Governor's Early Literacy Foundation

CAREGIVERS & FAMILIES!

There is a potential opportunity from Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation for our school to take part in a book delivery program this summer!

If this program is made available, each rising first-third grade student in our school will receive six high-quality books this summer at no cost to you. While our school awaits confirmation, we want to make you aware of this potential program and get permission for your child(ren) to participate. 

For your child(ren) to participate in this program, we will need to securely share your directory information with Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation. Directory data includes things you may see in a phonebook, like names and addresses.

If you WOULD like to participate, no other action needs to be taken.

If you choose NOT to participate, please call (423) 498-7131 to opt out of the program. Taking this step will exclude your child from participation and your child will NOT receive the books. In order to opt out, you must call by 4:00PM on Friday, April 8th. After that time, we
will not be able to remove your child from the recipient list.

¡CUIDADORES Y FAMILIAS!

¡Existe una oportunidad potencial de la Fundación de Alfabetización Temprana del Gobernador para que nuestra escuela participe en un programa de entrega de libros este verano!

Si este programa está disponible, cada estudiante de primer a tercer grado de nuestra escuela recibirá seis libros de alta calidad este verano sin costo alguno para usted. Mientras nuestra escuela espera la confirmación, queremos informarle sobre este programa potencial y obtener permiso para que su(s) hijo(s) participen.

Para que su(s) hijo(s) participe(n) en este programa, necesitaremos compartir de forma segura la información de su directorio con la Fundación de Alfabetización Temprana del Gobernador. Los datos del directorio incluyen cosas que puede ver en una guía telefónica, como nombres y direcciones.

Good evening parents, this is Hixson Elementary with the North River Learning Community calling with updates and reminders for the week of September 12th. 

Our Kids First coupon book sale is off to a great start! If you haven’t already, please sell a book to a friend or neighbor or purchase one for yourself. The book is loaded with great coupons giving the purchaser plenty of opportunity to save far more than the $10 purchase fee. Students will win a prize for selling even just one book! Prize levels for students offered by the Fund for Excellence begin with one book and go up to 50 books. A full list of savings from the book and prizes available to students has been sent home with students. All orders must be placed - and all money turned in - online through the OSP website. Orders placed will be filled and sent home the following day. The final day for this sale is Monday, September 26th or while supplies last. 

Looking ahead, mark your calendars for Family Math Night Monday, September 19th from 5:00 until 6:30 p.m. Details will be coming home soon.

Friday, September 30th will be our first Perfect Attendance Reward of the school year! Students with no unexcused absences through Sept. 27th  will celebrate their achievement with popcorn and a movie! Please help us lower our absenteeism rate by making sure your child is at school each day. 

Thank you
