Parents WE NEED YOU!

Ms. Hallof is looking for a small group of parents to work together to support teachers, spread the word for upcoming events, and help make Mintie White a stronger community of learners. Please contact the office if you are interested in being on this team.

Site Council Needs You!

 

 

School Site Council Meeting. The School Site Council is made up of teachers, staff members, and parents. Together we will create the School Improvement Plan, monitor spending, and evaluate whether we are meeting our goals and objectives throughout the year. Please come and let your voice be heard, become a school leader, and support school events. Childcare is provided at these meetings. We will meet the first Thursday of each month except in April due to vacation. Please see the school calendar for additional dates. WE NEED YOU! Together We've Got This!

We Need YOU!

Parents: We need volunteers for classroom support, field trips, fundraisers, ELAC and School Site Council. Won't you consider becoming a member of our volunteer team? Please come by the office and complete a volunteer packet for fingerprinting as soon as possible. You are a valuable part of our team and we need you!!!!!

Safety Policy

PLEASE REMEMBER THERE IS NO SUPERVISION FOR STUDENTS UNTIL 7:30 A.M. Please make sure your child is not on campus until that time for their safety. 

To ensure the safety of all students, staff and families it is necessary for every person who comes on campus to sign in at the front office. Office staff will ask what the purpose of your visit is and have you sign in to our visitor sign in sheet. You will then be given a visitor pass with the current date. We also ask that you please sign out when you leave campus as well. If you are bringing lunch for your child we will ask that you leave it at the front desk and we will call the student to come and get it before they go to lunch. 

Afterschool students and parents have already established a safe and comfortable routine for bringing their children a snack before Afterschool Program begins. This is working very smoothly with this new system in place. We thank you for your understanding that our primary purpose is to maintain a safe and secure school environment for all students, staff, and visitors.

BACK GATE PASSES

If you would like your child to exit through the back gate on California Street you will need to come to the office and fill out a Back Gate Pass. This will allow your child to exit through the back gates at 2:30 p.m. Unfortunately we are not able to offer this service to the families of our Kinder and T/K students as these children need to be signed out. Also, due to supervision, those students in the Afterschool Program will not be eligible for the back gate passes as they must all exit out the front of the school.

Ooodles of cuteness from our TK and Kinders!

Great and Mighty Eagles serve our school!

A special shout out to our afterschool class that has taken up a community service project for our school. They have spent endless hours weeding around the upper playground fence, pulling weeds, picking up leaves and trash, all to make our school more beautiful. Thanks to Ms. Qualls and Ms. Algee for their supervision and direction of these students. Great and Mighty Eagles indeed!

Outstanding Community Service
