RED RIBBON WEEK
Trumble Park will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week October 23-27. The National Family Partnership organized the first Nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign. NFP provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Here are the dress up days that students can participate in as we celebrate Red Ribbon Week...

ELEMENTARY REPORT CARDS AVAILABLE ON OCTOBER 23RD
Elementary report cards for all Papillion La Vista Community Schools are online. First quarter report cards will be available on October 23rd. Parents can access the report card from the school website by clicking on the popular bar and then online report cards. The username and password would be the same as parents use for the app, or to complete the online verification forms at the beginning of the year.
PICTURE RETAKES TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24TH
Picture retakes will be available for new students, those that were absent on picture day, students that forgot their money, and anyone wishing to have their pictures retaken. Pictures can be ordered using the attached flyer or online at lifetouch.com. Order forms are also available in the office. If a student requires a “retake”, the student must bring in his/her picture envelope with pictures. The photographer will retake the student’s picture and a new order will be placed based on what was previously ordered. If you have any special requests, they can be written on the outside of the envelope but be sure to avoid writing over any bar codes.
Our Fall party will look a little different this year. It will be on Friday, Oct 27. Since we are doing a costume parade we will not need parent volunteers in the classroom. You are welcome to send a costume to school with your child that day so he/she can participate in the parade. Students will have about 10-15 minutes before the parade starts to put their costume on. You are welcome to watch the parade! The parade will begin at 2pm. As you enter the building we will direct you where to go to watch the parade.
* Please do not send makeup, weapons, etc. with your child for the parade. There is a PTO sponsored evening event the night before (Tricks and Treats) in which students can wear makeup and be in full costume. If you have signed up to bring a snack/treat or drink for the classroom then please drop that off in the office sometime that day.
If your student is going to be absent or late to school, a parent or guardian must contact the school office to report the absence. Please call 402-898-0466 prior to 8:30 am. If you call anytime before or after school you will reach the answer machine. Please leave your child's name, their teacher's name, and the reason for the absence. You can also email that information to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your student has an appointment during the day, it is helpful if you notify the office or the student’s teacher via phone or email prior to the appointment so we know when to expect you and can have your child ready in a more timely manner. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

* No homemade treats will be served in the classes.
* All treats must be store-bought items. A list of ingredients must be attached. If there is any doubt as to the ingredients, treats may not be served.
* We understand there may be students with particular allergies that may require a specific homemade item. Contact the office if you have this situation. In general, there are store-bought items available to accommodate most allergies.
* All treats must be pre-cut and ready to serve, with appropriate utensils, etc. included.
