Santa's Helpers Program

In this season where we are fortunate enough to be thankful for all of our blessings, it brings to mind our Buckeye families in need.  Student Council will be running a school-wide collection to make gift bags of items that families can use.  We are asking that you consider donating the following items:

  • Kindergarten:                Comb/Brush
  • 1st grade students:      Shampoo/Conditioner
  • 2nd grade students:     Body wash/Soap
  • 3rd grade students:      Toothbrush/Toothpaste

Local churches have also asked for the following items for their pantries:  paper towels, toilet paper and dish detergent.  

In addition, the Primary Building will also be accepting donations of hats and gloves for our "donation tree".  All items are for the children.  Please buy hats and gloves at the approximate size that would fit a student in your child's grade level.

 

COLLECTION DATES ARE DECEMBER 2ND - DECEMBER 6TH

IMPORTANT CAR RIDER INFORMATION:

If you plan on picking your child up after school, please send a note in with your child so their teacher and office staff are aware.  The car rider placard's purpose is to help our staff identify which car the child is to get into - we still need to receive communication from you that your child will be picked up.  If you are picking your child up on a permanent basis, we will accept a note covering the entire school year or a specific time period.

 


REMINDER TO PARENTS AND VISITORS:

Per Board policy, photos of students within the classroom are not to be taken without the permission of the teacher.  In addition to this policy, we request that photos not be published on any social media website.

 


 

Reporting your child's absence

Absences for students in the Primary Building can be reported by calling 330-722-8257 ext. 9203.  If your child is sick or has an appointment, we ask that you call to report this by 9:30 AM.
