Summer is in full swing but it won’t be long until back-to-school sales begin. Mrs. Boundey and I are gearing up for an unforgettable new school year and you won’t want to miss one day! Get your backpacks ready in time to be at Yuma Adventist Christian School at 8:15 on August 14. We are looking forward to seeing your smiling faces.
This morning, our students lined-up in front of the flagpole for our traditional Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.
The countdown has begun! School begins at 8:15 on Monday, August 15! Mrs. Boundey and I are preparing our classrooms for a fantastic year! We are looking forward to having your child or children at Yuma Adventist Christian School this fall. If you have friends looking for a school, we will have registration on Thursday, August 4 from 4-6.
As a reminder, uniforms are required. The uniform includes a belt. Shirts must be tucked in. Tennis shoes that tie are required for all grades for p.e. If your child does not wish to wear tennis shoes all day, a pair can be kept at the school. For safety reasons, the shoes must be tied. (Velcro strips are also allowed.)
The uniform pants and shorts should be khaki. When your child is standing erect, the shorts must be longer than their fingers. We are striving for modesty in the classroom and on the playground!
Our uniform shirts are regular uniform polo shirts. There are four color choices: white, light blue, dark blue and forest green. A long-sleeved shirt with a polo collar is a great idea for winter if your child tends to be cold. Light jackets without pattern or words can be worn in the classroom but it must zip or button. Pull-over sweatshirts are not allowed. Hats cannot be worn in the classroom.
If you have any questions, please call the school beginning August 1.
We are looking forward to seeing you Monday, August 15. Promptness is important. Please have your child at school at least ten minutes before it begins. If this is your child’s first day, I encourage you to walk him/her to the classroom, say goodbye and leave. It will be difficult, possibly for both of you, but they do settle in faster when it happens like this. Be sure to remind the child you will be back at 3:30.
Enjoy the last few days of summer with your children!
August 15 is our first day of school for the 2011-2012 school year. You will find a list of school supplies on this site. Please try to have all of their supplies with your child on the first day of school. It may seem like a lot, but if you start now, and watch for the sales, the beginning of school doesn’t have to be that expensive!
