CANDY CANE LANE:

A Children’s Holiday Store

Friday 12/9/22 through Wednesday 12/14/22

Our 6th Annual Children’s Holiday Store is almost ready to open! We are excited to offer this event for the students at Falcon Ridge Elementary again this year.  Items are priced between $0.25 and $13 (with most items priced under $6), so there will surely be something available for any budget.  Candy Cane Lane is not a fundraiser for the school or the PTA.  All products will be sold at cost; this is a service provided for our children by the PTA.  This shopping experience is a wonderful opportunity for our children to think about others during the holiday season by purchasing small gifts for the people they love.  As always, participation in this PTA sponsored event is completely optional.

Candy Cane Lane will be open for our Jr. Falcons from Friday, December 9th through Wednesday, December 14th.  Each class will take a turn to shop sometime between Friday and Wednesday, during the school day.  Please see the attached Holiday Store Schedule to see what day your student(s) will be shopping.  Please note, the store will not be open to the public or outside of school hours.

Please see the 2nd attachment (Holiday Store Flyer) for information on purchasing a gift card voucher for your student to use at the store.  This will alleviate the need to send cash to school with your student.  Please understand that the volunteers will help your student spend the entire amount of the voucher as the cash back (change) feature will not be available.

The types of products offered at the store can be viewed at:  Gift Line Preview 2020 - Holiday Gift Shop Fun Services Colorado

Lastly, we will need many volunteers to make this event a success!  We need at least 5 volunteers in each of the following time slots:

Friday 12/9:  9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Monday 12/12:  9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Monday 12/12:  1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Tuesday 12/13:  9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Tuesday 12/13:  1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Wednesday 12/14:  9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Wednesday 12/14:  1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Please contact Karen Beebe via email (karenrbeebe@msn.com) or text (801-419-3271) to volunteer.  This is such a fun and fulfilling event to witness.  Please reach out today to help make this a great experience for the students at Falcon Ridge Elementary!

ATTENDANCE MATTERS! 

Did you know that even if your student is only a few minutes tardy to school it can add up to missing instructional time that could affect your child’s progress with reading and math? Even 5 minutes a day can add up to 900 minutes or 15 hours of lost instructional time in one school year. 

 

Arriving On Time for School and Class: 

  1. Makes sure that your child doesn’t miss out on the important learning activities that happen early in the day when they are most alert. Early morning learning activity is often reading or writing and your child can lose so many opportunities to learn these critical life skills. 
  2. Helps your child to learn about routines and commitment. 
  3. Gives your child time to greet their friends before class and this can reduce the possibility of disruptions in the classroom. 
  4. Class disruption can make your child feel uncomfortable and can upset other children. 
  5. Arriving on time every day makes children feel good about themselves.

 

ACTIVITIES: 

 

Sept 12: PTA meeting 1:30

 

Sept 14: Leader of the Month assembly 2:15

 

Sept. 19: Vision screenings

                JSD Family Fun Fair 5:00-9:00

 

Sept. 22: School Community Council meeting 5:30
