Hello A.B. Combs families,
It was wonderful to see so many families join us for Open House this past week. We also appreciate the many “Grand” friends that joined us for lunch on Thursday and Friday! We certainly appreciate the ongoing support of our A.B. Combs school community. Please review the information below for important information for your weekly Combs update.
School Picture Day: Fall picture day will be Wednesday, September 21st. All students will have their pictures taken on this day as these pictures will be used for our school yearbook. Picture order forms will be sent home next week or information can be found here.
PTA: We have a wonderful PTA at Combs and we encourage all families to join! You can easily join using the link here. If you are interested in volunteering, please consider completing the PTA Volunteer Interest Form. PTA has also begun their first fundraiser of the year with Go, Play, Save books. Families may choose to order more coupon books or return the book sent home by September 22nd.
Military Form: Are you a military-connected family? In an effort to ensure that the unique needs of military-connected students are met, state law requires that schools collect information on military-connected students. The goal is to help accommodate these students by providing them with support and consistency when their parents are deployed, when they are transitioning between schools, and at other pivotal times during their academic career. If you are a military-connected family, please:
Download the attached fillable form.
Complete one form for each of your children.
Return to the school data manager, Ms. Denise Price and email to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline is Nov. 11. You may also print and return a hard copy of the form to your child’s school if you prefer.
Carpool: If your child is a carpool rider, all students should be ready to go when your car enters the carpool loop. Students should have their book bags ready to go to help the flow of the carpool run smoothly.
Visitors on Campus: We do ask that if you need to come on campus, you must check in at the front office. All guests are required to sign in and have a visitor badge visible at all times. Safety and security are our top priority.
Virtual Family Engagement Event: Our teachers have participated in professional learning about personality type and how that impacts teaching strategies with various learning preferences. Please join us on September 27th at 6pm for a virtual event called Type Tuesdays: Empowering Families Through Personality Type. Learn how to better connect for a happier home. View the flyer here.
Mark your calendars for these upcoming events:
Wednesday, September 21st: Fall Picture Day
Monday, September 26th: Teacher Workday, no school
Tuesday, September 27th: Virtual Family Engagement Event at 6pm
