Parent Bulletin
December 11, 1997

Dear Parents,
My doctor has insisted that I go on health leave beginning in January. I have a few small health concerns (nothing serious in itself) and my doctor feels that it's important for me to take some time away from the stresses of my job. I feel badly about doing this, but I know it is the right thing to do.
Lynn Fuller will be taking over the principalship of Arbor Heights until I return. Ms. Fuller retired from the Seattle School District a short time ago and she has been a principal for a number of years. Her last assignment was at Maple Elementary School. She is excited about being here and I'm sure you will find her open and accessible should you need to contact her.
Thank you for your understanding and support.

Winter Program
Our Winter Program will be held next Tuesday, December 16th. We will have a full performance in the afternoon at 1:30 p.m. and two shorter performances that evening. Because of the space problem we have with an event like this we are dividing the evening show into two parts.
At 6:30 p.m. rooms 3, 4, 1, 19, 14, 18, 16 and 17 will perform. They should finish around 7:15 p.m. At that time we will clear the auditorium and at 7:30 p.m. rooms 9, 12, 15, 7, 8, 23, 21, 24 and 25 will perform. Children should report to their classrooms 15 minutes prior to the start of their program (6:15 or 7:15). Parking will be available on our playground.
If you have a child in both performances you are certainly welcome to stay for both programs or, you may elect to see the 1:30 p.m. show. If you stay for both shows in the evening you will need to keep your children, who are not performing, with you.

Computer Lab Closed on the 16th
Because of our Winter Program the Computer Lab will be closed on the evening of Tuesday, December 16th.

Scrip For The Playground
The SCRIP certificate program is in its seventh week and has earned our school $950. We have over 50 families and staff participating and anticipate increased participation after the winter break. Please remember to pick up your scrip orders every Friday if they are not sent home with your student. Thank you for your support. Suzette Nedervelt

There will be banking for students next Wednesday, December 17th during the lunch hour.

Early Dismissal
Our school will dismiss at 2:10 on Friday, December 19th, as we begin the winter vacation. We will reopen on Monday, January 5th.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

Carl Leatherman
