. To view map on where to enter building for winter program click here.

Pleasant View

Student Drop-Off Procedure Reminder from Principal Cotton:  As the temperatures get colder throughout the year, Pleasant View typically observes more and more students in the drop-off zone getting out of cars as close to the school as possible.  This means that parents are having their kids wait in their car until they are near the steps that lead up to the patio.  Please know that this causes a large back-up in our drop-off zone and driveway.  When this happens, kids may end up tardy to school because the doors on the patio area of the building are automatically locked at 8:30 a.m.

As I explain in my drop-off/pick-up zone video that is posted on the Pleasant View website, the entire sidewalk is considered the drop-off zone.  When the line of cars comes to a stop, children should begin exiting cars and walking along the sidewalk to the school.  If everyone would follow this procedure, student drop-off would take little time and few students would end up tardy to school.  I started this message with recognizing that temperatures are getting colder.  Please have your child appropriately dressed in a winter coat, hat, gloves, etc. each day so they can exit the car along the sidewalk and remain as warm as possible during this short walk into the school from the car.

A variety of videos and pictures about our pick-up/drop-off procedures can be found at this link:  Pleasant View Parking Lot Procedures.  Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns about our student drop-off procedures.

4th – 6th Grade Battle of the Books: Pleasant View students in 4th-6th grade are invited to participate in a Battle of the Books style competition. Using the Iowa Children’s Choice Award list, teams of students will have the opportunity to compete in a local, district, and regional events.

Announcements

Reminder of Junior High Library Policies and Procedures: Books are checked out for a two week (10 school day) time period. There is a five day grace period from when the book is due to when the overdue fine is incurred. On the fifth day a fine of $.25 starts accruing at a rate of $.05 a day until the book is returned. Courtesy emails are sent out every Monday morning. If the “subject” line states overdue notice it means that the book(s) has not been returned. If the “subject” line states fine notice it means the book(s) has been returned, but it was returned late and a fine has incurred. Fines can be paid in the library. Students are allowed to have one book checked out with a fine. Please note, we cannot transfer money from a student’s lunch account to pay the library fine.

Cody Library Reading Incentive: I mustache you…what are you reading?  Cody Library is offering a reading incentive for the month of November that asks the question, “I mustache, what are you reading?” Can you suggest a good book to a friend? If Cody Library circulates more books in November 2018 compared to November 2017 (3,286 circulations) we will celebrate with a mustache day at the end of the month. Paralleling our month long reading incentive, Cody Library is also encouraging students to check-out materials that they simply enjoy reading.  This may include:

  • Expanding our definition of reading to include non-fiction, graphic novels, comics, nonfiction, comic strips, humor, magazines, newspapers, and online text
  • Getting students to recommend reading they do like to other students.
  • Providing students with role models for reading in school and at home.

Although these suggestions come from the “Guys Read” initiative created by renowned children’s book author Jon Scieszka, everyone’s love of reading will always be supported here at Cody Library!

For Safety and Accountability: Please remember to contact the main office if your child plans a different after school event other than their normal after school routine.  Cody takes this responsibility very seriously.  Please write a note in their student planner, call (563)332-0210, email Mrs. Kipper, kipperjennifer@pleasval.k12.ia.us, or Mrs. Spinsby, spinsbyc@pleasval.k12.ia.us

Cody ALICE Safety Drill: On October 25th, Cody Elementary School  will be conducting an ALICE safety drill.  We encourage you to visit with your son/daughter after the drill to learn about any questions or concerns.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any such information.  The teaching point we ask for you to reinforce with your son or daughter in the context of this drill is the great importance of always reporting any safety concerns they observe or hear about.  Let law enforcement and/or a school official know and let them determine the next best step.  By working together as a community, we can maximize the safety for all.

Message from Counseling Office:  SENIOR PARENTS – All 12th grade students were invited to attend a session of Senior Seminar this week.  This program is designed to provide seniors with helpful information regarding college planning.  Topics included applying for admission/scholarships/financial aid, accessing transcripts and requesting letters of recommendation.  We encourage you to view the Senior Seminar PowerPoint (CLICK HERE FOR POWERPOINT)and discuss these things with your student.  Please pay special attention to the “Important Dates” for this fall and watch for further information regarding Parchment, our new electronic transcript service.  Counselors also asked seniors to complete a survey (CLICK HERE FOR SURVEY) to share post-secondary plans.  This will assist us in providing future programming and improving individual communication with our students.    Thank you for your assistance in confirming that your son/daughter completed the survey.  Best wishes for an exciting and successful senior year!

PVHS Counseling Services: PVHS is happy to report on the continuation of counseling services from Vera French.  Kaitlyn Dwyer will have office hours at PVHS on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 8:00 to 3:00.  According to Vera French, “The premise of the school-based program is that many children aren’t receiving necessary mental health services because their parents or guardians are unable to get them to or maintain regular therapy appointments due to a number of barriers (transportation, time, etc). Placing a therapist in the school helps overcome these barriers and reach more children.  The focus of the program is to address emotional issues and teach children skills to overcome challenges interfering with their success in school and overall emotional functioning.” If you would like more information regarding Vera French services, please contact Kaitlyn at dwyerk@verafrenchmhc.org
