Order forms will be going home in backpacks soon. You can order in one of two ways:
1. You can do it online! You can order and pay online any time before Picture Day and up to two days after Picture Day and still receive your child’s order on time. Go to mylifetouch.com and use picture day ID EVTFXH6XM.
2. Return the order form with payment with your child. If you choose this option, your child must have the payment envelope at the time they have their picture taken or there may be a delay in your child’s picture order.
If you have any questions please call Lifetouch customer service at 800-736-4753, or you can contact the Picture Day committee chair Eileen Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will be needed to help bring classes to and from the gym throughout the school day on September 17th. If you can help please contact Eileen Morris at email@example.com.
It is important for you to read the following presentation since each Kindergarten-2nd grade student will have an iPad and grades 3-6 will have a Chromebook this year.

It is important for teachers to know how your child will be dismissed at the end of the day. Please confirm dismissal procedures with the classroom teacher at Back to School Night. In addition, if your child’s transportation changes during the school year, be sure to contact the office before the end of the school day.
Lunch is every day, 11:45 – 12:30. Be sure to send your child to school with a lunch. It helps the office greatly when student come to school with their lunch already packed. Please try to avoid dropping off lunches.

Enders-Salk PTA is piloting a new web-based communications tool called MemberHub. This new system will enable us to increase communication and provide the best resources and tools for our families and volunteers. We will still have blurbs of information posted on the school website but are going to start using MemberHub to post our full newsletter. If things go well we hope to use it for more things in the future such as calendar organization with automated event reminders, volunteer sign ups, and receiving online payments for membership dues and other items.
