Deadline to order June 22, 2018
Schoolsupplies will be available to order through SchoolKidz. Lists for your child's schoolsupplies will go home in this week's Friday folders. SchoolKidz will only accept online orders. Schoolsupplykits will be delivered to students' homeroom classes by the first day of school. The deadline to order schoolsupplies online is June 22.
If you would not like to order supplies through SchoolKidz, you can use the supply list in this week's Friday folders, purchase the items over the summer, and have your child bring them with them the first day of school.
All Families: Register for Bus Transportation for 18-19
The transportation departments from Dublin, Hilliard and Olentangy schools request all new and returning families to register your students for busing this fall by July 31st, 2018. If you are a new family moving to the area, and don't know your new address yet, please contact them as soon as you have this information.
If you'll be traveling to Bishop Watterson High School this summer, please note that the City of Columbus will be doing paving work on Foster Street which will impact traffic for Summer Physical Education and various camps. See the map below for recommendation on drop off and pick up.
Summer Garden Help Needed
The school garden will continue to grow throughout the summer, but helpers are needed!
Could your family help? All school families are encouraged to visit the garden whenever it fits your schedule. If you see weeds, pull them. If the soil seems dry, water it. If vegetables and herbs are ready to harvest, take them. It is simple to help! "Papa Jack" Rekstis, our true garden expert, will be found working in the garden many days this summer...but needs your help.
No sign-up necessary...just come when you can!
