First, Open House is Tuesday night. It will work like it has for the last few years. We will have 2 sessions, the first will start start at 6:30 and the second will start at 7:20. Hope to see everyone there at one of the sessions.
Second, if you are new to Pleasant Union, the PTA would like to welcome you to the school with an informational breakfast on Monday morning at 9:20 in the cafeteria.
This Friday is our first early release of the year. Carpool will begin at 1:10 and buses will begin leaving at 1:15.
Last, there were a number of important forms that have gone home in the first couple of Tuesday folders. (1) There was a blue one in the first Tuesday folder about family members in the military. We need all of these forms back, even if you don't have family in the military. Please make sure you put your child's name on the form when you return it so we can keep track of whose forms we have collected. (2) There was also a technology form that went home last week. This form allows you to either grant or deny all access to technology at school. If you deny access then your child will not be able to use any computers, iPods, iPads, or the internet for school work. This form will follow your child through their time in Wake County, so you won't need to fill out another one unless you decide to change your child's permissions. (3) The last form that went home was about our first field trip. It is an in-school field trip with Science Fun For Everyone. We have had them come to work with our students for the last couple of years and the kids have a great time. We have 3 field trips scheduled throughout the year and the cost is $8 each. Please make your checks payable to Pleasant Union Elementary or use the online system.
That should cover it for now. If anything else comes up, I will let you know. Have a great week!
