RABC

News from Raptor Activities Booster Club (RABC):

We had a great meeting this past Monday, thank you to everyone who was able to be there with us.  We had the pleasure of hearing from Mr.  Goerner_Philip@svvsd.org  & Pranav Iyer (SC Student) on a real exciting new club called Makerspace.  We encourage everyone to find out more about this amazing group of students & what they are doing.  You can contact Mr. Goerner for more information at Goerner_Philip@svvsd.org.  Be prepared to be impressed!

 

After Prom is April 16, 2016 from 11:00pm-2:00am in the F Wing of the school.  This is a great FREE event for all Juniors/Seniors & their dates to attend after the Prom.  Juniors and Seniors do not have to go to Prom to attend.  We provide this event to help keep our students safe on Prom night.  All teams/activities have been assigned a part of the event that they are responsible for organizing.  Please watch for information from the Parent Rep of your student’s team/activity for ways in which you can help with this event.  We are accepting donations for prizes, scholarships, & general operating expenses now through April 8th.  You can bring in cash, checks, or gift cards during school hours and give to Melissa Lehman, please mark the envelope “After Prom”.  All monetary donations are tax deductible.

 

Bingo has been doing well this year.  A huge thank you goes out to Crystal Behrens & Amy Griswold who have been the Rock of the Bingo Operation!!  Without these 2 ladies, we would not be able to have Bingo and all it brings in financially to our teams/activities.  With that being said, Amy has a senior and will be leaving us at the end of the school year.  We are in need of more Games Managers!!  Please contact Crystal at raptorbingo@gmail.com com if you want to learn more about helping in this way.  It may sound scary, but it really isn’t!

On Monday night we voted in our new Vice President, Patrice Powell.  We are very excited to welcome her to the Board, we know that she will be a great addition.  Thank you for stepping up Patrice!!

Our school store has lots of really great products for sale.  New PJ pants are in & they look very comfortable, get them before they are gone!!  They also have stadium chairs left, these are truly a back/bottom saver for all of those hours sitting in the bleachers.  You can purchase all items on line at the school store link https://squareup.com/market/silver-creek-store or on Thursday’s during the lunch periods.

We encourage everyone to take time to watch our amazing Winter Athletic Teams in action before the season ends!  You can find all of the schedules on the Athletic Website http://schs-raptors.com/

Our next meeting is February 29, 2016 at 6:30 in the Library – mark your calendars and join us!

Information About School Lunch

St. Vrain Valley School’s Nutrition Service staff believes that nutritious school meals are a main ingredient in students’ ability to learn in the classroom. It’s hard for students to focus when they are hungry. Our staff takes pride in providing meals that meet the USDA nutrition requirements, include as many local ingredients as possible, but taste great too! These employees support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. Approximately 18,000 student meals are produced in our kitchens each day. In the 2014-15 school year this team produced over 3.25 million meals and snacks for students using over 850,000 pounds of local fresh produce.

Members of our management team are certified in Food Safety and all department team members receive certified food safety training year-round to ensure safe food is served to our students. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact us at 303-682-725!

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

 

TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE – please contact Lois Davis at 720-494-3721 or direct to 720-494-3738  or email  davis_lois@svvsd.org.  Be sure to include the student’s first and last name as well as the date and reason for the absence. The absence must be called in or emailed within  48 hours of the absence in order to be excused.  Absences called in after 48 hours cannot be excused unless approved by the student’s assistant principal.

TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY–  If you would like to pull your student out of school during the school day, please send him/her to school with a signed note (or email)  indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student should bring the note to the attendance window before school starts.  The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class he/she will be leaving early from.  Students leaving early should always sign out at the attendance window.  You can meet your child at the attendance window or you can tell him/her to sign out and meet you outside.  The attendance clerk will use the note to excuse the student in Infinite Campus.  If the absence is a last-minute appointment, call the office as soon as possible so your student can pick up a pass during passing period.  We know that emergencies arise and we would like to make the pickup as easy as possible.  Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.

Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students can pick up prior to leaving for an extended time.  Forms are only needed if a student will be missing for more than 3 days.  This form allows teachers to document any assignments a student will be missing and their current grade in class.  Parents and students are required to sign the form, and after teachers have added grades/homework, students must get signatures from administration and return the form to the attendance clerk.

Health office visits- Students who are not feeling well need to let their teacher know so the students can be excused to visit the health office.  Students leaving school from the health office can sign themselves out and meet parents outside.  Parent/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not the teacher’s classroom.

 

Infinite Campus Tutorial

Infinite Campus is a great resource for parents to check grades, homework assignments, attendance and much more.  Click here for more information.  If you are having trouble logging in to Infinite Campus or RevTrak, our Help Desk can help.  Contact them at 303-702-7730.

Low Cost Health Insurance

This health insurance is available through Medicaid and CHP+ and enrollment occurs right here through St Vrain Valley School District.  Once children turn 18 and are no longer in school, Medicaid no longer counts parent income towards the child’s eligibility!  Please call The Healthy Kids Initiative at 720-722-1454 to see if your kids qualify today!

Health office visits- Students who are not feeling well need to let their teacher know so the students can be excused to visit the health office.  Students leaving school from the health office can sign themselves out and meet parents outside.  Parent/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not the teacher’s classroom.

These employees support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. Approximately 18,000 student meals are produced in our kitchens each day.

Happy New Year from the Raptor Activities Booster Club (RABC)!!

We welcome you all back for the 2nd half of a great school year.  Hopefully all of your students got well rested during the break and same for you too because we will be needing lots of help to finish out this year!!

As many of you know, we lost a very dear friend from our Booster Club and SC family.  Stephanie Bogrett-Gould passed away on Saturday December 19th.  Stephanie was the talented producer for our Dancing with the Silver Creek Stars fundraiser.  She brought in all of the professional dancers to work with our SC staff and organized the whole show, start to finish.  She was amazingly talented and fun to be around.  I was blessed greatly to call her my friend and to work with her closely on the DWSCS event.  We keep her kids, Joe and Mayson in our thoughts  and prayers.

We will be having our next RABC Meeting on January 25th at 6:30 in the Library.  All are welcome to attend.  We will have a guest speaker from the Fox Hill Country Club to briefly share an option for our team banquets, we will be voting on General Fund Requests, assigning After Prom duties, voting in a new Vice President, & a few other general things.  You won’t want to miss out!!

A few volunteer opportunities that we are seeking immediately and in the future are…

The absence must be called in or emailed within  48 hours of the absence in order to be excused.  Absences called in after 48 hours cannot be excused unless approved by the student’s assistant principal.

TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY–  If you would like to pull your student out of school during the school day, please send him/her to school with a signed note (or email)  indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student should bring the note to the attendance window before school starts.  The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class he/she will be leaving early from.  Students leaving early should always sign out at the attendance window.  You can meet your child at the attendance window or you can tell him/her to sign out and meet you outside.  The attendance clerk will use the note to excuse the student in Infinite Campus.  If the absence is a last-minute appointment, call the office as soon as possible so your student can pick up a pass during passing period.  We know that emergencies arise and we would like to make the pickup as easy as possible.  Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.

Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students can pick up prior to leaving for an extended time.  Forms are only needed if a student will be missing for more than 3 days.  This form allows teachers to document any assignments a student will be missing and their current grade in class.  Parents and students are required to sign the form, and after teachers have added grades/homework, students must get signatures from administration and return the form to the attendance clerk.

Health office visits- Students who are not feeling well need to let their teacher know so the students can be excused to visit the health office.  Students leaving school from the health office can sign themselves out and meet parents outside.  Parent/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not the teacher’s classroom.
