Donnell Announcements - October 19, 2017

-Parents if you are registering to be chaperones for the Washington DC trip, please remember that the cost is based on 4 people to a room occupancy.  If you don't want to share a bed and would like a double  occupancy or prefer to be in a room alone, that will cost more. Prodigy Student Travel can assist you in making those arrangements. Deadline for registering students and chaperones is October 27.  Your deposit must be made to be considered registered.

The Donnell Art & Craft Club will meet on Tuesday, October 24, after school in the art room until 3:15.  We will be painting mini pumpkins!  No need to bring anything but yourself! Hope to see you there!

-Student Forms:  We still have several students with incomplete Final Forms Assistance is available here in the school.  You must have forms completed in order for your student to participate in extracurricular activities and field trips.  If you need help, please don't hesitate to contact us.

-The 8th grade Iowa Test of Basic Skills and CogAT testing will take place Oct. 16-20. Attendance at school is highly recommended, please reschedule appointments so students are at school for the testing as this cuts back time out of classes for makeup testing. The data from the  tests are used to place students in 9th grade classes. Please be sure your students get a good night's sleep on Sunday too!

-If your address changes, please update your information on Final Forms and submit a proof of residency to the office as soon as possible. We don't want you to miss any correspondence sent from the school!

-The Chess and Board Game Club will meet on Mondays after school in Mrs. Long's Room 214 until 3:15 p.m.  Please bring your own chess game if possible.  We do have several board games available.  Come join in on the fun.

-Always be sure and check our online calendars for the most updated information about events that may be happening in our district/bldg. (fcs.org<http://fcs.org>)


-The 8th grade girls lost last night to Glenwood 12-25 and 14-25. Marissa Bodi lead the team by far in serves with 10 total serves and 5 aces. Sonoma Eynon, Sydney Swisher and Liz Crites each scored a kill. The girls have their last game tonight against Fassett here at Donnell starting at 4:30pm.

- Students planning on trying out for basketball or participating in wrestling need to make sure all Final Forms are completed and that they have a completed an up to date physical. Students who did not play a fall sport need to give the physical to their basketball or wrestling coach prior to the first practice/tryout.

Building Reminders:
Attendance Reminder:  It is important that you call the attendance number (1-844-305-3755) before 8 a.m. to report your child absent or late. It will not let you enter information after 8 a.m. for the current day. Always send in a note if you child has missed a day or will be leaving early.
Parents - please do not pick up or drop off any car riders on Baldwin Avenue.  All car riders should be dropped off and picked up on Lime Street.  It is very dangerous having students run across the street in front of buses.  Our students' safety is our top priority - please use Lime Street. Doors open in the morning at 7:20 a.m. and students are expected to be out of the bldg. and picked up by 2:45 p.m. each day.
