GRANITE BAPTIST SCHOOL FALL REVIVAL & FAMILY NIGHT
Our Fall Revival starts Sunday, September 13th and runs through Wednesday, September 16th. We want to encourage all of our school families to attend and be blessed by the ministry of Evangelist Dave McCracken. GBS Family Night is Monday evening the 14th at 7 pm. This year our revival meetings will take place under the tent on the soccer field (weather permitting). All students attending GBS Family Night with at least one parent will receive a “No Homework Pass”. Any class with 100% of its students attending Family Night (with at least one parent) will receive a pizza party. All students attending GBS Family Night should be in their Dennis School Uniform or students may wear “Sunday Dress”.
SENIOR INFORMATION NIGHT: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th
For our seniors and their parents, please plan to attend this evening especially planned for you. In addition to college information and preparing and taking the SAT, information will be given highlighting the events and activities of the senior year, what to expect, dates, and expenses. The meeting will be in the Great Room at 7 pm and we will finish no later than 8 pm. We are looking forward to an evening of fellowship with you.
Seniors, please note the senior portrait session with Lifetouch has been rescheduled to Friday, November 20th at 9:00 am. Seniors should be receiving an information packet in the mail from Lifetouch.
NO SCHOOL: TEACHER IN-SERVICE – SEPTEMBER 24th and 25th
Thursday, September 24th and Friday, September 25th all our teachers will be attending our annual Teacher Convention. There will be no school on those days.
As a reminder, on sunny days our aftercare program will be outside on the playground. If your elementary child participates in our aftercare program, please send them in with an extra water bottle to drink while outside after school. All book bags, lunch boxes, jackets, etc. should be labeled with your child’s name. Thank you!
SECONDARY AFTERCARE (6th – 12th grade)
Secondary students not picked up by 3:15 will need to report to the gym bleachers for aftercare. Parents will be required to sign out secondary students not picked up by 3:30.
STUDENT DROP-OFF—STOP, DROP & ROLL
Parents, please help us in quickly exiting the children from your car in the morning in order to avoid back-ups on Oakwood Road. Please have all coats, backpacks and lunches ready and have children exit from the right side of your vehicle. K3-2nd grade parents should use the lane directly in front of the Kindergarten modular. Children 3rd grade and up may be dropped off in front of the church building. Parents should not exit their car while in the drop-off line. Thank you!
Parents, if your child has a food allergy we would like you to know that all of our pre-packaged hot foods in the lunchroom have the following on the label: “Food contains wheat, milk, eggs, and soy.” Our cheeseburgers contain sesame seeds.
School standard dress must be worn for all school activities. Students are not allowed to change out of their school uniform for any reason other than P.E. or sports practice. Students who are not leaving school immediately after P.E. or practice must change back into their school uniform for aftercare and/or games. Important: Parents please remember that gym shoes for indoor P.E. and for rainy day recess must have a non-marking sole. We recommend Velcro fastened shoes if your child cannot tie his/her shoes.
LOST AND FOUND
Articles in lost and found may only be claimed from 8:00 – 8:15 am, during lunch or from 3:00 – 3:15 pm. In order to encourage individual responsibility, a fee of $.25 for elementary students and $1.00 for secondary students will be assessed for each claimed item. Demerits will be given to secondary students that habitually lose articles.
Please remember that students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school. A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child. Please do not send your child to school within a 48 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea. No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
