HS/JH Parents- At “Meet the Teacher Night”, you will follow your student’s schedule and hear his/her teachers’ expectations for the upcoming school year. This is a time for parents/guardians to develop an understanding of what is expected of your student for the school year. Parents are encouraged not to bring their children this evening. This is not a time for conferences with each teacher. If you would like to have a conference with a teacher, we encourage you to set up an appointment to do so. Each period will be six minutes in length. You will have three minutes of passing time just as your child would to reach your next class.  If one parent comes and attends one of their child or children’s schedule, all of your child/children will receive extra credit in all of their classes. Please do not bring your child’s schedule with you. Please pick the one up at the door in order for your child (ren) to receive the extra credit.

HS/JH Parents-We will also be hosting the mandatory technology meeting in the IMC at 6:53pm. If you were unable to come to the meeting on July 25th, this will be your chance to last chance prior to the school year starting to complete this meeting. Each parent and student must meet with Mr. Woodley prior to receiving their Chromebooks.

We hope to accomplish contact with 100% of our students’ parents and guardians. We want to establish an open line of communication between our teachers and our parents and guardians. Please mark this date on your calendar.

If you have any questions, please contact the Pearl City School office at 815-443-2715.

Sincerely,

Chris Wallace, Principal, Pearl City Elementary School

Kelly Mandrell, Principal, Pearl City JR/SR High School



July 2017

Getting Ready for the 2017-2018 School Year:

As you may have noticed, this packet is different from previous years.  We have omitted the “usual” school calendar.  The reason for this is because many times events get changed due to weather or other unforeseen reasons.  We will continue to send out the calendar in the newsletter and the calendar is updated in a very timely fashion on our website.  School supply lists have also been omitted from the mailing this year.  Lists are available at Walmart, Shopko, the school website, or in the main office of the school. 

This year we are moving to online registration.  To complete this process you need to log in to your Skyward account and click on “2017-2018 Online Registration”.  Skyward will then walk you through the steps to register your child online.  (If you have more than one child you will need to repeat this process for each child).  After that is complete, the next step is to send in the completed handbook form that is found on the district website at the end of the student handbook, the donation form (also on the website), and two forms of proof of residency (the list of acceptable items can be found on the website).  Please remember, one of these forms needs to be a currently dated document.

Other forms, that may be optional for you, include: drug testing form (only for 9th graders or new high schoolers to the district), medication form, and free/reduced lunch form.  If you would like to be considered for free/reduced lunch, please fill out the enclosed form and return it to the school attention Mrs. Janis Sheffey.   Dental exam forms are needed for students entering Kindergarten, 2nd, and 6th grade.  Physical exam forms are needed for students entering PreK, Kindergarten, 6th, and 9th grade as well as new students from out of state.  Eye exam forms are needed for Kindergarteners.  All of these forms can either be mailed or emailed to the school office: jsheffey@pcwolves.net, tstrock@pcwolves.net, bschneider@pcwolves.net. 

As well as registering online, you can pay fees and update your child’s/children’s lunch account.  Fees and lunch money can be paid through e-Funds.  E-Funds is accessible via the school website.  If you would like a new gym shirt for your child, you will need to manually add one on when checking out. (shirts are only for JH/HS students).  Also, please be mindful that extra curricular fees can also be added to a students total these would include: JH football, volleyball, or basketball.  HS football, volleyball, golf, cheerleading, speech, basketball, track, baseball, softball, academic team, and FFA.  These fees will need to be paid before the activity begins.  Even if you decide not to pay online, e-Funds is a great way to keep track of your student’s lunch account.

Registration is NOT complete until ALL forms and fees are received in the school office. 

A $25.00 LATE FEE WILL BE ACCESSED TO REGISTRATIONS

RECEIVED AFTER AUGUST 4, 2017 

If online registration is not an option and you are not able to make the registration date, please contact the school office 815-443-2715.  Summer office hours are Monday-Thursday:  8:00 am-4:00 pm.

On the back of this sheet are two mandatory meetings for both students and parent/guardians.
