WALK OR BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY!Sleepy Eye Elementary School, St. John’s Lutheran School, and St. Mary’s Elementary School are proud to announce the FIRST annual “Walk or Bike To School Day” on Thursday, May 11th. This is a national event that promotes walking or bicycling for several reasons:
- Physical activity
- Teaching safe pedestrian and bicycling skills to children
- Awareness of how walkable & bikeable our community is
- Concern for the environment
- On May 11, students will be recognized for walking or biking to school. There will be a class contest to see who has the most bikers/walkers! On May 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, school officials will track all those who walk or bike to school. Parents are welcomed to walk with their child too. We encourage those who can, to be a part of this healthy lifestyle.
The YES! team is sponsoring a World Wear Project Shoe Box Program. There are drop off boxes in the high school and elementary offices. Any gently worn shoes with leather soles or dress shoes are acceptable. NO canvas, sandals, or shoes with holes can be used. Your donation will help out others in developing countries such as Chile, Honduras, Guatamala, and other places, PLUS it keeps them out of the landfill. Please support this project and pass the word to others who can also drop off shoes they wish to donate. Our goal is to remove 180 pounds of shoes to be used by those who need them. Time for some Spring cleaning and service to others in need. This drive will run until the first week of May Thank you.Mark your calendars for these events in May: May 9, 2017: Elementary Spring Concert (K-4)- 2:15PM - Elementary Gym May 9, 2017”: Elementary Spring Concert (5/6 grade) – 6:00 pm – Elementary Gym May 9, 2017: Elementary Art Show is from 2:00- 8:00 pm in the School Cafeteria

URGENT REMINDER- I am still seeing parents stop and drop off students in the parking lane out front. Please do not continue to do this. This is dangerous for our students when you stop and drop, or wait in the driving lanes of the school parking lot. There are visitor parking spots to use when dropping off or picking up your children before and after school, otherwise, please use the designated pickup/drop off route designated on the map that has been previously sent out to all families. The safety of our children is of great concern and blocking the driving lanes in the parking lot is an unsafe practice. We ask that ALL parents follow this procedure. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Thank you. John Cselovszki
