Weekly Reminders and Announcements


Additional Administrative Reminders

Vernon Communication Commitment

Parents and teachers collaborating is very important to us here at Vernon. We wanted to make you aware of the guidelines we are committed to complying with as a staff:

  • If a parent has a question or concern about class, we encourage you to contact your classroom teacher first.
  • Teachers will respond to your email, note or phone call within 24-48 hours.
  • Please check with teachers as to which method might be quicker for them to answer your communication and please make sure we have your updated information.
  • If you have a question or concern for the administration, we encourage you to call, email, or send a note and we will responsed within 48-72 hours, unless it is a matter of urgency.

School Goal: Great Attendance and Arriving to School on Time

Second Quarter and Fourth Quarter we will be using a Attendance Reward Program for K-5th grades. Each student that has perfect attendance and no tardies will receive a informational card about an animal from India. Students will also be entered into a weekly drawing for a stuffed animal. At the end of 9 weeks we will have a drawing for all students that have had perfect attendance for 9 weeks for large stuffed animals.

Just a quick repost of attendance reminders:

  • The 8:45 Bell. This is when instruction begins. Please make sure that your morning routine allows for plenty of time to get ready and to get here by 8:35.
  • We have Monday announcements right after the 8:45 bell rings. We will announce birthdays, weather reports, and Principal's drawings.  

 


Vernon School has adopted the Rotary's Guide to Relationships.

We use the 4 Way Test when making decisions.

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
